"" bshawise: Dumbfounded

Friday, July 17, 2009


I've seen some irresponsible things in my life. Like, Ohio parents not hugging their children enough and forcing their sweet, innocent offspring to seek attention in unhealthy, pathetic ways like wearing a Michigan jersey to school on the Friday before the big November game. But this painting is the SINGLE MOST IRRESPONSIBLE thing I've ever seen. Why not have paintings that celebrate poisonous snakes as friendly bellydancers. Or how about a nice oil rendering of cherubic babies playing paddycake on I-75. Bears doing the dosey doe in your living room? This is what you walk past every day? What's next, warnings from Larry Handley and Derrick Beasley that tornadoes are coming over from Kansas for hugs and tea? We might as well teach our kids how to smoke crack. That makes as much sense as teaching them that freaking bears lounge around on Sunday afternoons doing nothing except for an occasional hoe down. I'm at a loss for words.

You should add a couple of clown hats with your Photoshopy expertise and put it up at V.C.C. as a circus side show sign: "Dave and Joe: The Amazing Square Dancing Bears".

when you're a cream belt, this image is hardly frightening. i think you should consider getting certified.
