Just what you've always wanted! You can work on it while waiting for a wholesome meal at Cracker Barrel!

14. Oh yeah...the fundies worship this guy...
"His art is so uplifting and positive and pretty!"

My old boss was an incredibly rich lady who went to one of those super-rich megachurches, and she absolutely worshipped this guy and his art.

(She was always kind to me, but definitely a RW republican)

2. Isn't that redundant?
Since -- except for the "highlights" -- even the "originals" are painted by Korean slave labor?

Someday, I'll guess, the Kinkade paint-by-numers sets will be worth more to collectors than the actual Kinkades.

9. Reverse outsourcing, perhaps?
Get little old ladies over here to do them for free as a hobby, and sell them for a brazillion dollars to other little old ladies...it's kinda like a MLM craft-plan.

5. Or you could do it while watching bad "sensual" documentaries.
Mmmm...hairy nipples...

Maybe they should make a documentary about tattooing people with Kinkade art.

11. Ugh...tattooed people get a bad enough rap.
It's bad enough that we have the "sensual" documentary giving us a bad name, but no Kinkade tattoos please. He's not the "painter of light;" he's the "painter of crap."

God, I still can't believe how bad that documentary was.

15. I love 'em...I actually got my first one in February
It's just the outline, I didn't get it colored in because the guy that did it went...umm...back to prison.

And if you know anything about me, the fact that I got tattooed by a convict is really quite hysterical.

17. Haha...I took one of my former HS teachers to get her 1st.
My tattoo artist at the time is a pretty nice guy, but you just kind of have to get used to him. We're unlikely friends, basically. Anyway, I knew he'd have to be on good behavior to tattoo my teacher, so I laid down some rules for him:

1. Do not offer her cocaine.
2. Do not invite her to a threesome.
3. Do not tell her about the hot transexual you banged last week.

He still freaked her out a bit, but he abided by the rules. After she was tattooed and out of there, I told her the rules. She thought it was hysterical, but said she was happy I laid them out for him. Any of those things would have contributed to the anxiety of the tattoo, which she loves very much.

13. Kinkade tattoos! What a concept!
A lovely pastoral scene, a little cottage -- tattooed on your ass.

Someone, somewhere, will do it.

8. Give me any prime number of them.
And make sure your poem rhymes and is in iambic pentameter.
