Thank you, Charles.
For a second or so I was the middle-aged guy in an office full of women with a big picture of a beaver on his monitor.
Nice though the beaver is, I do try not to be that guy.

Jesus, even at my office full of layabouts, rascals, and perverts I got shit for having that one pop up on my screen.

Christ, Charles, you do--nevermind.

Dan and Tim, you do understand that if your readers get fired, they won't have any money to spend on your advertisers, right?

Most of your lucrative clickety-clicks come from people at their work stations, aka "NSFW pussies", ya know....

That said - this is fascinating. It's almost like the painting was edited for strength, and the head tossed. right. out.

Hhmmmm....

I was hoping to see Jenn post about this. I still hope to hear her thoughts on the discovery.

I'm pretty sure Mona Lisa wasn't wearing pants when she sat for that painting.

I was an art history TA at UW, and one of the host hilarious things I ever witnessed was the reaction of 300 undergrads when this painting was put up on a massive projection screen in Kane Hall. Talk about realism...

I didn't know Tonderai would recognize one that wasn't mutilated.

It's not after the jump in an RSS feed, idiot. Glad I wasn't at work.

As Milicent Friendly, I open the bid at $20,000.

@10 is right, when it comes to RSS you're fucking stupid. I was glad I wasn't at work either.

It wasn't after the jump on Slog until the first three commenters complained, either..

C'mon, Charles! I know you like a good prank, but really.

By the way, how is this not pornography? I'm not getting down on pornography (heh heh). I'm just asking.

"Hey!! What's that thing on your computer! No, go back! Don't try to click away from it!"

"It's ART!!"

If it was a photograph instead of a painting, would your answer be different? Or if it was trimmed or shaved instead of "natural," would your answer be different?

Let me drill right down to it: Is it only porn if it's meant to turn you on? Because you know some folks like some bush.

My verdict: Call it "art" all you want, but it's (also?) porn... and it's NSFW.

@8 I can just imagine that.

Funny, I would never think about looking at Slog on my work computer, because the vast majority of posts have something NSFW, whether language or other content.....

I guess I'm just weird.

Words, even in 75 points, are OK at my work, but genitals probably are not. I thought my Stranger challenge was limited to the red cock dildo ad on Dan's pages. (And the occasional too-too stripper ad.)

Not everyone works in progressive libertine heaven, for fuck's sake. In fact, MOST people don't.

Though I do appreciate the irony of being called a pussy, here.
