Disturbing Nativity Scene 1.5: The Nuclear Family




I actually find the striking colors of this one more alarming. Just the little family, all alone, before the wise men got to the end of their Mapquest page, and before they would know the joy of worshipping the pig-in-a-blanket messiah.

    Mel, to answer your question on the price: This one is $45. I couldn't find a price for the big one. I'm guessing at least $100, right?

    As original art goes, not very expensive. Except for this art.

    Who is the third....uh....large figure? One shepherd? I don't see any sheep. An angel? I don't think so. Did the innkeeper bring out some extra towels? This is just weird.

    That's annoying Uncle Lenny. Has been sleeping on Joseph and Mary's couch since he lost his job at the frankincense factory.

    He just HAD to tag along to get in the photos.

    There's one in every family, isn't there? Except ours, of course.

    Oh wait. Upon closer inspection, I think I do see something that is supposed to be a halo and what might be part of a wing on that thing in the middle. Must be an angel. Or, Uncle Lenny trying to draw more attention to himself.

    Oh fer...

    I'm doing the wrong kind of art, I guess. *sigh*.

    I didn't think it could get any scarier.
    Ahhhhhh!

    About mummy baby Jesus, I wish I could get you a picture. It's...truly...something.

    Mel, WHAT?????

    You can look at THIS and then at YOUR art and think YOURS is wrong??

    Version 1.0 I liked. This one just looks like three condoms broke and Caspar the sperm-ghost is hovering in the window.

    Domhan. You are a friggin prophet.

    Mel, I don't know what your art looks like, but I can tell from your writing that you are creative, so I know that you actually produce real "art." Not this stuff that looks like crap but people who know nothing about art are fooled into buying because it has a hefty price tag on it--so it must be art, right?

    However, if they are in demand, it would be nothing for you to whip something like that together in your spare time, I am sure. But I'm guessing your conscience probably wouldn't allow you to do that.

    Futuresis, go to Tilting the Void (on my blogroll) to see Mel's art. She's one of them real live arteets.

    I do hope she wears a beret. If she doesn't wear a beret, I'll just die.

    Or, duh, click on her name.

    I.Q. points dropping with each paper graded.

    Isn't it kind of intolerant to make them all look like "pigs" in a blanket, considering that they were all Jewish?

    Very un-kosher.

     
  • At 9:31 PM, Blogger Candy Rant said…

    Very culturally sensitive, Steve. We can only hope that those are turkey-meat weiners.

     
  • At 9:49 PM, Blogger Mel said…

    *snort* beret...

     
  • At 9:52 PM, Blogger Mel said…

    There are no words, really...they do look something like little snausages in tortillas, don't they. Pup-snacks!

     
  • At 10:02 PM, Blogger Candy Rant said…

    Not just snausages. HOLY snausages.

    I agree with Domhan. They all look like little peckers peeking out of their foreskins.

    Very Christmasy.
    Both of you: go to your rooms.

    This one is kind of spooky...you know, Sixth Sense kind of spooky.

    If I don't see baby Jesus' face, I ain't putting it in me 'ouse.

    OOH a present for me to give my husband's ex wife! Sign me up

     
  • At 12:02 PM, Blogger Candy Rant said…

    I think that's a very reasonable criterion, Jerry! He must at least have a face.


    Norma! I already sent you that custom-made box of "cordial" cherries filled with battery acid. I worked really hard on those, you know. I guess I'll send them to my former mother-in-law now. Although I've already shipped her a crate of weasels with dysentery...

    If the Wise Men used MapQuest, they would have ended up in Parsippany, NJ, after making 347 left turns.

     
  • At 5:18 PM, Blogger Candy Rant said…

    Well, ain't Parsippany where it all happened in the first place?

    I think Uncle Lenny is an angel. In addition to the halo, I think little angel Lenny has praying hands? Or it is just a frog closure on his dapper frock.
    Also, little faceless baby Jesus looks a little like an abandoned joint.

    P-O, so you're saying this is a more blunt version of the Christmas story?
