OH lord. Ever conjure up in your brain a right-wing ludicrous animatronics wax-museum funhouse?

The great Aphrodite by Phidias
Once shocked the ultra-fastidious
Til certain old aunties
Then dressed her in panties
Which made her look perfectly hideous

My “Child’s Book of Scurrilous Verse” had an amusing little drawing that went with this…

I read it in 5th grade, because I wanted to see what all the fuss was about.  Wasn’t my idea of a good read, but I got through the whole thing.  Never felt the urge to reread it.

Well, not much doubt about what the church wanted the artist to represent her as.  There’s some bonkers renaisssence stuff in Italy too: the blessed virgin Mary (with holy child) with a breast out, expressing milk.  Of course, it shoots right up into the sky and becomes the stars. 

Don’t paint under the influence of ergot, guys.

“Two walking baths, two weeping motions,
Portable and compendious oceans.”

There’s an interesting intersection of hypothesis between the influence of dangerous drugs (deliberately ingested or not) and really bad judgment/self-editing sometimes. Sometimes one has to wonder if the loopiest drugs aren’t of endogenous origin.

Hi there! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when viewing from my iphone 4. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to fix this issue. If you have any recommendations, please share. With thanks!
