    Oh man! I really want to do this… but I'm super busy right now… we'll have to see if I can free up some time :P

  2. Zack says:

    You'd think that state and federal politicians would, at a minimum, take a course on constitutional law or something to that effect so they could at least have a working understanding of the fundamentals of the case-law surrounding what they've sworn to defend…. I mean, hell, Brandenburg V. Ohio should be mandatory for everyone to at least know the principles of; maybe then we'd get fewer people trying to claim Butthurt in the First Degree as a cause of action.

  3. John Ammon says:

    @Zack, that's the benefit and downfall of elected officials…

  4. Tali McPike says:

    Darn it. Copied the wrong one.

  5. Xenocles says:

    Ken, you said "no nudes!"

  7. Robert says:

    Can it be a little nude and a little obscene?

  8. James Pollock says:

    Can we assume that Adobe will be making a sizable campaign contribution to whoever runs against him next time around?

  9. Dan Weber says:

    I have no idea what I'm saying with this.

    No, wait, yes I do. But if you don't, it's a sign you lack my post-modern mindset.


  10. Tali McPike says:

    @John Ammon: LOL! Love it!

    @Ken: thanks for deleting my mistake post

  11. Bear says:

    "So far, he has heard no objections from free-speech advocates defending the Constitution’s First Amendment."

    In… 3… 2… 1…



    This doesn't meet the contest requirements, so it's… just to make the point.

    (In the future, would someone remind me that some challenges… don't… necessarily… need to be met. The "research" to find a suitable pic for this was…

    I never want to do that again.)

  12. Dan Weber says:

    Okay, this one is real. Raanan-Ernest.png. If someone else wants to improve it and take credit for the improved version, so ahead.


  13. VPJ says:

    Very nice, Mr Weber. Very nice.

  14. C. S. P. Schofield says:

    Nothing obscene. What is it they say about trying to dress up an ultimate example further yet? Something about 'Gilding the Silly"?

  15. princessartemis says:

    I didn't photoshop this. I swear!

    This isn't a photoshop.

  16. David says:

    @Tali: You're welcome!

  17. Delvan says:

    Here is my offer for this, it looks to me like he may have joined forces with one of my favorite First Amendment abusers to help get his message across.

  18. Ken says:

    Delvan wins so far IMO.

  19. Justin T. says:

    Few people know that in addition to being a state legislator AND a Constitutional scholar, he's also a talented beauty pageant emcee: http://i.imgur.com/IuuOpzQ.jpg

  20. Delvan says:

    Beautiful Justin, beautiful. His pose in that shot is ripe for use for 'photos of an obscene nature' as well.

  21. ~A says:

    But the man knows what he's talking about!


  22. AlphaCentauri says:

    I notice he was careful not to use "photoshop" as a verb …

  23. Jack says:

    WTF is this guy doing photoshopping Herman Cain's face on his body and putting it on his bio? I thought he was anti-photoshop?

  24. corporal lint says:

    I can't claim credit for this, but it should be seen anyway.

  25. Jonathan says:

    My quick and dirty offering.
    If only he'd put on the sunglasses!

  26. M. says:

    ~A.: You win the thread.

  27. John Ammon says:

    I'm surprised no one has put him on "Bodybuilder Beyonce" yet…

  28. Narad says:

    No nudes or obscene pics please.

    I think taking Visanthe Shiancoe's dong off the table is ill considered.

  29. Mac says:

    Decided to go with an obvious one here. Hope you like it.

  30. Reddit's Photoshopbattles is exploding with this. Warning: they're all links, (not on-page), but some are NSFW.

  31. Penguin Pete says:

    How's this one?


    Extra screw of the turn if you're familiar with that cartoon…

  32. Adam Goldstein says:

    UHOH. It's all starting to come together now: https://twitter.com/AdGo/status/302100250007572480


  33. Bergman says:

    Well, since he's taking on more than he can handle, AND he's making an ass of himself, the obvious combination is…obvious:
