    As I recall, in the Iliad, somebody went up to the gates of Troy and said, “Hi! Here’s a horse for ya’ll! BFF’s, OK?” I think the dogs skipped that part.

    So, is there a cultural reference I’m missing?

    Considering that the title seems to be “Carrying The Urn” I suspect the occasion depicted is not a happy one. On the other hand, what would one expect from the artist of “Grave of a Suicide”?

    It turns out this was Carl Bloch’s breakthrough painting. He went on from here to become one of Denmark’s foremost artists and an important figure in European painting generally.

    As one might predict, it’s called “Sleigh Ride” or “Children Toboganning.” It’s from 1934, which is well into the copyright era; interesting that Melcher feels free to use it. He’s probably relying on parody as fair use. Turns out Dietrich was a self-trained artist, a “naive artist” as the jargon goes. After being ignored for years, he had the good fortune to catch on as the darling of the proponents of “naive art” and was able to support himself by his painting until his death in 1957. He seems to have been very cheerfully commercial about his work, sticking to what made him famous.

    As previously noted, it’s Greek dress, Greek music, Greek history and Greek customs. Not Hebrew. Not to mention that the Pythagoreans date from a time centuries before the time of Jesus. At which point it stops being funny and becames both pointless and stupid. If this guys going to get paid for doing nothing but sticking captions on other people’s artwork, you would think he would take the trouble to avoid pulling dumb stunts like this! But the worst of it is, the vast majority of people are too ignorant to notice the difference, or probably even to understand this comic at all.

    I hate to break it to Mastroianni and Hart, but yoou use deer urine to ATTRACT deer, not to hide your scent. Oh, well, just another ignorant cartoonist—or two.

    Most of the older conspiracy theories were primarily used to justify killing Jews. That stuff actually predates Christianity.

    I can’t track this one down to find out the real title and something about it. Has anyone else had better luck?

    The painting is “The Order of Release,” now at the Tate.

    “The painting depicts the wife of a rebel Scottish soldier, who has been imprisoned after the Jacobite rising of 1745, arriving with an order securing his release. She holds her child, showing the order to a guard, while her husband embraces her.”
