"One fun fact I learned while on the air with Keith Olbermann was that humans on the Internet are scumbags. People say children are cruel, but I was never made fun of as a child or an adult. Suddenly, my disability on the world wide web is fair game. I would look at clips online and see comments like, "Yo, why’s she tweakin?" "Yo, is she retarded?" And my favorite, "Poor Gumby-mouth terrorist. What does she suffer from? We should really pray for her." One commenter even suggested that I add my disability to my credits: screenwriter, comedian, palsy."

I saw this at the Art Institute of Chicago yesterday and I don’t think you’ve posted it yet.
Diego Rodríguez de Velázquez
Kitchen Scene, 1618/20
Oil on canvas 21 7/8 x 41 1/8 in. (55.9 x 104.2 cm)
Here’s the text on the plaque:
This is one of a number of strikingly naturalistic genre scenes of humble subjects that Diego Velázquez painted at the beginning of his career, before he left his native Seville for Madrid. The picture has suffered abraison over time, with the areas of dark paint being more damaged than the light highlights. another version of the subject in the National Gallery of Ireland, Dublin, includes a biblical episode, the supper at Emmaus, in the background. this narrative lends a moralizing solemnity to the simple objects and serving girl that are the main subject. Such a background vignette was probably never part of the Art Institute’s picture.

I’ve posted it before, but am reposting for the additional info. Thanks for the submission!
