POP POP

April 24, 2018

Yesterday’s Zippy had a nutjob in a diner ranting:

Are you trying to lure me into a lexicographical, self-contradicting black hole of word play so heinous it defies logic?

And today, embedded within a thick matrix of allusions pointing in many directions:

a lexicographical, self-contradicting vortex so heinous, it defies Robert Mueller

Deviant Last Suppers

March 28, 2018

Tomorrow is Maundy Thursday, commemorating the Last Supper (of Jesus and his apostles) in Christian tradition, most famously represented in a late 15th century mural painting by Leonardo da Vinci — a painting often parodied, in playful, pointed, and deliberately sacrilegious ways. Including many turning on gender and sexuality. For instance, this 2017 Italian gay male version:

Fifty shades and the Justice League

March 21, 2018

(Gay porn in several media, some featuring BDSM and other fetishes. Use your judgment.)

Annals of parodies and puns on titles, with a gay slant: Fifty Shades of Grey (the books and the movie), Justice League (the movie).

The further adventures of Dick Danger

March 9, 2018

(About two gay porn flicks from TitanMen, with over-the-top ad copy in street language mixed with arch double entendres. Plus hairy beefy musclehunks just short of the X-line. Not for kids or the sexually modest.)

It starts with an ad today for an upcoming mansexfest (to be released on April 16th):

Son of Snowman

Today’s Rhymes With Orange takes another swipe at Magritte’s The Son of Man:

  (#1)
This is mildly entertaining as a joke about some kid who makes weird, non-standard snowmen. But for it to fully work you need to know that Magritte was a surrealist painter, the creator of The Son of Man (crucially featuring the bowler hat and the green apple):

Superhero supper

November 22, 2017

This morning I stumbled on an odd vein of art: superhero parodies of the Last Supper. Two examples:

(#1) by Michael Kozlov; note Thanksgiving turkey

(#2) by Luis M. Hernandez

The intersection of two genres, both of them substantial: art works in which superheroes are assembled in a group; and parodies of Leonardo’s Last Supper.

Singing in parts

November 17, 2017

Two cartoons, one (a Galley Slave cartoon by Christopher Weyant in the New Yorker of 5/14/01), explicitly about four-part harmony; and one (today’s Zippy) alluding to the Ink Spots and so to their silky four-part harmonies:

The Pink Fellowship

November 3, 2017

(Men from the Pink Fellowship, in very skimpy underwear; racy language. Use your judgment.)

(#1) thong

Nights with pink pouches
Never reaching the end
Offers they’ve flaunted
Never willing to send

Knights with pink pouches
Famous cock teases
Offer their assets
Won’t close the deals
