14. Yes, that was great. I posted this because he shows how the shadows were put in

with Photoshop and that everything about the image is a fraud.

6. IMO it was all a set up from the beginning. Just an excuse for a rich donor to give him $100k. nt

7. Juanita Jean also commented on this "artwork" my Zimmerman

Just when you think you’ve seen enough creepy crap to last a lifetime, along comes George Zimmerman (yeah, that guy) and blows the bottom outta creepy.

He selling his “art” on Ebay.

And some dandy art it is. It’s kinda decoupage meets rubber stamps. Kinda Martha Stewart on crack.

As the official art critic for The World’s Most Dangerous Beauty Salon, Inc., I would like to add that he does get extra points for irony with that whole “and justice for all” stuff.

9. Classic. However...

Looks as though the $110,000 bid has been withdrawn...

Wonder how long before they're all gone, and Zimbo the Clown is left alone with his DMCA lawsuit?

12. The comments on eBay have gotten even more entertaining!

Q: A true winner is someone that figures out how to make lemmon aide from lemmons. I contributed to your legal defense fund. I am truly sorry our government run liberal media and justice department persecuted you they way they did. Dec-17-13
A: God Bless you. You have nothing to apologize to me for. The system is broken, an innocent man should not spend one second without his God given liberty, solely because a small sect of uneducated loud mouths. We must fix it. If we can't fix it together, then we owe many people a sincere apology. Your Friend,

Somehow I don't think Jack would appreciate the typo!


Q: Will Mark O'Meara receive any proceeds from the sale of this painting? Dec-17-13
A: No.

Yeah, he already got his dirty money.

Q: Awesome George!!! Great painting - wish I could afford it Kudos to you man! Your resilience is astonishing and inspirational! Dec-17-13
A: Thank you for your continued support! I have received an overwhelming number of request for less expensive pieces and donated pieces and I am exploring options. Thanks for your patience. I am, as you know, new at this Your Friend, GZ @therealgeorgez

Oh, Jesus. How long before his 1-man show at Liberty University??

Q: We all think a lot of you Zimm and hope the best for you!I may bid on your painting at the last min.How will you ship the picture,can it be picked up local?I would be driving from Arkansas Dec-17-13
A: The price it is at now has well exceeded my $.99 minimum; therefore, whoever wins within the Continental United States, will receive this painting delivered by me personally. Your friend,

Attention, Buyer. You might want to be packing, just in case.

15. I love the 3 minute mark, where he fades between the "original painting" and Getty's graphic.

Too good.
