...and emmett, blinko, ronald & bobo make fifteen fourteen*

In homage to Catholic and Mormon reproductive systems worldwide.
(via Dave from Dulamae's fickr page)


Just when I think Dave has posted one too many drunken, flip-off photos of me and I would like to slather superglue all over his mouse, he sends this beauty. Instant forgiveness and state of grace, epiphenita-style (which is to say, peeing your pants while laughing your way to hell). Thank you, Dave. I can't seem to wear the humor out of this one.

*Shit. I miscounted the spawn menagerie. Got lost in a sea of navy blazers, blue prairie print dresses and matching hair forms.
(Epiphenita, you mean they don't have fifteen kids? Only fourteen? What a bunch of procreating failures.) Is the urge to toss a bucket of blood vat of cherry jello on this righteous pile of homogeneity SO wrong? I mean, just to bring some warm tones into the photo? I think not.

holy shit, i saw that via we-make-money-not-art.com. i actually measured how high 2'9" was on the wall of my room. then i realized that an average american male could (figuratively) give birth to the full-grown romeo dev while standing up. that is one compact body builder.

the previous reference to male parturition was an attempt to maintain thematic consistency. it was completely subconscious. i'm lining my imaginary children up in neat little rows now...

Clown car!!!!!!!! Hoot!

I'll be the one wearing gasoline underpants in the gleefully Retired Irish Catholic section of Hell. Look for me.

Epiphenita~I beg you to understand that you need to update. I click every day. Every day I see the clowns, umm, er, children. But, you see, it's gone from my giggling, to analyzing, to revulsion, to inspiration. I don't have the budget for 13, 14, 15, ....117 children! Post something! Please, I beg you.

okay, okay. but the clown car metaphor still makes me giggle. perhaps partly because my ovaries have passed over into the reproductive wastelands/ova no va/period purgatory and have no power over me anymore.

more to come!!
