Thomas Kinkade, the self-proclaimed "Painter of Light," has been painting the same five scenes for quite some time, and getting filthy rich in doing so. Where creativity bankruptcy would hinder most, he has turned it into a bustling empire where his paintings are mass produced, each then sold as original thanks to the addition of a few random brush strokes supplied by his army of assembly line workers. In short, he's a pretty big douchebag in the art world. This week the Something Awful Forum Goons celebrate this wonderful man's work and also follow up on a past Phriday with another delightful round of "Paintings of Light."

Since certain websites, ebaumsworld for example, love stealing images from Something Awful, we're using a slightly different watermark on the images. Hopefully it is not too intrusive. Apologies if it makes your head explode, but I do my best to make sure it does obscure any of the action in the picture.

EXPLODASAURUS made this horrible mess of an image that I assume has some exciting activities in it.

Migoal pleases me greatly with this image.

    Meditations from a Movable Weiner

    Sometimes I dream that I'm sitting in the back of the defunct Weinermobile as it careens driverless down the highway. At first I thought this was symbolic of the powerlessness I feel in life, but then I realized it's actually the Weinermobile's dream of being able to drive again.

    BarkWire.com Dog Reviews: The Barquis de Sade & Cleaver

    Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.
