Columbus Day history lesson

Hey Serf - Amerigo Vespucci and Christopher Columbus were not the same person. We celebrate the achievements of the latter today.

If you call the genocide of an entire people an achievement. And I am 100% Italian.

check out the bare breasted woman in the upper right corner of the poster.

That woman is from Botticelli's "Birth of Venus."

The model for Amerigo Vespucci is Bo Dietl...Constance DelVecchio Maltese, Serf's wife, had all Serf's friends pose for a series of portraits...The piece de resistance was Serf posing for the Columbus portrait.

Oh, George, I fear you are not joking...

"looks more like Paris Hilton."
These anonymous art critics are tough, they're willing to roast even the most famous Renaissance artworks!

is this a slavish reproduction (photocopy, etc) of the Botticelli original or merely an artist's re-rendering of it?

I forgot the quotation marks: "piece de resistance" (I was joking)...Have you ever seen this Serf/Columbus portrait?...It's a hoot in hell...BTW, whenever, Serf (along with his fellow pols) publishes in the weeklies their periodic "Have a Nice Groundhog Day" greetings, he submits a photo of himself together with Constance, with this her Columbus portrait printed on a plate, giving it to the late Pope John Paul II (I kid you not.)...You should see the look on the Pope's face: "What the fuck is this?"...Check it out next time.

this latest critic is even tougher. At least Serf's wife can paint. I doubt any of these anonymous posters have the talent to match her.

:) :( :-o

there you go. Portraits of a smiling face, a frowning one, and a suprised one. And there you were saying I lacked talent. Really!
