These paintings are ridiculous and gross and funny.

Paintings, by George! (I dont’ know why I just wrote that, but I’m keeping it)
An installation of sheep made from old telephones in Frankfurt. Goat, sheep, I’m on a farm roll.
During an exciting dinner conversation tonight, a friend brought out her iPhone and started showing everyone photos of goats she stumbled across on the internet. She didn’t think they were all that attractive, but I was hooked. To support my opinion, one of these goats recently won the title of “Most Beautiful Goat” in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. To be fair, Saudi Arabia’s not the best example of deeming something beautiful (don’t believe me? Read up on their human rights issues, those smug jerks), but the goats are co0l. They’re called Damascus or Damascene goats.
Goats found through Google image search (of course)

Don’t these look like modern-day versions of old school royalty portraits? The dead animals and sporting outfits are really interesting, too, because they immediately bring to mind death. Creepy.
That’s what he calls himself, I wouldn’t make that up. I saw these in a subway station in Montreal (also the basement of dorms for a University, I think), and they were so funny and kind of out of place, I felt for them.

Yes, you heard me right. How disgusting/amazing are these? Right? No?

Saul Steinberg was a cartoonist for The New Yorker, and Inge Morath was a photographer. When Morath asked to take a portrait of Steinberg, he showed up with a paper bag mask on his face. At least, that’s what Wikipedia says, and we all know Wikipedia doesn’t lie.
