the doc and andy want more feet!...
by karen #1965 third grade teacher on summer vacation~so i have been doing a little creating...if you are a follower, you may remember me doing the post on the cat named phoebe and i did a dance with a green feather boa to get her down and the secret pal gift...the post...well anyway...you see i just happened to be teaching my secret pal's son...so one day, i painted his feet and did this piece of art...i painted his feet at school...i did the rest at home...didn't want any local folks to report me to big brother for painting secret pal gifts at school...
well...it caused all sorts of confusion in the classroom...all the kids wanted their feet painted...why are you painting t_ _ _'s feet?...you like him better...i tried to explain that his mom was my secret pal...but what i got was, well why aren't you my mom's secret pal?...third graders just don't get stuff like that...and people that don't teach...well...THEY DON'T GET STUFF ABOUT THIRD GRADERS!...yes, bloggers...there is more to that comment than meets your eyes...
so dr. mama secret pal...oh she just loved it...she loved it so much...well, she wanted me to do her 3 OTHER KIDS...wow...i mean...wow...so i told her to get the canvas and i would do it during summer vacation when i wanted to...well...i just figured dr. mama was so busy she would forget about the 3 OTHER KIDS...well, she didn't...she called me up about 2 weeks after school got out...and she was ready for me to start painting...
so i got the canvas...and the feet...and hopped right on it..and got it done...
i did r_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _'s feet...and r_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ said oh mrs. ray i love the blue...!
i did r _ _ _ _ _' feet...and he was a squirmer...
i did j_ _ _ _'s feet...and j _ _ _ was so ticklish...now he was laughing and i was laughing and felt back for tickling his feet...
and i put them all together and they look like this...
now folks...i got all the four kids done...i am proud...and i am done...i am about sick of all shades of green after this project...and i just had a passing thought...what if dr. mama calls back and wants me to paint her feet and dr. daddy's feet?...wow...i just don't think i can do it...kid's feet are one thing...but dr. mama and dr. daddy's feet are another...even with a good pedicure...i just don't think so...for you foot fetish folks, give it a try...but not me...
speaking of feet fetish folks...did you know that andy warhol had one?...he drew these...
and get this...andy warhol had a truly phenomenal foot fetish...the weirdest thing he owned was a mummified human foot from ancient egypt...tt was probably from a tomb-robbing, a victim of the tutankhamen craze of the 1920s...who knows how warhol acquired it...and who wants to know for that matter?
guess what?...i think david bowie...remember him...lookie...
i think david bowie may have had a fetish for andy warhol...check this picture of andy out...
now check out this picture of david dressed up like andy...
and now to end with this song that david sung about andy...
david bowie, 1972
(This is Andy Warhole and it's take one, take one) It's, it's Warhol actually
(What did I say)
Whole, it's whole as in wholes
Wah, Andy War hol, Andy War hol (he)
Like whole hub He Ha
Are you ready
Ha ha ha ha ha ha
Like to take a cement fix
Be a standing cinema
Dress my friends up just for show See them as they really are Put a peephole in my brain
Two New Pence to have a go
I'd like to be a gallery
Put you all inside my show
Andy Warhol looks a scream
Hang him on my wall
Andy Warhol, Silver Screen
Can't tell them apart at all
Andy walking, Andy tired
Andy take a little snooze
Tie him up when he's fast asleep
Send him on a pleasant cruise (hm hm hm)
When he wakes up on the sea
He sure to think of me and you
He'll think about paint and he'll think about glue
