Remember last week when I said there'd be 1 and 1/2 post this week, as I was planning to do 2 posts but one of them was going to suck? Well, guess which post this is???

Oh, and while you're at it you might as well guess which post probably isn't going to show up until next week. I'll give you a hint, it rhymes with "the post that doesn't suck." Apologies, condolences, and etc, but you'll presumably live, and so shall I. Circle of life.

Anyway, this is sort of corollary to the "Fun With Frames" post that I did last week (normally I'd link to that entry, but I feel you're big enough now to scroll 10 inches down my blog's front page on your own). As I mentioned last week, I was able to find 2 mildly acceptable items on my most recent trip to several greater Denver area thrift shops - one of these was the uber-tacky baby frame that I ruined last week, and the other was this fine item that I've yet to do anything with:


If this picture frame had a mouth, it would say "please put an incredibly ironic photograph inside of me, I am begging for that sort of treatment." Kind of a bland statement, but that's how picture frames talk. If they were engaging conversationalists they wouldn't be picture frames at all, but rather desk lamps.

Anyway, I've been trying to think of the perfect picture to put in this thing for the past couple of weeks, but despite the fact that I've come up with quite a few ideas that I'd deem either "good", "acceptable", or "mildly humorous", I've yet to come across that one image that immediately elicits a "YES! That is IT, I am SOOO using that" reaction from me. That's where you (hopefully) come in.

Got any ideas for a good picture to put in this frame? Then lay 'em on me. Feel free to propose ideas from the world of politics, pop culture, sports, history... really, anything and everything is open to consideration here. A few ideas I've come up with, just to get you started (these would be my "funny, but not that funny" concepts):

A Bush family member with one of their Saudi oil magnate buddies, Whitney Houston with an anthropomorphic pile of crack cocaine, Mark Mangino with a novelty sized hamburger, disgraced Senator Larry Craig with a... well, let's not get into that idea, let's just get in to your ideas instead.

Fire away, oh huddled masses.

What about OJ and a pez dispenser?

there are so many here that you can go with.. Bush and Bin Laden, Cheney and anyone from Greenpeace, He-man and Skeletor... or get a little more obscure... Haliburton and The Texas Rangers... OPEC and a polar bear... If you wanted to get a little creepy, put two penises crossed as though in a sword fight. Maybe put a pussy in the background, gaping open as though in surprise, and put character features on all of them. You know, eyes, nose mouth...(boy, I'm pretty fucked up, that's what I am) The mind reels with the possibilities.

You know Shawn, sometimes I worry about your surplus of creativity, though I find great comfort in the fact that if you ever flip out on society you'll undoubtedly do so in an extremely interesting fashion.

How's pelting former Colorado Governor Bill Owens with a handful of your own poop strike you? Doable, or a little too far fetched?

You think you got former governor problems? Come on man, I live in Texas. Just think, we were the proof of concept model for No Child Left Behind. Not to mention that we have one of the largest teen pregnancy rates in the nation right here in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. And then there's all of those little sluts raising their children and teaching them that by finishing the second grade, they have done something remarkable. Well maybe in Bush's mind they have, but I refuse to reward mediocrity. Fuck this "everyone is a winner" shit. If I won the game, you're all losers. Do better next time, and YOU can rub MY face in it.
So back to the point, I have only one life to give for my country (or some other patriotic nonsense that will be remembered, but the source of which will be forgotten), and I have decided to spend it by either teaching people from Texas that shit needs to get better, or failing that, I will start my own religion, and I will call my flock my pets. And you can rest assured that if they keep up the bullshit, I will have my pets spayed or neutered. Sorry bastards that are out-breeding me, that's what they are...
