    I don’t think that’s a unicorn. Not that there aren’t things about the painting that aren’t…fanciful, but unicorns might not be one of them.

    1. G.D. says:

      damn. you’re right. i think i got Obama/unicorn on the brain.

  2. Scipio Africanus says:

    Is that Newark or Memphis?

    1. G.D. says:

      i was gonna guess Trenton.

    Is this the man you wish your President could smell like?

  4. I expect to see this hung proudly when I get my next haircut.

    now, this one is old. this one came out right after the election. still cracks me up, though.

  7. sweet jebus!

    where are those roses coming from?

    If the Pres had an image like that, then the rich would not have gotten the tax breaks. This is funny.

    Who can spot the Freudian and deconstructionist “sinister female genitalia”?

    Hint: its in the lower half of the painting and resembles another sinister body part.

  10. Is this some kind of a joke? No, that’s going too far, lol
