Obama on a unicorn!

I have to say, the next time Nathan makes a t-shirt suggestion, ya'll had better jump on it. I did. I bought DC artist Chris Bishop's Obamawear.

Not only was I suddenly able to see Barack Obama riding a unicorn, but when I put on the shirt, the heavens opened behind me so a choir of angels could appear. They sang RuPaul's "Supermodel" as God's sternly-worded warning to Obama that "You better work." That, in turn, caused a celestial time warp that sucked the angels back to ancient Egypt where they taught the Egyptians how to make pyramids.*

Either that or the shirt tag was dipped in acid.

Either way, I took a picture - it's after the jump.

*And that's how Barack Obama invented the pyramids, boys and girls.


(Okay, so I'm learning how to use Photoshop. Cut me some slack - or leave me a comment and tell me how to improve it!)

Well I'm sure all the bisexual folks think it's fine, since "Unicorn" is a term that is sometimes used to refer to us.

Taken from this (in)famous quote from an exasperated bisexual activist: "They think we are like unicorns, that we're fabled but don't really exist."

I think you look really cute! Yay Bil. Yay Obama.

It would be ironic if this T-shirt became particularly popular among the Obamaqueers --- is he really riding a unicorn into Washington DC, or is he riding a large donkey with a Big Screw coming out of its forehead?

I hope it's a unicorn, but ... only time will tell.

(P.S. Want to have fun with PhotoShop, Bil? Add in a few palm leaves, one or two disciples helping to lead the four-legged beast, and a few adoring Jerusalem residents ... and have it ready one week before Easter.)

Artistically, it's a great shirt. But I'd be afraid somebody would misinterpret it, somehow or another, and I'd wind up in a physical assault. So many lunatics out there.

god, that president guy is soooo annoying -- got elected to office without even knowing there was an opposition party ("golly, gee, the, the, the, the republicans don't wanna buy my stimulus package?"), and the high-toned-christian-old-lady register of his voice (okay, everybody, let's all go to church, now. remember, keep hope in the promised land alive, y'all.) is, like, wince!

but, as for that cutie Nathan? c'mon and make a few recommendations for me, honey pie. E-V-E-R-Y weekend!

btw, is Alex the only one around here who understands my sense of humor?,-85.123611&spn=0.3,0.3&t=m&q=41.11,-85.123611

LOL That is a hilarious summation of The Savior Myth. Good times. As for photoshop advice: If your photo was taken in front of a light backdrop, try to use a light backdrop substitute. Also - try cutting chunks of the background out with the "polygon select tool" and once your pic is free, select it and under the layers drop down click "feather" and choose between 5 and 10 px... ctrl-x to cut and then paste it onto your background. Gives a nice soft edge.

p.s. I love this blog.
