From Shmuel's Loxicography of Yiddish Design:
Have your photo taken with the Official Portrait® when it makes an appearance at Disneyland's Hall of Presidents, February 29-31.
Etymology: from the Yiddish "a chaloshes," literally to faint.
1) Sick-making; atrocious, particularly in reference to artistic shlock.
I would have preferred the "throne" motif. It's more down-to-earth.
He needs a butt going and a copy of the U-T to read while he rides.
Chac'un a son gout, I guess, but this was gratuitously vicious and, dare I say, racist-sounding. Since when is Scotty reviewing painting? And I also would like to "suggest removal" of the scurrilous comment of "Dave Berlinger."
No racism. Scott was being his usual funny self. And I was having fun with Obama, who I love so much. He rocks.
The first thing I thought of when I saw the painting was Disney, in particular "Mary Poppins." How is calling it "hallucious" even remotely "racist-sounding"? Lighten up. He had to have expected criticism after posing for a bolt of wallpaper such as this.
And let's put an end to the umbday rumor "Dave Berlinger" was kind enough to share: https://www.snopes.com/obama-official-portrait-sperm-cells/.
This is such an incredibly odd painting. It looks like the "artist" was trying to make him look Latin instead of black. And what's with the enormous hands? Disturbing on many levels...
This portrait was much worse! Looks like it was done with an Etch-A-Sketch.
I know that guy!
I will be charitable and just say this site is Philistine Central.
Especially when you consider that two of the comments belong to you, Phyllis Stein. :P
