Obama Auction: Fine Art

Back in the days, before "photoshop" was a verb, before any of us had digital cameras, and phones were use mostly just for talking, there were places you could go to get your head digitally attached to other things.

One fine evening, many many years ago, Mrs G&T, Mitch and, I think, the ex-future-Mrs-Mitch and I stumbled upon such a place on third street in Santa Monica.

Of the many Star Trek and X-files and Playboy paraphernalia available to slap my head onto, for some reason, I selected Michelangelo.

Sistine Chapel, to be precise. My head, the body of Adam, the finger of God.

Some of you have seen it. Some of you have had copies. But now, you have the opportunity to own the framed original.



Sealed in a glass frame with a tasteful matte border, this little treasure can be yours if you are the top bidder. The photo above shows only about 1/4 of the image.

And yes, in case you are wondering, the full image does feature full frontal male nudity.

To see the whole thing, you must win the auction and be the highest bidder.

I am making this sacrifice for Obama, so it's up to you to bid. Buy my humiliation and send Obama to the White House!

This auction ends Monday night at 11:00 PM (PST).

  8. Oh, right on Lois!

    Now we need a counter offer from Oosje, and we'll have a bidding war between my mother-in-law and my former-future-mother-in-law!

    I love the Lounge!
