In the dunes, in the dunes

June 30, 2017

(Warning: Another underwear ad, with a sexual text.)

The main image from today’s Daily Jocks sale ad, with a parody text from me, set in Fire Island Pines:

In the Pines

My guy, my guy, don’t lie to me
Tell me me where did you screw last night

  (#1)

In the dunes, in the dunes
On the sand, under the moon
We would screw the whole night through

Making fun of Batman

June 11, 2017

Two Batman cartoons have just come to me. Passed on by Chris Hansen, this uncaptioned (and unsourced) cartoon:

(#1)

Batman at a bustop with four old women: what to make of the scene?

And in today’s comics feed, this Bizarro:

(#2)

(If you’re puzzled by the odd symbols in the cartoon — Dan Piraro says there are 13 in this strip! — see this Page.)

This is not a President

June 3, 2017

Passed on by Adam Schembri on Facebook, this topical parody of Magritte’s The Betrayal of Images (Ceci n’est pas une pipe):

Is that a Paschal Peep in your pouch?

April 24, 2017

From Chris Hansen on Facebook, a late entry in this year’s Easter Peepstakes: a model who dreamt he played with yellow Peeps in his Aronik swimwear:

About the company, its products, its models, its symbol, and its name

Seward Johnson

November 7, 2016

It looks like the bots at Pinterest are doing a pretty good job. Thanks to my having posted, in “Giantess Jackie” on the 2nd, a bit about Seward Johnson’s “Forever Marilyn” statue in Chicago, this morning Pinterest offered me a page of “New ideas for you in Sculpture”, entirely devoted to Johnson’s bronze oeuvre, for example this visual parody of Grant Wood’s “American Gothic”, entitled “God Bless America” (now in Florida):

November 7th, in the liminal zone

November 7, 2016

Twilight Dawn in America

Between the dark and the daylight,
Between the end of Daylight Time and Election Day,
When the light is beginning to fade,
Comes a pause in the year’s occupation
That is known as Revolution and Solidarity Day,
Or, take your pick, Freedom Fighters Killing Day.

November 7th in America. We can be pleased that today’s birthdays include Marie Curie and Joan Sutherland. But then there’s the former national holiday of Bangladesh, a sad story of rebellion and ensuing dictatorship in a dreadfully beleagured country. And of course the terrible story of one of today’s saints, Ernest of Zwiefalten, disemboweled in the wars between Christianity and Islam, for God and territory (in roughly equal measure), over 800 years ago. A bloody awful day, in several senses.

… and his fruit was sweet to my taste

October 16, 2016

A return, after several years, to posting my collages on this blog and on AZBlogX (depending on their X-ratings). Two inaugural postings: one already on my X blog with five collages in the Bangers & Mash series, now one on this blog with two Sausage Tree collages (high phallicity, no actual phalluses):

(#1)

(#2)
