    The hot dog vs. condiments one is one of my favorites. So's the lobster on the beach. The mussels are dancing away, unaware that the lemon is running at them with a cocktail fork.

    I wasn't especially happy with the baby's face either. Too small for the body and looks more like a toddler. Some of my co-workers were a little weirded out by it too.

      I tried to be gentle with them, but hey did still break sometimes. They never flat-out shattered though.

        Wow, very nice display boards, Virgo. I like the lobster barkeep.

            We have some US-Colonial-era paintings in the STL Art Museum that are horrifying.
            This post is brought to you by the letter E and the number 9. Those are the buttons I push to get a Twix out of the candy machine.

              There is some seriously f-ed up shit in that collection. Like, I get paintings of mothers breast-feeding their babes, but holy fountain of lactation on some of those!

                Stuff like this is what I use as evidence to counter any sentiment that "things were better back when…"

                  And here I was about to click that link at work. I'm always paranoid that IT is watching me secretly. Don't know how they'd feel about a holy fountain of lactation.

                    Unsure if it is really all that NSFW.

                    Just about every thing on that link is in a reputable museum--or Catholic Church.

                      I dunno. Several streams of white stuff emanating from one exposed nipple into the mouths of a bunch of surrounding miniature men?

                        I just started looking at this now that I'm home from work. I'm actually really glad I didn't check it out at work. I know it's art, but my desk isn't really that private, and the swan rape would lead to even more awkward questions than the fountain of lactation.

                          Actually I'm really glad that I wasn't looking at this at work. I'm literally crying from the laughter. Thank you so much seamas!

                            Imagine looking at that stuff when in church?
