Wednesday Reads: Thankful for this…Posted: November 22, 2017
Our Lady of the Rectal Exam…bend over and say your prayers, these two fingers are miraculous!
I am grateful, and thankful… that in this world of despots and dictators, uh…tRump, I am able to go online and browse through Pinterest to find images from far and wide. ( Cliché I know.) As you can see, it has served me well, I mean…where else would I find so expressive an object as the one above?
We are getting fucked! And it is not by some two fingered Madonna!
But seriously…this is not a joking matter. (I know I am going to hell for that one.)
The free world wide net is able to provide us with the power to find information at our fingertips.
Like the real historical background behind that Virgen con el Nino above…
Translated by my son:
…it is worth mentioning the Romantic carving of the Virgin and Child on the right side of the main altarpiece. Recently restored, it shows a golden polychrome with very warm colors. Maria, with a fine crown, sits seated on a throne, with a very long face and hair hidden under the toque that falls on her shoulders. The neckline of her tunic, slightly triangular, is garnet with golden stencil. Under this tunic he wears another one of darker color, which in the part of the feet shows a succession of very flat folds, under which the typical pointy shoes associate. With one hand he shows himself in an attitude of blessing while with the other he holds the Child who appears seated in the center of the lap. He blesses with his right hand, while holding the Sacred Scriptures with the other hand. He wears a white robe with vertical and horizontal folds, and wears a royal crown. The physical characteristics of both figures are very similar, highlighting the rigidity and seriousness of their faces. This size can be dated at the beginning of the thirteenth century.
Also it must be pointed out, that this statue happens to be from the same town (Actually, I believe it is located in the same church…) that brought you this…monstrosity: Del ‘Ecce Homo’ de Borja a la Virgen Dolorosa de Galdakao. El Correo

Yeah, remember that funny thing we all laughed at, that was shared via the web?
Onward to the cartoons:
Hey, there should also be a no Italians or dogs sign too.
That was a lot of cartoons there….I think this last one is the best of ’em.
This is an open thread. What new horrors will we face today?
