Dennys Photo Gallery: Artists At Work

From Denny: Check out what I found today while searching for interesting artists to feature over at my arts blog, Dennys Art Sanctuary. While looking through the many photos I was struck by how many depicted the artists at work. Sure enough that developed today's theme! Enjoy the 18 photos of artists painting graffiti, portraits, sidewalks, recycling egg cartons as fine art, doodling on department store windows, making music, you name it. All great fun and immense creativity.

Dennys Funny Quotes: Funny End Of The World Cartoons, Late Nite Jokes, Funny Videos: "From Denny:  Like any responsible journalist I was waiting to make sure the end of the world did not arrive so I could report on it.

Have a great Memorial Day holiday, chill out to shed yourself of some stress, enjoying some time with family and friends.

Take time to remember the best people in your life and celebrate them this special holiday."

The Social Poets: Cartoons: Obamas Israel Peace Speech, Register Your Solution to Middle East Peace

Israel PM Benjamin Netanyahu and President Obama

The Social Poets: Cartoons: Obamas Israel Peace Speech, Register Your Solution to Middle East Peace: "From Denny:  Sagging poll numbers for President Obama has sent him off in the direction most presidents run trying to grab some greatness, this time in the form of the famous Middle East Peace talks. This week Obama kept to the usual American rhetoric of 'so, give back the land you took in 1967' strategy that the past three presidents have also tried to sell to no avail.

In case you were not alive in 1967 - or watching the news the past 30 years or maybe living under a rock - Israel did a huge land grab in 1967, taking the Sinai peninsula, the Golan Heights and the West Bank.  To make peace with Egypt they gave back the Sinai."

Current estimates are that at least 116 people have died in this sudden fierce storm last night. The storm touched down at 5:41 PM last night. The town had only 24 minutes after the warning sounded to get to safety."

Ouch Outrageous Obnoxious and Odd: Satire From The Onion: Obama Refrains From Obliterating Human Race

WASHINGTON, DC - APRIL 05: Flanked by other c...Image by Getty Images via @daylife

Ouch Outrageous Obnoxious and Odd: Satire From The Onion: Obama Refrains From Obliterating Human Race: "From Denny: With the Republicans unintentionally doing The Onion's job for them in the satire department it doesn't take much to write the comedy these days. The GOP is on The Implosion Trail politically with their latest ideas about 'health care.' They are committed to Rep. Paul Ryan's ridiculous health care legislation when 90 percent of the country hates it. Yet the GOP is dug in, stubbornly refusing to budge.

It's always something with this not so bright crowd. After they view their poll numbers in the toilet these guys still insist upon flushing again and again. It boggles the mind. So is it any wonder The Onion is dancing on their heads whenever they criticize Obama? Take a look as The Onion reads you the week's headlines:"

The Social Poets: Funny 2012 Election Politics, Obama, Bin Laden Cartoons

The Social Poets: Funny 2012 Election Politics, Obama, Bin Laden Cartoons: "From Denny:  When it rains it pours, goes the proverb. It applies to weather these days from the Spring snow melt-offs flooding the American Midwest to the South to the frenetic weirdo politics of 2012 presidential campaigning.

Mississippi River flood

I live in south Louisiana in Baton Rouge, a large city just south of the Morganza Spillway. The Army Corps of Engineers let open a number of gates to flood 18,000 acres of farmland and small towns. They hoped to save two of the largest population centers that are each a large port:  the capital city of Louisiana, Baton Rouge and the largest port, New Orleans."

The Social Poets: Mississippi River Rising: Flood of the Century

Photo by Dave Martin/AP

The Social Poets: Mississippi River Rising: Flood of the Century: "From Denny: This weekend I traveled downtown in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, to take a look for myself at the above flood stage Mississippi River in my home town proverbial back yard. Can I tell you it was a regular 'shock and awe' moment?

Just imagine for a moment a herd of elephants gone rogue and running fast and furious down hill. They are a herd packed tight and fanning out three miles wide. The Old Man River looked like those elephants were just under the water, the top of their heads barely seen in the rough choppy water.  The surface of the water looked like a 60 mile an hour wind was pushing it yet the reality was there was barely a slight breeze."

Dennys: News Politics Comedy Science Arts & Food: Funny Video: Colbert Claims Obama Takes Credit for Bin Laden Death


Dennys: News Politics Comedy Science Arts & Food: Funny Video: Colbert Claims Obama Takes Credit for Bin Laden Death: "From Denny: Only satirical Colbert could sound outraged about the death of a terrorist and how he was buried in proper Muslim tradition and sleeps with the fishes now. Colbert says he is 'outraged and he is not the only one whose rage is out.'

He goes to Fox News clips of various talking heads upset Obama was respectful of Bin Laden's body. Colbert suggested they basically 'bring back the body, stuff it with candy, and let Mexicans swat it with a stick.'

Colbert via Glenn Beck goes on to discuss how President Obama received a nine point approval rating bump from the news Bin Laden is dead. To hear Glenn Beck tell it, George Bush or even a simple shoe that ordered the Bin Laden mission - they both would have gotten the approval bump. A shoe? Guess Glenn Beck doesn't think too much of his one time hero, George Bush 43. Of course, Colbert wants to know if that shoe is a Republican."

