Shocker? Pucker up? Oh, the possibilities.

Ol' Brown Eyes is back. Photo mosaic of POTUS. NSFW if someone's standing in your cubicle looking over your shoulder, but from a distance it's relatively innocuous.

All politics aside, that is disgusting.

So many questions, none of which I want answered.

Umm.. yeah... that's, umm... gross.

I don't like the President, that doesn't mean I like, you know, staring at several thousand puckered assholes.

The moral of the story is: Celebrate diversity.

I recognize one of the pieces of that mosaic! Brings back fond memories. (You never call any more, Mary!)

On afterthought: just to clarify, I'm not saying that being gross means it shouldn't be posted; as someone who supported the artistic merit of Sensation I'm not going to be a hypocrite and say that gross=not art, but I'm just voicing what I think is a significant (and bipartisan) opinion here: this is really unpleasant to look at.

This is a photomosaic. Of rectums. We're looking at pictures of rectums. Including closeups of rectums.

(I should have given credit where credit is due.)

Nevertheless, an important piece of artwork.

"So, whatcha been up to, Barry?"

"Eh, taking pictures of my friends' assholes so that I can make a collage of the president."

"Wow. Sounds like tedious work."

"'Tain't."

Personally, I'm just relieved that they're puckered.

Man, you should not get offended at a picture of an asshole, you should get offended that our president is an asshole.

The asshole is a natural thing and has inherent beauty because it is a manifestation of the infinite complexity of nature's marvelous design. And some girls will let ya... you know.

Hey, here is a picture of an asshole:

two dumbasses with hugely oversized earphones take turns uttering moronic babble and describing the action on the field.

moron 1: whoa! did you see that, stitch?!
moron 2: incredible, brad! let's watch quonsar's comment on instant replay!

Wouldn't this have been more appropriate if it was both Dubya and Pootie-Poot?

Well, that certainly convinces me that Bush's politics are wrong.

Next: transcripts of Bush's press conferences, painstakingly rendered by shaping logs of crap into letters.

It's not a rectum, it's an anus. There's a difference, you know. I suppose you call vulvas "vaginas", too.

Are they truly unique pics or are there some with color adjusted in Photo Shop?

Thankfully, they all appear to be of the female persuasion.. :)
posted by eas98 at 8:20 AM on September 11, 2003


Just to be contrarian...

ColdChef, I doubt any of these are the artist's friends'. There's a secret place you can find a buttload of photos like this.

eas98, how can you tell?

And emelenjr, "an important piece of artwork" is, um, stretching it (ewww). This is a cute (in concept, anyway) multimedia political cartoon, but not nearly as cute or as important as this one (from homunculus a couple threads up).

Sphincters are ugly? OK, well perhaps they aren't the nicest parts of the body. But then again, all the orifices tend to look a bit gross if scrutinized, up close, in minute detail.

I tend to think mouths are far worse, if only for the things that tend to come out of them - words.

That, in turn, brings up Frank Zappa's immortal question:

"What's the ugliest part of your body."

On that count, I find the collage of George W. Bush - made from thousands of tiny pictures of sphincters - to be very appropriate.

eas98, how can you tell?

Too pink, unhairy, and on many of them, you can almost see the rest of her goodies.. :)

Some of them are definitely duplicated in the mosaic. I do wonder how many of them are unique, though..
posted by eas98 at 9:25 AM on September 11, 2003


This is an insult to all of those fine anuses. . .

eas98, I defer to your judgment as a true connoisseur. But that bolsters my point about them not being from his friends, doesn't it?

"You wanna do what?"

"Come on! It's for a good cause!"
