You know who else made unoriginal watercolor paintings...*

Woman artists of the Surrealist movement liked to paint self-portraits in the bath.

George H. W. Bush, you may feel that you are a woman surrealist painter trapped in a male philistine body, but you are not fooling anyone else.

Uh, that German dude?

I came over here from Balloon Juice and all I can say is please proceed, Kiwis.

Also, I had to jump through some hoops to sign up for comments? I think I may have done it wrong and consigned myself to being followed around by G**gle everywhere I go.

Must thank Anne Laurie for sending us the love.

Thanks for that, Smut Clyde. I never know what to do when the first word is English letters and the second is a picture of some old building, or in Hebrew or whatever.

What am I spoze to do with THAT?

Man, that's a helluva case of Painter's Block, when all you can think of to paint, particularly if you're a rich dood with nice shit all around you, is your naked lower body in the bathtub.

I'm wondering how that worked, from a functional standpoint. I see three possibilities, in order of increasing creepiness. One, he took a picture of his wee wee in the tub. Two, he actually painted or perhaps sketched while sitting bare-arsed in the tub. Or three, he did it from (quite specific, highly detailed) memory...

Eeeewwwwww......

When life gives you Hebrew you make Hebrewade.

P.S. I also thank Anne Laurie for turning me on to this most excellent blog. That Tigris skateboard thing cracked me up, and I need cracking up lately.

P.S. I wanted to say cracked me the fuck up like we would do on Balloon Juice, but don't know the protocol here. Can I say fuck?

Smut Clyde said...

I just came back to say fuck!

Copy/paste from something left at Balloon Juice:

" Fuck, as most words in the English language, is derived from German, the word ficken which means “to strike. In English, fuck falls into many grammatical categories.

As a transitive verb for instance; “John fucked Shirley.” As an intransitive verb; “Shirley fucks.” Its meaning’s not always sexual. It can be used as an adjective such as “John’s doing all the fucking work.” As part of an adverb; “Shirley talks too fucking much.” As an adverb enhancing an adjective; “Shirley is fucking beautiful.” As a noun; “I don’t give a fuck.” As part of word; “Absofuckinglutely”, or “Infuckingcredible.” And as almost every word in a sentence; “Fuck the fucking fuckers”.

As you must realize there aren’t too many words with the versatility of fuck. As in these examples describing such situations such as fraud; “I got fucked at the used car lot.” Dismay; “Ah fuck it.” Trouble; “I guess I’m really fucked now.” Aggression;” Don’t fuck with me buddy.” Difficulty; “I don’t understand this fucking question.” Inquiry; “Who the fuck was that?” Dissatisfaction; “I don’t like what the fuck is going on here.” Incompetence; “He’s a fuckoff.” Dismissal; “Why don’t you go outside and play hide and go fuck yourself?”

Although I think "I stuck my dick in a warthog's hole" is....fucking brilliant.

(Did I say fuck enough?)

Frankly, I am not surprised that Dubya has kinda-sorta tumbled to the hatred the world holds for him (being restricted to a pre-recorded message at the Convention, when Reince Priebus was allowed to take the podium drunk as a zombie, strikes me as a likely turning point) has resulted in him spending a large amount of his conscious (and let's be realistic, most likely his unconscious hours as well) in the bathroom.

Which, if his paint-splatters have any realism at all, are stupid and hideous.

(Did I say fuck enough?)

Not enough for ME, but I am an outlier, admittedly.

Smut Clyde said...

Non-Dubya Bush, ZRM.

Reports differ, Smut.

I've never misrepresented that.

Smut Clyde said...

Reports differ, Smut.
Unpossible!

Unkind person is unkind.
Someone needs to do a mash-up of the shower self-portrait and Magritte's Not to be Reproduced but I can't be arsed.

Uh, that German dude?
I'm sorry, the judges were expecting the answer "Churchill".

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

LOL. I respect your chuff in avoiding admitting you were wrong RONG RONG RONG.

I hope squirrels drink your beer.
