My God! the fellow in the foreground looks very much like Bill Clinton.

Is this from the Cistine Chapel cieling? If so, this shot was taken before it was cleaned, the restored colors are vibrant and clear.
Some critics thought that reverting to Michaelangelo's original colors was destroying the somber aesthitic of the original- even though the brown color was the result of bad varnish and centuries of candle smoke! Go figure.

another artiste -- so when did you see Bill Clinton in a loincloth?

Actually tt, he was wearing it during the Fifth Millennium Evening at the Whitehouse, event. He put a lampshade on his head just prior to stating, "cowering in churches waiting for the world to end....determined to buy desert land and hoard gold, bullets and Skoal in their pickup trucks". Then he cuddled his Y2K Bug Beanie Baby, zipped his pants and took his seat.
I personally think the lampshade would be more fitting than a hood, providing it isn't too gaudy. Tassles twisting in the wind might be a festive, decorative touch. Scalloped would add some class to the big event and give it a bit more of a 'formal' ambiance. Red is totally out of the question, there are simply far too many shades of it and it would be so tacky to clash with the flag he will eventually be wrapped in, set aflame. If he chose a stark white, as opposed to eggshell or country, it would probably be less likely to show any visible stains resulting from the risidual chemicals of whatever extinguishing device they use to 'put him out'. I would still recommend that whatever he decides upon, be Scotchguarded, in order to extend the life and beauty of it.

Those people cowering are examples of sheeple.
This forum is far funnier than David Letterman with no commercial breaks plus I don't have to stay up till 11:00 PM.
Excellent job, sure worried.
