    ha. that is fantastic. It reminds me of that funny Sarah Palin Oval Office website that YOhio linked back on cougarguard.

    I noticed that the 2 characters with no explanations....Satan and Businesswoman. Speaks volumes.

    Also, LOL @ ashamed Supreme Court Judge, with watch that reads 11:59.

    I liked the college professor and Mr. Hollywood. Also, Ronald Reagan. This guy is a nutbar.

    Also great is the line about some of the stars (states) shining brighter than others.

    This guy adores Cleon Skousen so that should tell us all we need to know.

    We saw this in the mcnaughton gallery at the Provo mall last week. Why is the poor pregnant woman sitting with the evil side? Multiply and replenish.


    Also, where is MLK in this list of great americans that include Farmer, College Student and the creator of breakfast pastries.

    also, there was no mention of Sally Helms when I scrolled over Thomas Jefferson's image. Although he was holding a phallus-like object......

    I think they must have inadvertently included JFK, a known Democrat.

    Is that a college professor? I thought it was Alton Brown.

    The soldier's name is King, and he replaces the likeness of MLK that was planned. Use of MLK's likeness is closely controlled according to the "artist".

    Good catch. I didn't use the scrolly deal well enough.

    I think I want to vomit. This is far worse than that other cinzy lds artist's depiction of Christ's second coming. "Symbolism" and interpretation aside, this is really bad art.

    Have close look at the court cases the Supreme Court justice has dropped. This guy is actually attacking Marbury v. Madison because he thinks it opened the door for activist judges to revise the constitution. Stick to things you know, pal. Play Dough for example.

    I'm glad he included Davy Crocket- King of the Wild Frontier. Also, Emperor Palpatine is probably my favorite character from Star Wars, so I'm glad he got a shout out, too.

    Skousenites think that MLK was a communist.

    Yeah, like Jesus would really let some kid touch the Constitution. Those things are worth like a million bucks.

    This painting is like a super conservative Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. I keep scrolling around the sea of faces hoping to catch a glimpse of Aleister Crowley and Lenny Bruce. Or maybe Glenn Beck wearing a striped sweater that says "Welcome Mormon Tabernacle Choir, Good Guys"

    In fact, the college student is holding his book.

    Where is Anthony Kiedis? Why is there no reference to his sacrilegious pledging of allegiance to the funk, to the United Funk of Funkadelica?

    I never imagined Jesus Christ wearing a logo on his clothes. If I visit Utah one day and see Deseret Book hawking Tree of Life gear, I'm seriously out. Done.

    MLF got his recognition vicariously through the African-American soldier.

    Yikes is right! Elder Christensen looks just like John Beck.

    Agreed. He is easily my favorite inclusion in this painting. Handicapped Child is a close second.

    There are three rules that I live by: never get less than twelve hours sleep; never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city; and never get involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body.
