Not all art restoration is well received. Cases like the Ecce Homo come to mind, but then on the other side, you have those art restoration projects that can make a masterpiece even better.
The Brickhouse Art Gallery in Sacramento recently found that out when a large portrait of
Dear Leader Barack Obama, which was displayed on the roof of the gallery, experienced a little noncommissioned retouch.

Of course, it might just be a cross-dressing penis thing.
One thing we love to do at PD is look at signs that come off the Reuters wire. Sometimes colorful, sometimes humorous, sometimes painfully stupid, and yet, most of the time there’s just enough to make one or two members of our staff stop and go, “Hmm…”
Here’s a few from Egypt we’re marveling at today.
PD has already shown you how OWS folds the flag, but in a recent segment dubbed, “Classic Fourth of July Table Setting Ideas” the Home and Garden Television Network revealed just how close to Occupy they are.

In that vein, good poetry can be so hard to find. (Okay, people to read said poetry is also a bit difficult to come by, but…yeah.) After saying all of that, PD is proud to present you two works by the soon to be famous Raymond Maxwell.
