These are pretty brilliant! I love the Lance Armstrong one (maybe it's because he annoys me), and I had completely forgotten about the mess that is Britney with that hair incident. I also want to get the Kiss one for myself... and perhaps the one of Bea...

Ela said...

Dorothy! I heart the Golden Girls. I love the humour he infuses in his art! But you'll have to explain the Hannah Montana one to me...sorry I'm a little slow sometimes :)

Ela said...

Snorts and giggles over here. I think I need to frame that comment.

LOL, so basically you're saying that I singlehandedly (my that's a long word) posted about all the people you despise. This is why I heart my drolly. And yes, I kinda meant Katie and Suri as a joke, but it seems only you and Mayra seemed to have gotten that. I want Heidi's kids. I wish I could order me some.

I suppose what Victoria lacks in weight, Mr. Beck's...

Have a great night, hon!
