Hilarious how?

For once she's wearing a complimentary dress but that green flower's got to go.

Are there going to be childish comparisons of the statue's endowments with . . .

I would never bring talk of such things up.

I wish the taxpayers would send me on vacation. Come on you guys. Send me some cash.

SteveR said...

For more reasons than one, not another stimulus package.

I am sorry, but nothing seems funny anymore about the Obama's destroying everything. The Russians were just given everything we built up to defend ourselves since Reagan, and no news reports are mentioning that fact. I more and more understand why the Obama's oppose the Honduran Government's action in enforcing their Constitution when a proposed Dictator for life asked for a vote on his new term of office. The jig will be up for these newly elected destroyers in 2012, unless they vote out the Constitution in the meantime.

(If it's a statue of David:)

See...turning her back on the joooos.

I agree with ricpic. How is this HILARIOUS?

(I know, I know: nothing kills a joke like having to explain it)

Some more views of the statue.

Aren't Jews supposed to be circumcised? Or was anatomical correctness not important back then?

At any rate, the statue is of Hercules, in the Capitoline Museum:

The green flower reminds me of the 1970's when we were all into 'crafting' and made hideous flower brooches out of paper mache and Styrofoam trays.

Time were tough then and we used anything we could to make crafts. Macrame around wine bottles, hanging plants from macrame holders, paper egg cartons into hanging mobiles, paper mache into jewelry. I still have all the craft books from 1965 through 1995 or so. Every now and again, I look at them and am amused at how we dressed and what was stylish THEN.

Guess them times is comin' back in Michelle's ugly so called fashion choices. Same old ugly clothing, same crappy cars, same high inflation.

deja vu all over again.

DBQ: but back then we were entering a new ice age. This time they got it right.

A rather small schwantzstucker on the dude, sorry to say.

Michealangelo's David is uncut. Perhaps it was considered risque to show the glans in art.

This guy's head looks too small for his body and his neck too long. (Reading Hector's link--this was done to emphasize his height). He looks best when seen from his right.

It is funny how the club is bonking, I mean nudging, her shoulder.

Pogo said...

Does anyone look good when photographed in front of such a statue?

Best hurry on by, as she does. Nothing good can result from the proximity, save for juvenile joshing.

What do YOU wear around the trailer?

"...nothing seems funny anymore about the Obama's destroying everything."

Yes, such a shame that the Obamas entered office when the nation was at its apex of power and glory and prosperity, when all was right both domestically and internationally, and the future looked to be ever brighter. That bastard came in and within weeks turned this utopia into the wretched hell we find ourselves in now. If only we could have kept GDubya in for another term, we might by now have achieved the goal of peace for all mankind forever, with every man and woman a millionaire (at least, residing in gilt palaces encrusted with jewels.

Pogo said...

In contrast, we now can promise that our children and their children and even the generation after that will be paying for our folly, our spendthrift ways, our inability to say no to our fleeting wants.

So we will always be remembered, although perhaps not fondly.

Over in Italy, the men have penises and balls.

This came as a shock to Michelle Obama, who has successfully neutered her husband.

American women freak out at men with balls.

I guess so... they made a deal of it.

RuyDiaz said...

Is that the statue of Hercules?

Well, at least it wasn't the statue of Hercules' son, Herculito. Or the statue of Hercules' father, Herculon.

(Only Spanish speakers will understand the joke.)

NKVD said...

Cookie - you keep proving that, as a Nader voter, you are even whackier than most of those clueless ninnies. You make Jeremy look sane.

Fred4Pres said...

Meanwhile Obama is doing a bootie inspection. Schwing!

Michael said...

what is the deal with Michelle's gigantic ass? I can certainly understand why the photographers focus on the buff arms, but the ass is quite the target.

reader_iam said...

That's one gorgeous statue, isn't it?

Meanwhile, Fred4Pres beat me to posting the OTHER picture, which I confess did make me laugh out loud. Sarkozy's expression makes it.

Sucks.

One of the few chances American women have to see an adult man uncut as Darwin created him.

Darwin's just the messenger of how it is, was at the beginning, and ever shall be.

(See also: Copernicus, Galileo, Newton, Max Planck, Pasteur, Einstein, Chandrasekhar, Watson-Crick, etc. etc.)

If he's really staring at her tush, in a Clinton-Jessica Valenti moment, he's a perv, because Brazil's Mayara Tavares, participant in the Junior 8 Summit, is only 17 years old:

But maybe she stepped on his foot or something, and he's amused by her effrontery.

I think they already had been ammused by her ef-frontery and now were assesing her back-ary.

That photo made me laugh out loud LOL

Now as a true Frenchman, you know Sarkozy is just looking at Obama and thinking. Ah yes, very nice-a.

jdeeripper said...

It looks like somebody put the head from a smaller statue on that one.

Maybe the original was headless like those awful LA Olympics statues.

Scroll all the way down on the ace of spades hq page where O is checking out the ass of a 16 year old girl.

There's a new presidential seal...very funny. The Latin says "What's your sign?"

It's "HILARIOUS" because most members of the press are intellectually stranded at 14 years old. That's why when John Ashcroft stood in front of a bare-breasted statue the press sniggered like a bunch of teenagers, until it was finally covered...and then the story became, "look at how uptight those Republicans are..."

They are perpetual adolescents. They're all 14 years old. And they have handed our country into the hands of nothing but 14year olds.
