    I dunno. For a while now it looks like the selected photos are more artsy-fartsy than usable in a Consumerist post. I notice that few, if any, are ever used. What happened to the ones that actually were usable?

      Sometimes more artsy pictures appear here because otherwise we wouldn’t have a use for them and I really like ’em. I have a weakness for urban ruins, for example, though there aren’t any this week.

      We often use pictures that aren’t literally of the post topic and are more metaphorical, so the artsy stuff is more on topic than one might think.

      The cash cat is pretty versatile, though. You have to admit that.
