Presidential Portraits, But With (More) Boobs
I have never had more fun coming up with name-based puns! Titty Boobsevelt. Grover Cleavage. Luckily, there are plenty more Presidential boobie portraits where that came from. This is also a wonderful display of the beauty and diversity of boobies as well as the ugly mugs of 42 white dudes. (Remember, Cleavage served twice.)

A Western is identifiable by people on horseback in the West, and a musical involves singing and dancing. But what characterizes film noir? Richard Brody on the elusive genre: http://nyr.kr/1A6z3wz
“The term ‘film noir’ has come down to us as a product of a subordinate strain of French criticism, different from the one that came to dominate cinematic discourse with the concept of auteurism, as well as to dominate filmmaking itself through the innovations of the New Wave. It had no currency among Hollywood filmmakers of the forties and fifties, for the simple reason that French criticism over-all had little influence in the U.S. until the rise of the New Wave.”
