Pearls before Swine

Steve Mnuchin Adult-splained Economics to Greta Thunberg at the World Economic Forum

Greta rocks the pearls of wisdom vibe!

On Thursday, U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin addressed Greta Thunberg and her demand for a complete divestment from the fossil fuel industry with the stock answer for every adult who’s found themselves debating a teenager. “Is she the chief economist, or who is she? I’m confused. After she goes and studies economics in college, she can come back and explain that to us.
Mnuchin rocks the swine vibe!
Greta rocks the wise pearls vibe!

In her remarks at the World Economic Forum ,Greta offered some pearls of wisdom before the swine by responding that it doesn’t take a college degree in economics to realize that our remaining 1.5 degrees Celsius carbon budget and ongoing fossil fuel subsidies and investments don’t add up. — “We don’t want these things done by 2050, 2030, or even 2021,” “We want this done now.!

Court Painter just simply rocks!

 

 

 

Pettifogging

Court Painter sues CC (name available upon request) for defamation over comments ‘CP has an Ass like a Yank Oligarch’ and accusations of  Pettifogging

Court Painter at the encouragement of his Press Attache and main investor A Hardon MacKay,has filed a defamation lawsuit against his main artistic rival CC.

CC was served the disposition in front of Court Painter’s self portrait Satyric Series

In a statement,  Court Painter’s spokesperson revealed that he had filed a defamation lawsuit against CC over deliberately and maliciously made false statements in an attempt to derail Court Painter’s satyrical reputation, by alleging that , CP has an ass like a Yank Oligarch in addition to accusing him of pettifogging!

The complaint seeks compensatory damages and an injunction prohibiting the further publication of CC’s defamatory statements, the statement continued.

Court Painter also published the complaint which states, “Court Painter is the preeminent painter of the political & celebrity class in the Great Dominion, a position CC has long coveted, but has not been able to attain.”

The day before yesterday—whether out of personal animus,artistic enmity, or fear of real change within the local art scene that CC and  allies have long dominated—CC lied about his perceived rival Court Painter. He did so publicly, unambiguously, and with obvious malicious intent. Court Painter’s body image  has been harmed by CC’s lies—and his sales have suffered as well, the complaint proclaimed. With this action, CP seeks to hold CC, and the art elites who enable him, accountable for distorting the truth about his satyrical physique in the middle of the critical art fashion season.

The complaint referred to CC as a “cutthroat creative,” before arguing, CC’s Defamatory Statements immediately harmed CP.

Despite reprobation,  CC’s Defamatory Statements spread like wildfire across the Internet,at local Tim Hortons,the Ship & Anchor watering hole, and took on a life of their own, it continued. Dozens of naive art followers heard (or read about) a well-known art authority figure, CC, stating as fact that, CP has an ass like a Yank oligarch and is guilty of pettifogging.

Scientifically conducted opinion surveys by Press Attache AHM have shown that CC’s false, malicious statements about CP were accepted as true, the complaint alleged, adding, In short, CC got exactly what he wanted by lying about CP—he harmed his  personal rival’s body image and ongoing fashion icon campaign, and started a damaging whisper campaign based on baseless, but vicious, untruths.

CP’s complaint also noted that CC has refused to retract his unfashionable remarks or apologize for accusing Court Painter of pettifogging.

CC (name available upon request) doubled down and stated that, Pettifogging artists like Court Painter give too much attention to small, unimportant painting details in a way that shows a limited mind.

 

TV Moments with Lev & Friends

The Donald after seeing Court Painter’s renderings of the interviews immediately called upon everyone to chip in and buy them for the future Donald J Trump Presidential Library.

Special thanks to The Donald, his caretaker Mr. McConnell, Mr.Giuliani, Mr. Pompeo, Mr.Pence, Mr.Nunes, Mr.Barr , Mr. Perry and of course Rachel.

Todays the Day

If you go down in the woods today
You’re sure of a big surprise
If you go down in the woods today
You’d better go in disguise!
For every bear that ever there was
Will gather there for certain
Because today’s the day the
Teddy Bears have their picnic
Being a slow news day, an unusual yet promising gesture of unanimity broke out as a number of prominent political and celebrity figures spontaneously announced today’s the day the Teddy Bears have their picnic!
To mark the occasion, Court Painter in his leading edge traditional style, memorialized the day with stunning and magisterial anonymous portraits.

I am worthy

A Court Painter focus group composed of Press Attache AHM, an Uber chauffeur,a member of the Canadian Energy Centre and 5 unpaid studio interns have unanimously recommended nominating Court Painter’s face as worthy to be on the new Bank of Canada $5 bill.

Court Painter in an emotional statement whispered, ” In all modesty I am worthy”.

Court Painter in characteristic self interest said,”Busy as I am, I will help with this effort in any way I can.” offering a number of versions of his handsome visage for the central bank’s consideration ( postage paid).

 

The Great Dissemblers

The Great Dissemblers
Oh-oh, we’re the great dissemblers
Pretending that we’re doing well
Our need is such we dissemble too much
We’re deceitful as everyone can tell
Oh-oh, yes we’re the great dissemblers
Adrift in a world of our own
We play the game but to our real shame
Others are left to grieve all alone
Too real is this feeling of make-believe
Too real when we feel what our hearts must conceal
Yes we’re the great dissemblers
Just lying and faux like a clown
We seem to be what we’re not, you see
We’re wearing our deceit like a crown
Pretending the world is not round
 (apologies to The Platters & songwriter Buck Ram)

The Future as Another Slogan

During the festive holiday season and much to the chagrin of his Press Attache and business manager AHM; Court Painter with too much time on his hands,  repurposed his state of the art north lit portrait studio into a silk screen shop to produce a line of messaged T-shirts based on the theme of…wait for it..Surveillance Capitalism!

Where the hell is the market for obscure surveillance ironies on T shirts for goodness sake when Facebook spielmeister Mark Zuckerberg just pronounced “The Future is Private” as a slogan for our future.

(This appears to be a slogan replacement for “Move Fast,Break Things”,  since that visionary business plan of Mr. Z. has already taken a digital hammer to breaking democratic values in quick time!)

Court Painter stubbornly refused to discuss his newly hatched market product and slammed the studio door!

Anyway…he distributed samples of the product modelled by Mr. Eye Candy himself!
