Birds With Arms has become the biggest craze in animal photoshopping ’round the net. It apparently dates back to an early post on a forum with the title “Post pictures of birds with arms,” created August 11th, 2008. About six months later, it was featured on Something Awful, which then led to the creation of a single topic tumblr. The rest is pretty much internet history, as photos were spread around like butter on a piece of toast.

We picked some our favorite armed birds, and added some of our own to the bunch, so you can enjoy them for yourselves.
