SkyMall Monday: Super-Sized David Statue
Think that David was a masterpiece that needn't be updated? Believe that gluttony should not be celebrated? Well, while you paint by numbers, we'll be reading the product description:
Classic art is busting out at the seams! If Michelangelo's famous David was resculpted today by someone who'd recently been to a fast food joint, he just might have conjured up this super-sized fellow!
Hand-cast in quality designer resin, complete with modesty fig leaf for display in home or garden...
If only ancient Rome was blessed with a few more Friendly's locations, the original David might not have needed to be plumped up for modern times. Thankfully, the "modesty fig leaf" allows you to display this statue inside or outside without offending guests or neighbors. However, we kind of think that his junk should have been covered by a greasy Taco Bell wrapper.
You don't need to be an art history major to understand this modern man. Finally, art that doesn't make us feel dumb or inadequate. It just makes us feel thinner when we stand next to it.
