It's been brought to my attention that this blog has developed some younger fans, so to protect their innocence, I've edited today's Christmas muralcle to keep the front page G-rated and put the full image after the jump. For those who don't know what I'm talking about (Hi, Mom!), let's just says it's nothing I'm embarrassed to draw life-sized on my wall but is probably most delicately defined as risque.
The full post after the jump!
IT'S A DICK IN A BOX!
I was on the fence about this one. When I told Dave what I was planning,* he seemed less-than-enthused, despite being the biggest SNL fan I know (seriously. Just look at our Netflix queue). Then I finished the drawing and he didn't stop laughing for a full minute.
It turned out so good, you guys! Especially since I pulled up the image I was copying and realized both of them were wearing black suits, which is a problem since 1) I ran out of black chalk (that's charcoal up there, sucka) and 2) black suit + black chalkboard = magical floating heads (and boxes). So I put Andy Samburg in a teal number and JT in a silvery puff jacket. I'm pretty happy with it.
Dave's first-view reaction: (sung) Backstage at the VMAs!**
*At first I had him guess. "It's very Christmasy," I said, throwing my hands up in the air. "????" he said. "It involves penises. And presents." (I did some pelvic thrusts) "???!!!" he said. "It's not a movie. It's a song. A song on SNL." More confusion. Then: "Santa's My Boyfriend? I Wish It Was Christmas Today? The Hanukkah Song?!" Clueless, clueless.
**I think he's finally caught on that I'm posting his reactions and is starting to up his performance.
