    Ok. I may be a little slow here but I’ve never seen “Scream” and for any others who haven’t an explanation might be in order. Is Holly just in mid-scream because of facing the first day of school??

    Are those horns on Holly’s head? I’d scream too if I discovered I had just got off the bus at an elementary school!

    Oh, to find all the comics that have used Edvard’s painting, you could make a coffee table book. Hmmm.

    I think she’s a sreaming because she going to have to ride a bus. Usually her mother takes her to school

    That’s not plagiarism. That’s known as an homage. It would be plagiarism if it were intended to be taken as original. It’s obviously not.

    I think there is one other painting that may give The Scream a run for its money in the number of times it has been parodied: American Gothic. Although they are a little ways further down the line, others that have had tributes in many quarters are The Creation of Adam, Whistler’s Mother (AKA Study in Gray and White), and Mona Lisa.

    I’ve done that scream at school before—-after I realized I’d left my lunch behind.

    Thanks Night. I just used Raghead’s link “(painting)” in his response and saw it. I had tried to Google “Scream” and all I got was references to the movie by that name so that’s why I was confused. I love search engines but if you don’t have much of a clue as to what exactly you are searching for it’s a hit or miss thing.
