Yo ho and a bottle of rum!

Fifteen men on a dead man's chest,
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!
Drink and the devil had done for the rest,
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!

Ahhrrr... it's the international "Talk-like-a-Pirate-Day". Here is a true treasure from the classic plastic age of model kits: MPC's Pirates of the Caribbian: Dead Man's Raft. Enjoy, ehh... I mean... Ahrrr!

A Spanish lady in her eighties, Cecilia Gimenez, recently set the Internet and art world on fire. Her curious attempt to restore the fresco "Ecce Homo" by Elias Garcia Martinez in the Sanctuary of Mercy Church near Zaragoza made world wide news. So the net buzzed with more attempts of restoration based on her depiction of Jesus many refer to as "Beast-Jesus" (clearly related to an Ewok). You can see the hilarious results of Mrs. Gimenez brave act at the tumblr page of the Beast-Jesus Restoration Society.

So I couldn't resist....

Frankenbeast Jesus....

Still from the Spanish restoration of "King Kong" (1933)
