Oaxaca, Mexico: Of moustaches and men and Charlie B., wherever you are.

With all of the hoopla over Rosie O'Donnell leaving The View and her chief writer being escorted off the premises for defacing a picture of Elizabeth Hasselbeck, I began to wonder what would happen if other famous photos were defaced in a like manner.

O'Donnell's chief writer, Janette Barber, was tossed out of the ABC studios when she was caught drawing a moustache on a photo of Hasselbeck. O'Donnell and Hassellbeck had gone round and round on The View when O'Donnell accused America and our soldiers in Iraq of being the "real" terrorists. Hasselebeck challenged O'Donnell when the fat one accused American troops of murdering more than 600,000 Iraqis since our occupation began. Rosie didn't like that so she stormed out of the building leaving her toady behind to draw sophomoric pitchers.

I further began to wonder about defacing photos of famous people in exactly the opposite manner. That is, removing hair instead of penciling it in.

The mind boggles at the possibilities.

John Bolton

How about this one?

William Jefferson "Bill" Clinton, 42nd President of the United States

Or this one?

Albert Gore, ex-VP and proponent of discredited Man-Made Global Warming Hoax

And, finally, last but not least:

Rosie O'Donnell, formerly of The View
Notorious loudmouth bully
Believes 9/11 was Bush conspiracy
Believes US soldiers are terrorists
Claims we murdered 600,000+ Iraqis

The next-to-last photo -- the one that is un-retouched by Mark in Mexico's talented photo lab tecnicians -- has an interesting history. I have traced it back through the following sources:

I stole it from The Jawa Report, who stole it from

Ace of Spades HQ, who stole it from

Crotchety Old Bastard, who stole it from

Venomous Kate (I like her . . . hisss), who stole it from

Parkway Rest Stop, who stole it from

velociworld, who stole it from

Grouchy Old Cripple in Atlanta, who credits

Charlie B.

Charlie B., where are you?

UPDATE: I had to retrieve and reinsert 6 of the 8 photos. I dunno why. Maybe I pissed someone off.
