Some Clean Christmas Fun!

Amongst all this baking and cleaning and shopping it is needed. This is innocent and childlike and has no indecency in it:

It is a giant billboard picture of George Bush, consisting solely of monkeys! The original artwork was banished from a New York art show. But art lovers managed to overcome this misfortune and now all and sundry can watch the image of our great leader on a billboard!

The story in greater detail:

"Bush Monkeys," a small acrylic on canvas by Chris Savido, created the stir last week at the Chelsea Market public space, leading the market's managers to close down the 60-piece show.
Animal Magazine, a quarterly arts publication that had organized the month-long show, said anonymous donors had paid for the picture to be posted on a giant digital billboard over the entrance to the Holland Tunnel, used by thousands of commuters traveling between Manhattan and New Jersey.
The original picture will be auctioned on eBay, with part of the proceeds donated to parents of U.S. soldiers wishing to supply their sons and daughters with body armor in Iraq.

So it's even a noble cause! What could be better at this time of the year?
