Not the Onion, Part xxxii3(a)b(2)
LOS ANGELES, California (Hollywood Reporter) -- Comedy Central has ordered "Lil' Bush: Resident of the United States," a cartoon satire that re-imagines President Bush and key executives in his administration as elementary school misfits.Good evening, folks. I hope you've been having fun time-wasting today. I know I have. On Level 134 of Granny, only another couple hundred (it seems) to go.
The title character is surrounded by close pals like Lil' Cheney, who grumbles unintelligibly, and Lil' Condi, who pines for Lil' Bush and does his homework for him.
"Bush" is not without its risque moments. When Lil' Bush's school serves falafel instead of hot dogs for lunch in one episode, he and his pals torture the cafeteria employees with methods made famous during the Abu Ghraib prison scandal.
Dropped in at the Winter Expo (or whatever they're calling the old Holiday Market) at the Evanston Art Center today. It's lovely. Lots and lots of choice stuff -- tons of ceramics, jewelry, prints (not mine -- I go up this Sat and Sun with the students). Absolutely no (well, hardly no) crap, and very little holiday or even winter themed (regardless of what the show is called) stuff. And you can put your name down on a piece in the silent auction, too. Again, not schlock. Some very cool lamps.
I was in the first one (with a lot of my Gillson Park paintings) about 3 or 4 years ago following the reinstatement of the sale after a several year absence, but sold nothing at all so never bothered with it again.
But if you're expecting lots of Santas and teddy bears, go elsewhere.
