Mental pygmies. Pants for horses and dogs next.
The principal who was in charge when the image was shown to the kids has resigned. The implication the stories give is that he resigned in disgrace. However it’s my opinion that resigning in disgust is more likely.
And they talk about left wing “snowflakes.”
As an isolated joke, this is hilarious.
As a sadly accurate portrayal of Floridian fear and ignorance, it’s just pathetic!
Either way, a great cartoon!
Might as well telling all the boys to wear bathing trunks while taking showers …. after gym class!!!
So, does anybody know if the David statue portrays a circumcised male? Inquiring minds want to know… ;^)
This American Puritanism is really getting out of hand !
Just a week or two ago, “Dilbert” was dropped by dozens of venues because of arguably racist mutterments from its creator.
Now this, a more serious assault on art and artist.
Does it follow by any species of logic that some papers will drop this particular cartoon today… or banish the feature going forward?
Off topic: When I viewed the original “David” I wondered why the hands and head seemed so large, out of proportion to the body. Is it because it was meant to be viewed looking up from below?
Pure ignorance. Michelangelo’ s David is art, not porn. A few centuries ago a pope commissioned an artist named Daniele da Volterra to cover the nudity of the Sistine Chapel and for this reason, the painter was nicknamed “il Braghettone”, an untranslatable term but which literally means “large breeches”, even though he had covered the parts with veils.
Remember the toga rules commando underneath in most cases both male and female
What’s also funny is the art in question was originally supposed to be install a bit off the beaten path, but church officials were so taken by the beauty of the work, they moved it to the front vestibule.
But the liberals running Hollywood do the same thing in main stream movies every day. Full frontal shots of a man? Can’t have that. But women, no big deal.
First Disney ( who should move to a state that wants them!) now this; Florida should lose each and every tourist dollar that comes in to that second rate state, UNTIL, they get rid of homophobe desantis!
Well done Clay!
So how many right wing christian zealots ACTUALLY complained about this before DeSatan ran with it? My guess…less than 3.
I will never understand people choosing to live their lives through a bible.
If sixth graders are allowed to know that male genitalia exist, our children could turn into… (gasp) Europeans!!! “The horror! The horror!”
John Ashcroft, AG. under Bush the lesser, had statues at the DOJ HQ fitted with cloth drapes.
Nice abs, but small in the personality department.
OH GOOD GOD!!!
The stupidity of the Heffalumps and their whining minions is totally out of hand!! This would be so much funnier if it wasn’t so sadly true. ONE whining parent cost this school principal their job…where will the Christaliban STUPIDITY END???? REAL AMERICANS must TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK from these IGNORANT FOOLS!!!
The Morality Police are on patrol. What’s next? Ban on public dancing? Kevon Bacon, where are you?
The mayor of Rome just invited the students and principal from the school to Rome to see the statue
The first book that they should ban is the Bible it has wars, slavery , adulatory, and many other things that kids should not be seeing
Too bad the truth doesn’t set the idiots free…
I still say we should have kicked Florida out of the Union after the 2000 election debacle.
If you are taking the family to Italy, better leave Florence off the itinerary.
One of the latest? The banning of Kermit the Frog’s song “The Rainbow Connection.” Along with the Dolly Parton/Milley Cyrus hit “Rainbowland.” What’s next, Judy Garland’s “Somewhere Over the Rainbow?”
Don’t go feeding the troll!
Do these parents have sex in the same house that there children are in?
This is like deja vu from AJ Ashcroft in the early 2000’s. Righties always recycling their crap.
This is a great toon. It makes a good point!
Love this comic. Hard to believe the way this country is going ~ too many children and not enough adults!! Just read this today ~ what a travesty! ………… https://www.cnn.com/style/article/agatha-christie-novels-edited-offensive-language-gbr-intl-scli/index.html
Put lipstick on a pig it’s still a pig. Cover up art and it is no longer art.
Should have followed the lead of the Vatican and several popes and whacked the offending member off.
Parents who want to keep their children, no matter what age, as conservative as they are, should home school… goes for all the parents who don’t like what professional licensed educators are choosing to teach their precious snowflakes. ’Tis a minority that is ruling the majority. We must all vote in every election, fed/state/local, to end this malarkey.
AOC calls story of Rosa Parks ‘too woke’ for Republicans
‘When we talk about progressive values, I can say what my progressive value is,’ congresswoman says
Duval County, in Florida, banned the book in its schools along with 175 other titles.
“‘The Life of Rosa Parks’ – this apparently is too woke by the Republican Party,” she said.
She likened the proposed legislation to fascism.
“When we talk about progressive values, I can say what my progressive value is,” she said. “And that is freedom over fascism.”
In St. Augustine, FL the Ripley’s Believe It Or Not museum has a copy of the Statue of David in its parking lot. The naughty bits aren’t covered, but the locals made the museum surround it with tall hedges and create an indirect route in order to see it…
Did David steal that outfit from Kirsten Sinema, or just her look?
This is so funny Clay! Those people are so stupid! Geez-o-pete!
cHARLTON hESTON,planet of the apes>i STILL DON’T BELIEVE HE DID THAT.
Is there anybody who wants to see Ron De Santis naked?
Wasn’t there a Simpsons episode about this way back where such people thought this? Gotta remember, Florida: If you see ancient artwork and all you can see is the “naughty stuff,” it’s not them; it’s YOU. Perverts…
He’s perfectly correct — that red and that purple clash horribly.
The principal should have apologized to the students for showing a piece of art with such unrealistically small genitals. ;^)
