23 year old US journalist Esther Honig used Fiverr to hire photoshoppers from different countries to make her beautiful by their country standards. She collected over 40 chops, paying from $5 to $30 per chop. As we can see from the results, the beauty standards differ quite a bit from country to country.
Take any celebrities and show how their looks would change if they were born and raised in a different nation / country. Feel free to change their face features as well as haircuts, clothing, and add any national accessories.

Every fall, masses of revelers descend on Munich to celebrate Oktoberfest with Bavarian culture and mainline beer. Happily, local German pubs are bringing Oktoberfest to most big cities in the world with brews and sausages galore – minus the overcrowded tents and epic bathroom waits. This year's festival began on Saturday, Sept. 20 and runs through Sunday, Oct. 5, adding up to over two weeks of buzz-worthy specials, contests and prizes.
To celebrate Oktoberfest at Freaking News, create beer brands specific to some countries, their cultures or political parties.

April 7 is National Beer Day, a celebration of beer, fellowship, and the good people who facilitate beer's transformation from a humble grain to a glorious libation. National Beer Day, however, is not just another evening at the bar. Participants are encouraged to give one another the gift of beer by buying each other drinks and to express their gratitude to their favorite brewers, bartenders, and so forth by means of generous tips, thank you notes, or whatever else may be appropriate.
Create new beer brands by editing any existing beer brands, or creating them from scratch.
Many thanks to rarely for the themepost.
Bad economy has taken its toll on Hollywood - many film directors are without jobs for months, so they are eagerly signing contracts to direct foreign low budget films. Will this lead to Americanization of foreign movies?
Take any movie and give it a theme of some nation or country. E.g. - "French Pie", "Forrest Gumpski", "Iranian Star Wars", etc. Think of some national symbols (flag, people, national architecture and animals) that will fit nicely into your movie poster(s). Your movie titles should still be in English, however.
October 11 is National Coming Out Day in the United States.
This special day is celebrated by lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) communities and their supporters. This day was established in 1988 with a gay and lesbian parade in Washington DC, where some half a million people participated. Despite the name, this holiday is observed not just in the United States but also internationally. United Kingdom celebrates this day on October 12.
In celebration of National Coming Out day, photoshop celebrities (and politicians, famous characters) as gays, lesbian, or transgender (changing their gender). We are sure there are so many of them than just can't wait to come out of the closet - let's help them. Note: by "celebrities" (in this contest as well as in any other FN celebrity contest), we normally mean any human celebrity, famous person (historical, etc.), fictional characters (Yoda, Shrek), figures from famous works of art (e.g. Mona Lisa, Venus De Milo), so don't be afraid to use them.
