Welcome to Happy Hour! This group is meant to be a place share stories, swap tips and advice, and just generally get to know each other better. This is a POLITICS FREE ZONE. So please try to avoid politics, this is meant to give us all a break! So let's have some drinks and unwind!
He [Michelangelo] literally smothered the roof of the Sistine Chapel with penises, something that didn't sit well with Biagio da Cesena, who was the Pope's Master of Ceremonies. Biagio was something of a religious purist (which is understandable, given his job and all) and he was offended by the fact that the Sistine Chapel had naked people frolicking all over the damn place, going so far as to say that the fresco was more suited to a brothel.
Michelangelo, who was stressed enough already, decided that Biagio da Cesena could go fuck himself to death and incorporated him into the Chapel's paintings.
As an epic "screw you," Michelangelo painted Biagio as Minos, the judge of the underworld. That would already be pretty bad, since Minos is a demon and Biagio da Cesena was a cardinal, but as you can see, Michelangelo also decided to paint a snake biting him in the dick. And in case the meaning wasn't sufficiently clear, he gave him the ears of a jackass.
This is the funniest thing I have seen in a long time. Enjoy!
My husband bought me a wax treatment for my birthday (I guess I should take the hint lol). I have a choice between a chocolate wax and a green tea one. Which one should I do? Does anyone have any experience with either one?
So I am HUGE figure skating fan and I just adore these two and I love the song Colors of the Wind. It's such a beutiful song, yet it deal with real issues and ones that I think are relevant to today and in my opinion are always relevant. The general idea of tolerance and understanding of others who are different than ourselves and appreciation of the earth are subjects we could all refresh ourselves on on a regualr basis, especially during troubled time. Anywho I thought they did a great job interpreting it on ice so I wanted to share.
They attended the olympics in 2010 and skated well, but didn't medal. I'm happy they didn't retire though, you can tell how much they enjoy skating with each other and it's always nice to see people doing what they love to do.
