This is something worth looking at - and perhaps keeping tabs on (who knows? May turn out to be valuable in the future)...

Painting of Nude Bush Removed From Museum

By CARL HARTMAN####WASHINGTON (AP) - A cartoonish painting of President Bush in the nude has been taken down from the wall at the City Museum of Washington. The picture, called ``Man of Leisure, King George,'' adopts the pose of a famous Impressionist painting, Edouard Manet's ``Olympia,'' that scandalized Paris in 1863, and now hangs in the Gare d'Orsay Museum in Paris.

The painting by local artist Kayti Didriksen, shows a caricature of Bush, reclining in the nude on a chaise lounge, his head propped up by pillows.

Instead of the female servant who stands behind Olympia's couch, a man in suit and tie resembling Vice President Dick Cheney stands nearby, holding a cushion with a crown and a miniature oil rig on top of it.

The painting was part of a ``living room art'' show called ``Funky Furniture'' - a variety of painted furniture and other items that were set up in the museum last week.

Especially if you think about this:

...the little oil-rig crown that Herr Cheney is offering - is it for George's regal brow, or his...er...regal rig?

;)

I brought the image up on a computer at school, and the teacher had a fit. Guess there's no such thing as art here, or freedom of speech.

And if it has a gusher, does it mean he's happy?

But I live in Canada. Freedom of speech still exists here, so I talk about Dubya having a gusher when he's happy if I want. :P

No! Don't do that!

We need somewhere to escape to when things get too oppressive here...
