I am about to utter a very hypocritical phrase

See, I am a total cultural snob. I studied modern and contemporary art [and know the difference]. And I am consistently appalled when daft spectators encounter a beautiful minimalist piece and say to their daft on-looking pals:
"It's not art. I could do that!"

Yeah right dipshit! The depth of meaning is clearly lost on you. 

Which leads me to these adorable cake toppers:


But seriously, I could do that! The artist is charging $50-60 for each custom painted little couple, but their Etsy store sells blank people you can paint yourself for a mere $5. This is a no brainer. It won't be art, but it will certainly be personal and cost effective!

  1. I love that you used the term dipshit.

  2. Haha, that's funny! I'm ALWAYS doing that...I see something cool and I think, "wait, I can do that for half the price!"

    How cool that you're from Ft. Worth - I actually live in Roanoke, just northwest of Southlake/Grapevine. :)

  3. My fiance graduated from Northwest in '03! He played quarterback his senior year...maybe you know each other? That's crazy!

  4. There's actually another Etsy seller that does the same thing at a lower price. The seller's name is "NakedPeggies."
