23. You'd enjoy one of my relatives.
A nephew - he and the wife both lost their jobs and have had a lot of trouble getting new one. They are really good people in the $45 grand a year household range. They are going to be forced to declare bankruptcy and are desperately trying to wait until one of them gets a job so they can qualify for Chapter 13 rather than 7. The reason? They do not want to lose the Nascar commemorative plate collection they've spent a lifetime building and think it will be worth enough to pay for retirement when the time comes.

7. Is JTP still reporting from Gaza?
I lost track of his doings somewhere between the recording contract, the book authorship and tour, and the journalism gig. Has he become a surgeon or something by now? Or maybe he'll get a plumbing license.

Limbaugh, Palin, and Joe the Plumber. That's quite a leadership team the Republicans have now.

11. Perfect for hanging right above the crapper.
Actually, that is exactly what that painting looks like Sam The Sham is doing, copping a squat in his drawers.


He looks like he might need more fiber in his steady diet of eating Republic bullshit.

19. Sorry, I've almost become immune to the effect ...
...that image can have on people the first time they see it.

I do normally keep it shielded from view and isolated from the rest of my art collection.

Opening that on Christmas morning is legitimate grounds for doing bodily harm with a chainsaw and sulphuric acid.




One can always use another dartboard, I guess.

18. If only Joe were sitting on a toilet . . .
this painting would be perfect. Even as is, it is a definite candidate for The Museum of Bad Art.

20. Art historical reference
Obviously the work is inspired by Rodin's "Thinker". Only in TJ is it possible to have a fucking EDITION of 1000 PAINTINGS! Damn, he must work fast. :puke: :banghead: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:
