Corky sent me something to look at. As a lot of tipsters know I am very skeptical of everything that is sent in. I have to be, it’s the correct default position as an editor and for someone that is accused of peddling in “fake news” on a daily basis.
Sperm on Obama’s head in a portrait hanging in the National Portrait gallery??? NO. That’s ridiculous. Let me take a loo….
Yep. That’s sperm.
What I thought was a vein on Obama’s temple, upon further examination, is not a vein. Close.
Art is sometimes very symbolic. Sperm on his temple makes sense because sperm IS Obama’s temple.
What sealed the deal for me is that the artist seems to put a lot of sperm depictions in his art.
So we have an historic first for the national portrait gallery, unless, of course, you count Nelson Shanks sneaking a reference to Monica’s blue dress into his portrait of Bill Clinton.
Shank’s said the shadow being cast on the mantel is Monica’s blue dress, making it the first reference to sperm in a presidential National Portrait.
Can I resubmit my submission for Obama’s national portrait?
