The roots of the corkscrew

As some of you may or may not know, Dan is very fond of what we in the business like to call the corkscrew gesture. I am also fond of said gesture and it is a vestige of our high school days when it was what all the cool kids did. The corkscrew basically involves sticking your index finger in the air and doing a "corkscrew motion" to indicate that you find something to be pleasing.

But little did we know that in fact Jesus himself had been doing the corkscrew thousands of years before we even started playing Yahtzee for money every day...It was at the Prado (the biggest art museum in Madrid, Spain for the uneducated among you) that we discovered this astonishing fact in two paintings from the 17th and 18th centuries. I present to you exhibits A and B...judge for yourself:

Rich, tell your brother to post something new. He's turning into a munz. and no, by the way, my senator isn't a fucking rubber stamp.

the cult of traditional intelligence is chauvinistic. The future belongs to feigned quirkiness and art, art, art, art (as long as said art isn't too relevant or good). love you, rich.

DAN---speaking of munz, could you please create a link to his site on your sidebar?

Don't link to it. That's like asking a master Oragami artist to fold napkin's at PF Chang's.
