Naked Man Going Home

One of the most revered works of art in the world, Michelangelo's David, is going home.

After a two-year visit in the United States, David will return to his native Italy.  The move has caused quite a stir among U.S. trade protectionists who are up in arms over unfair and unequal shipping rates.  It seems it is costing twice as much to ship the statue home as it did to get it here, and they want to know why.

Sponsors for the visit include:


  1. you sir, are a genius. This made me cringe.

  2. David managed to keep his weight down for 500 years, 2 years on the fast food circuit, look at him. Goliath would whip him real good.

  3. Quite possibly the funniest post I've read all year. And actually, it does get me thinking. I don't understand how the ancients stayed so thin, as we can see from the statues. How did they resist Sausage and Egg McMuffins in the morning?

  4. JenJen... that's what I keep telling everybody, but they don't believe me.

    Holte... you shoud see Goliath!

    Mo... the ancients, re: Ethiopia, Sudan, Somalia, Dafur... they've managed it by starvation.

  5. C, I think there is a serious mistake being made here. After checking with several of my colleagues from my museum days, I have been told that the photo is actually one of a recently commissioned sculpture of Rush Limbaugh. It is scheduled to go on view at the Alaskan Museum of Corpulent Prevaricators in August, 2012. It is part of a trilogy which includes, Limbaugh, Pope Benedict XVI, and of course an old favorite, Newt Gingrich. Just thought I'd clear that up.

  6. Dang, that make sense to me JJ. August 2012?? Oh shit!

  7. I'm surprised they missed an opportunity for product placement, he should be holding a Big Mac and Burger King fries in one hand and a Starbucks cup in the other. Another good one dude!

  8. Aaaah yes. The good 'ole US of A. Home of lard. It's a shame, you know, to have this reputation. But it's well deserved.

  9. Somebody,
    Somehow is
    pissed off at this post.

    I, me, me, mine, think it is a gas.
    BTW. I would not stand in back of that fat daddie!
