Can we at least get Sam Wilkinson to agree that THIS art is inherently s**ty?
A moment of levity for those needing a brief respite from the intellectual heft of the Inequality Symposium:
This Breibert homage masterpiece (priced at $4,000) is an absolutely great find from the blog Wonkette:
But as awesome as this visual is, the real find is in Wonkette guest-writer Doctor Zoom’s fantastic story on this “painting” (sold on the website Patriot Depot), and how it was discovered to be a violation of copyrighted material.
Just as entertaining is a quick browsing of the Patriot Depot website itself, which is a giant plate of conservative kitsch covered in awesome sauce. My favorites include the This Chick Is Packin’ 2012 Calendar and the DVD Drive Thru History, where a guy uses a magical monster truck to travel back in time and learn the true history of our country that Prius-driving liberals don’t want you to know about. But it’s all good.
(Biggest hat tip possible to Metrosexual Black AbeJ. Seriously, I cannot thank him enough for finding this.)
