I'm so glad to hear that you're wanting to refocus and make time for humorous skins. I really love a lot of the skins like that are just comical and silly. This is pretty much my main focus when I look for skins to buy in the store.

Beekeeper Singed was a submission that has been floating around the forums for years and I'd still buy that in a heartbeat because it's such a humorous idea.
Don't forget Heartseeker Draven. A well loved idea that's barely noticed.

As much as we in the US might be confused and possibly not interested in something so uniquely regional in another country, we have to remember that the rest of the world isn't always going to get what we here find amusing. Again, that's not to say we won't make a good idea, some ideas are just more universal, and I think we're better served by embracing what we universally find funny or silly.

It's pretty cool to see just how similar our sense of humor is when you look across the entire world!
Talking about holidays, have you ever though on expanding your holidays and festivities more worldwide? I'm pretty sure something like the Rio Carnival would spawn some really awesome skins on par with the Lunar Revel ones.

That includes the US in my opinion as well. That's just how I feel though. I could be wrong.
Yes, Lu Bu Jarvan.

Pool party Ziggs, Astronautilus, Battle Bunny Riven, those are all pretty universally appealing takes on humor.

It is funny because you forgot to mention Corporate Mundo. Everyone Loves Corporate Mundo.
