TTP Founders: “We’re not mean like those other picture-of-the-day Websites!”

Click here to hear Tacky Tourist secrets revealed to WBUR's Monica Brady-Myerov

Thanks to NPR’s “Here and Now” program for today’s shoutout to Tacky Tourist Photos by replaying its 2010 interview with co-founders Ilya Mirman and Darren Garnick (fellow visionary Peter Koziell was with us in spirit).

Amongst the FASCINATING tidbits you’ll learn are:

* Strategies for invading South American countries with pretty college co-eds.

* How French bystanders responded to our creative Eiffel Tower photo shoot.

* The real motivation behind dressing as Anne of Green Gables.

* How to take the most creative vacation photos regardless of whether you are visiting an exotic locale or your neighborhood tourist trap.

* Why Turkish toilet seats are funny; and

* Why TTP refuses to make fun of the people pictured in our featured photos.
