UPDATE: This Exists and a Challenge!

Wonkette

Lordy, you can buy a copy for just shy of $4k, but being thrifty Scissorheads I know we can do better. After all, MPS is not known for being the Home of the Internet’s Band of Incorrigible Spitballers ® for nothing. (Did I get the right number of double-negatives?)

Photoshoppers: you know what to do (make your own version and put a link to it in the comments to amuse and amaze us all).

UPDATE 1: OK, it is a copyrighted work of art, so let’s change the challenge: Present your interpretation of Breitbart in the Great Hereafter, or as I like to think of it, Pricks in Purgatory. 18-inch arm is optional.

UPDATE 2: Hello Wonketeers! Thanks for stopping by, but the person you should be visiting who noticed the similarity is DCMartin at the infamous blog Pass the Douchey’s On The Right-Hand Side. (She should be on your radar, regardless.) I want to give credit where it is due. — Tengrain

(Wonkette, which has a very funny art critic analysis of this thing.)

    Isn’t this being a bit optimistic as to where he ended up? By the way, what’s with the face peel? Does that come standard with the trip to heaven or is it only available in first class?

    Am I wrong or does he buckle his belts on the wrong side–like a girl?

  4. Someone at LGM has tracked down the original, which is, of course, subject to copyright. What is with wingnuts and using copyrighted materials without permission? They seem to feel…well, entitled is a pretty good word for it.

    Ralph, you will be interested to know that the original is flipped, so the belt is on the other side. I mean, on the actual legal artwork.

    zombie rotten mcdonald, thanks for the info. But I’m still spreading the rumor that Brietbart is a sissy and his mother dressed him funny.

    Well, I hate to violate Godwin’s Law, but that up there reminds me of that famous painting of Adolph Hitler as a White Knight.

    I wonder if Mr. Copyrighted Artwork bothered to get permission from Ubisoft and the creators of Assasin’s Creed before he plagiarized their armour design?

    DC Martin, you’re right. It looks as though parts of the image were literally copied from the Assassin’s Creed artwork.

    I found this on the artist’s own website:
    “My art is a photo manipulation or photo “chopping”. I take bits and pieces of photographs, combine them, and render them into something new. I mainly focus on political satire but I do not limit myself to politics. If you see anything you like and would like to purchase a print, t-shrt or just abou anything else with a print on it, visit my Zazzle site (link above). If you don’t see the product you want, let me know and I’ll make it available for you on Zazzle.”

    “Chop” away, folks….this dude is a hack.

    And WTF is THIS???

    I did this one because TBogg promised chips and hot sauce.

    I think the original might be a copyrighted photo so if I win they can sue me for the hot sauce but I’m keeping the chips.

    So the douche-‘arist’ admits to taking ‘Inspiration'(Copy-pasta) from multitudes of different places and of different concepts and artworks, AND THAT THAT he fucking goes on to say how he wants to make money off of slapping a bunch of things together and calling the ‘Result’ His own work? Making money off of others art? Yea, I’d rather hope he gets sued and jailtime.

      Mounce –

      Welcome to MPS, it is good to have you with us.

      Yes, indeed. I’m a big fan of sampling, but I’m not so keen on outright theft and then selling it. I think that is called fencing, but I’m only guessing.

      Rgds,
