Famous People And Idiots– How Many Can You Name?
I’ve been working on some projects, and have fallen behind in my blog posts, so I shall dip once more into the archives… (insert dramatic piano chord here).
I’ve always loved caricatures, and I’ve done a lot of them– some for assignments, others simply to promote my work. Here’s an assortment, I hope you’ll recognize some of them. Answers at end of post.
Note: There are puns and jokes in some of the caricatures. I’ll list these at the end as well.
5. Who guitarist Pete Townshend
Puns & Jokes:
1. B.B. King is playing two bees and a crown, “spelling” out his name.
2. There’s a little angel on Bishop Sheen’s chalkboard. He would write on it during his television show, sometimes completely filling it up. He would then walk away from it, and continue speaking. When he returned to it, the board would be clean– and he’d thank his “little angel” for helping him out.
3. Everybody knows owls say “Who?” This particular owl is saying “Hu.” A single red star is a symbol for communism.
4. Picasso is receiving a swift kick while holding his anti-war painting, Guernica.
5. Albert Einstein (playing violin in background) is most closely identified with his famous formula for energy, E = mc2. I changed the second part to c4 miles, as a pun
on The Who’s hit record, I Can See For Miles.
The other three original members of The Who can be seen in the three planets. There’s
a spider hanging off the orange planet. Bassist John Entwistle’s face appears in the orange planet. Entwistle wrote the group’s most famous song that was not written by Townshend: the novelty number, Boris The Spider… whew!
