Have you seen what Michelangelo's "David" looks like after a 2-year loan to the United States?

Ha ha.

Sent to me by an emailer who bemoans his own lack of Photoshopping skills and says he's always wanted to concoct "Newt Descending a Staircase." Here's "Nude Descending a Staircase." Can anyone do the 'shopping for us?

ADDED: Chip Ahoy provides the Photoshop:

Is it wrong to imagine that that's what certain commenters look like?

traditionalguy said...

Looks like David traveled back on the slow cruise on Crystal Cruise lines.

Bissage said...

On the upside, David's hands are no longer too big.

PatCA said...

Oh, isn't America crappy, LOL LOL LOL?

God DAMN America!

Obesity-induced penis shrinkage is a pretty serious problem; it is not something to "ha ha" about.

mcg said...

It's not just the U.S.

bearbee said...

Ha, ha, ha. But shouldn't there be 'American' and 'stereotype' tags

What's David hiding in his left hand? McD or Burger King?

Nude descending in heels

Jeremy said...

How much did Palladian get to pose?

Bissage said...

You 404ed on that link, bearbee.

Can you do it again?

I'm dying of curiosity here and teh Googles, she does nothing!

Tibore said...

Okay. Fess up. Who around here looks like that?

:D

Tibore said...

LOL, I forgot to clarify: I'm looking for folks to confess about themselves! Not to nominate others. I, for example, am exempt. I'm cut like Adonis. :D




... Who's laughing?? Who's laughing??!! Who said "Yeah, right??"

I had no prob connecting with the original link. Hope this works If not the URL is:

http://davidvanwert.com/wp-content/uploads/nude_descending.jpg

mcg said...

It's still not working. It's odd, but perhaps it is due to the fact that you're linking directly to the picture instead of to the surrounding page, but when I call that up the picture is absent too.

Bissage said...

Thanks, bearbee. Funny stuff!

Henry said...

For whatever reason, you have to use MSIE.

mcg said...

Oh well, I'm not firing up a VM to look at a damn JPEG :)

AlphaLiberal said...

Looks like David's been eating fast food and playing vid games!

Thanks for the chuckle!

Timothy Greenfield has done a coffee table book of classical nudes with porn stars posing as the classical nudes.
Check HBO for more ;)

mcg said...

Ah, the picture came up this time for some reason, bearbee. Funny!

TitusisArriving said...

I do not find this funny.

I just finished reading the Omnivore's Dilemma.

Do any of you really know how your food gets from Point A to Point B.

This is so important.

As someone who is thin and gorgeous and have to inhabit this earth with fatties it is just rude.

I am flying tomorrow and chances are someone else's fat will be infringing upon my space. That's just wrong.

I will be arriving in Madison tomrrow, what time will you be receiving me Althouse? And don't go all hog wild on an expensive gift. Something tasteful and minimal will be just fine. I am also well aware you can't buy couture in Madison so I don't expect too much.

And Newt is fabulous. I love him. He needs to run. He is a man of ideas. A family man.

Newt 2012.

TitusisArriving said...

Today is also a very emotional day for the rare clumbers and I.

I will be leaving them tomorrow and they know it.

They will be staying with the neighbors but they are very hurt.

There is much cuddling, holding, spooning and kissing going on at this moment.

bearbee said...

Hammer gold lame' fat pants for David.

Tom said...

Ann

funny, but you are behind the times on this one. David in America was circulating on the internet several years ago - I posted it on my blog about two years ago.

PatCA said...

"Ha, ha, ha. But shouldn't there be 'American' and 'stereotype' tags?"

Amen.

Bissage said...

Thanks for that, Tom. I was betting that you’re better so I just won $20.

Will said...

The post is missing the "lame" tag.
Oh, ho, ho, ho, Americans are fat and it's the fault of evil corporations! Edgy! Provocative!

Ann Althouse said...

1. I knew it was a little old, but I posted in the hope of getting the requested Photoshop.

2. Titus, I already told you when I was going to be in Madison, and you failed to coordinate with me. Let's keep one thing clear: I am the diva.

Ann Althouse said...

"I posted it on my blog about two years ago" + "Profile not available" = lameness

Palladian said...

I may have posed for the body, but Gene "Jeremy" Olson was the model for Adam's teeny tiny dick.

TitusisArriving said...

Well I have never.

I had to come this week. It was the only week I could come.

Get your pussy back to Madison now Mary.
