By all means, its so terrible how artists have uncritically worshipped the current occupant of the Oval Office.


See how the old guy is trying to catch one of Fartbama's farts? It's like he's wafting it into his nostrils, like a fine wine. And all the other old guys are pointing to the homeless person saying, "What about this guy? He needs farts, too!"

So that explains Dubya! He was haunted by two former Presidents with grossly different views on the Constitution and the purpose of government, thereby confusing him and causing him to make such poor decisions as cutting taxes and taking us to war for no apparent reason!

Damn, I almost feel sorry for the guy.

I'm glad I wasn't the only one who immediately thought that. Its like the artist has realized half the truth. If he could only have visualized putting the bongos in the painting, he would have captured the very essence of the Fartbongo.

It's like one of those picture puzzles from Highlights for Children - How many memes can YOU find?


I burst out laughing when I noticed the soldier eating the gay wedding cake. He came to the wedding, so obviously he supports the couple. And he's prepared to fight for them. He just doesn't care for fondant icing.

Hahaha and I just noticed the florescent light bulb. Which obviously means that Obama is against lampshades. Also, I gather that he's against golf.

Yeah, I know about the rollovers available on the artist's website, but a work of art has to stand on its own and he can't control the meanings I derive what he paints. Semiotics, biatches.

Ed Grubermann: tony41454: "My intent was not to compare him to Jesus"

Unlike Jamie Foxx the blasphemer, who DID compare him to God. Apparently Jamie never read this:

"On an appointed day Herod, having put on his royal apparel, took his seat on the rostrum and began delivering an address to them. The people kept crying out, 'The voice of a god and not of a man!'
And immediately an angel of the Lord struck him because he did not give God the glory, and he was eaten by worms and died." (Acts 12:21-23)

Let hope those worms chew fast.

Funny how God hasn't given a wet fart about blasphemy since then.


I actually asked that very question about blasphemy to my childhood pastor years ago (Southern Baptist). He told me that God DOES strike down the wicked blasphemers, but sometimes it takes decades for them to die. But he assured me they suffered the whole time. That's the current belief on the matter.

Clearly I am no longer a religious person.

I don't think this is very good art but if you can't see this as a comment on how Obama's being treated and not who he is you should probably just stick to your Kincade jigsaw puzzles.


One year, my friends and I put together a Kincaid jigsaw puzzle and then pasted pictures culled from porn mags into the scene. It was a vast improvement.

Why would the left want to crucify him when they just relected him? And the Romans were Jesus own party?
