Pharyngula

Sacrilege and cephalopod

This is a kind of cephalart quickie, two images that are perfect for Pharyngula. If I had rooms here I’d hang them in ornate frames surrounded by expensive lighting.

Here is the patron saint of Pharyngula, St Architeuthis, by Skot Olsen.

This one is so beautiful it brings a tear to me eye; the only way it could be improved is if it were painted on black velvet. Here’s a test: I can’t name all the people seated at da Vinci’s Last Supper, but I can name every one in this picture. Can you?

    Skot Olsen’s other work is reminiscent of those old Garbage Pail Kids trading cards.

    And Jesus did say unto them, “Verily, brothers, I have paid him only for a massage. For is it not written that this is not what it looks like?”

    Dustin, you were in the running for my Molly nomination next month, but you just sealed the deal with that one.
