Me too.

It's one of very few things that I miss from living in the Midwest. Their glow...as a kid, it was like magic to me.

The age of fat bugs is upon us :drool: speaking of which, the cicada and turtles dropped for me today. That turtle..probably my fav of the fatties so far.

I'd take a housefly to hang opposite a Goldblum portrait.

The irony of that coming from the same person who not long ago likened Hitler to a super hero.

i think the intent of the image is important. there are intended to lampoon the person, not to worship and revere. many artists have pictured hitler in their works. Banksy, Dr. Seuss (no joke google it), Scott Scheidly, and more. None are done in support.

i understand the irony or anyone's issue with it. it's light at best.

The big message here is mike likes to make money off of nazis.