The Social Poets: Funny Video: Colbert Reveals Style Tips From Bin Laden As Glam On The Lam


The Social Poets: Funny Video: Colbert Reveals Style Tips From Bin Laden As Glam On The Lam: "From Denny: Shaking my head while I'm grinning - what a precocious man child. Only Colbert. What can I say? I'll let him speak for himself...

Colbert on Bin Laden: 'He's been found to be living in a mansion. He picked in 2002 and he's been in trouble with the law ever since. He's basically a fundamentalist Lindsey Lohan.'

Acting like a celebrity media gossip show, Colbert takes us inside the Bin Laden compound to hear the latest juicy gossip about how Bin Laden lived his life in luxury: Glam on the Lam. It turns out that 'terrorists are just like us!'"

Ouch Outrageous Obnoxious and Odd: Funny Video: Colbert Talks Long Awaited We Got Bin Laden Party

NEW YORK, NY - MAY 01: People celebrate in the...Image by Getty Images via @daylife

Ouch Outrageous Obnoxious and Odd: Funny Video: Colbert Talks Long Awaited We Got Bin Laden Party: "From Denny: Colbert shouts out American cheers of 'USA! USA! USA!' He praises President Obama as 'the number one most Bin Laden killing president in American history.'

Colbert mocks Bin Laden all over the place in his most obnoxious high-handed tone. The world is so happy Bin Laden is gone everyone is downright giddy. So, Colbert holds up his hand mirror to remember his happy look and proceeds to kiss the mirror so he 'can remember this look forever.'

Bin Laden held the world hostage, looking over their shoulders. It's like saying you miss Hitler when he died. The world was glad to see that serial killer gone too.

Colbert says his long-awaited We Got Bin Laden Party is over due, cue the music - and party balloons falling from the ceiling like confetti. The 10 year old party cake, properly molded, says 'Wassup, Bin Laden. You are the weakest link. Goodbye.'"

Dennys Funny Quotes: Funny Video: Colbert Says Osama Bin Laden Still Dead

Dennys Funny Quotes: Funny Video: Colbert Says Osama Bin Laden Still Dead: "From Denny: In the spirit of true excessive satirical celebration Stephen Colbert talks his usual funny nonsense that is so ridiculous you can't help but laugh. His latest is downplaying how Bin Laden was said to be a figurehead but hey, America loves to hunt down and kill figureheads just as much as the guys who are involved in day to day operations.

Colbert proclaims we all love figureheads, like the British monarchy, why not terrorist figureheads? Says Colbert, 'I can't wait to see what he was wearing.'

He gives a shout out to Navy Seal Team Six. Since the real identities of the team are classified only Colbert would speculate as to who they truly are: Rambo, John MacLaine, Master Chief, Batman, Vin Diesel, Laura Croft and Kung Fu Panda."

The Social Poets: Funny Friday Lite: Osama Bin Laden Late Nite Jokes

Lisa Benson

The Social Poets: Funny Friday Lite: Osama Bin Laden Late Nite Jokes: "From Denny:  While the news outlets continue to dissect the details of the Bin Laden compound raid, the comedians have wasted no time in concocting their best jokes.  The jokes center less around Bin Laden and his demise and more around everyone's perception of the decade-long situation. President Obama is seen in a new and more favorable light."

The Social Poets: Mission Accomplished: Dead Terrorist Osama Bin Laden Political Cartoons

Scott Stantis

The Social Poets: Mission Accomplished: Dead Terrorist Osama Bin Laden Political Cartoons: "From Denny: While Pakistan bobs and weaves on who knew what and when about the whereabouts of Bin Laden for five long years, there is no shortage of opinion about his recent demise.

Frankly, no person of sound and reasonable mind believes the folks in Pakistan did not know Bin Laden was living next door. Even the locals who did not know for sure his identity knew something creepy was going on in that tourist town about 100 miles outside of Islamabad.

Of course, when you know a really bad guy with too much money, possesses a desperate need for privacy and keeps too many armed guards, well, it is a definite clue to steer clear of him. Would you try to friend a drug lord or the world's number one terrorist if he moved into your neighborhood?"

The Social Poets: Dead: Osama Bin Laden, Time To Stop Iraq-Afghan Wars


The Social Poets: Dead: Osama Bin Laden, Time To Stop Iraq-Afghan Wars: "From Denny: Justice came swiftly this weekend, dished out from American Special Forces in a deadly fire fight, unleashed by President Obama to kill decades-long terrorist Osama Bin Laden. The mastermind of the 9/11 terrorist attacks in 2001 was found living in the lap of luxury in a large mansion in the affluent suburb of Abbottabad, about 30 miles outside of Islamabad, Pakistan. As it was, in the 40 minute fire fight, it was believed he used one of his wives as a human shield as he fired upon the assault team.

Terrorist cult leader turned world pariah

Like the typical cult leader he preached sacrifice and frugal living to his dewy-eyed followers yet enjoyed a lavish life style for himself, his family and closest followers."
