I have nothing against art on LSD blotters, but putting Obama’s face everywhere is getting plain creepy.

Instead keep playing that one note whoah it tastes like a laser show.

rewording parody of mcnaughtons one nation under god samples christian minister black soldier christa mcaullife

Rewording of Jon McNaughton’s One Nation Under God

This is another parody of Utah artist Jon McNaughton’s creepy painting with a theocratic vibe. We get a thorough rewrite of the original’s explanations of the motif, with the nice JavaScript scroller and all. I keep my own backup copies of the original and this parody.

I recently discovered a less subtle, Cthulhu themed parody of the painting as well.

mcnaughton fine art one nation under god parody jesus as cthulhu with blood and monsters

One Nation Under Cthulhu McNaughton parody

The picture (origin unknown) delivers Lovecraft-inspired parody of a “One Nation Under God” themed painting that has floated around the Internet for some time.

To fully grasp the madness of this work, read the original’s very elaborate explanations and feel that theocratic rage scare the shit out of you (Backup copy). Yeah, these people are allowed to vote.

EDIT: Found another parody.

trinity_watches_neo_get_arrested_within_dream_orb_rear-view_mirror_the_matrix_16m_50s_lowres

Sixteen minutes and fifty seconds into the movie: Trinity watches a still sleeping Neo get arrested. She doesn’t see Neo’s dream directly, but through the round rear-view mirror on her motor bike. The little dream orb is another world of sorts within The Matrix.

Everyone should watch this film properly intoxicated at least once.
