#1 Am I the only one who is sick and tired of Mr. Beck ?

#2 He should have applied for an arts grant. Conservatives should crowd out the left with applications.

#3 You can do that but then you need to crowd out the review panel...

#4 #1 ...never get sick of public displays of Left falling back upon the exercise of power in absence of principles they shove down others throats. Truth to Power my eye. Most anything that punches through the false mask the Ministry of Truth erects over their party of 'tolerance' has value. We are told to suck up to stuff like Christ in Piss as art for whatever rationalization they deemed appropriate. Go Alinsky on them - Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules and Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.

#5 I don't know. After bammy being crucified on the draperies I think it is a simple, powerful, clear point. The great looming question is how much would it have gove for?

*Nobody has yet touched on artistically the barry on curtains piece. No, the execution is decent...especially considering the painter is not Boticelli and the subject no Venus, it is good to see that there are artists who can still paint figures and forms other than snakes and slatters. No, its the compostition - the message is obvious, placing the crown of thorns is some 1st year art school mistake crap. Its like watching a pro quarterback underhand pass the ball downfield, or ordering the hottest of the hot wings on the menu, then dashing tobasco on top of them just to show everyone else in the restaurant that them wings are hot (though other customers can see/smell/feel the ghost chili wings the eater is making a childish flamboyant gesture just in case you didn't get it).

Its a pandering simpletons accessory to the compost. Now, if that was the point that can be discussed. I would love to ask the arteeest that question.

#6 I get it but I didn't care for the original and don't care for the knock-off. Both strike me not so much as art and satire but as p0rn.

#10 Barbara, you have a way of cutting to the nub of the matter. Political correctness would dictate you refer to Pee Pee Mo. Probably get you beheaded in muslime countries regardless of what terms you use. They just can't take a joke.

#11 Nope, tipper, couldn't find it.

There are definitely some sick and dirty-minded "cartoonists" in the world - almost as sick as Mo-ham-head.

It's the second one down, Barbara.
