ANYONE UP FOR A ROUSING GAME OF FLYING BUNGHOLE?

One Nation, Under a New Obama Salute (Paul Bedard, 8/07/08, US News)

George Bush had his three-fingered W salute that supporters flashed when greeting him at presidential campaign events in 2000. And now, if a Los Angeles creative agency gets its way, Sen. Barack Obama will see fans meet him with his own salute like the one above. "Our goal is to see a crowd of 75,000 people at Obama's nomination speech holding their hands above their heads, fingers laced together in support of a new direction for this country, a renewed hope, and acceptance of responsibility for our future," says Rick Husong, owner of The Loyalty Inc. Husong tells me that he got the idea after seeing the famous Obama-Progress poster by artist Shepherd Fairey.


Cult? What cult?

Ridiculous. What's with all the Commie preferences in the Obama campaign? McCain's got this wrapped up - if it went poster to poster, I'd have a poster with airplane art girl (in bikini of course), holding a can of his wife's beer, and four leaf clovers on either side of McCain's name - Slogan - "America!"

What's next? Armbands with the The Oneā„¢'s campaign logo on it?

What's next, you ask? A song or a poem, to be sure. Or a moment of silence before each appearance.

What!? I saw this somewhere and chuckled at what I thought was a photoshopped joke. With the self-love this guy exhibits, they should go with just one hand.

You know, I try as hard as I can to avoid doing that.

Chuckled? You are to be commended for your restraint. Personally, I laughed my *** off.

It looks like a big zero to me...

That was my reaction too: "Wait, this is real? Haw haw haw!"
The Stalinist art style coupled with the gesture last seen being performed by Ginger Lynn is just messing with my head.

For my generation it bears a striking and unsettling similarity to "goatse". Surely this is a fake?

From a quick look at google, goatse appears to be a techno version of the "flying bunghole," without the punching.

Subliminal mohammedan crescent in there, too. :-)
