She did seem interested; he didn’t!
May 13, 2012

When I visit Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, DC, I am always amused by the reaction of people when they see this amazing work of Ron Mueck, a very realistic representation of a naked fat man!

This time, the woman seemed very interested in every part of the sculpture, taking her time and moving around to better see every detail; and, describing to someone on the phone what she was seeing! Meanwhile, the man looked visibly embarrassed, hoping that she would finish her scrutiny and anatomy description as quickly as possible!

I've missed my calling. I could be a modern art masterpiece.

The joke I use is "I have the body of a god, too bad it's Buddha" usually gets a laugh and a wink.

Joke would be even better if Buddha was actually a God .... but he was a mere mortal

Louis, I must visit this museum sometime and see this sculpture--it is truly amazing and merits the woman's scrutiny no matter what the reason. lol

Dear George,

I really have to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the encouraging and flattering words you always so kindly and generously have for me. You can't imagine how much they mean to me and how much I appreciate your friendship.

Thank you so much my friend,

Surely he was interested, but on something else. Just look at his posture and expression, it will be interesting to show what he was looking at!

Best,

Actually, I was curious too and checked! But there was nothing of importance!... But I heard him telling her: "common; stop it"!....
