    It's an imagined painting, not one she posed for. And it's only topless so it doesn't address the leading question.

    “It’s historically significant — it’s radical to sexualize someone people think of as asexual,” spokesman Koji Inoue said.

    That's kind of crazy, Kimmel "only" makes $8 mil. I don't know anyone who would say it's a good idea to spend a quarter of your take home pay on a painting, especially one that appears to be destined to be a gag gift.

    I think it's hysterical. And whatever he makes, he has been making that for a long time. One of the best wastes of money on record.

    I thought she'd have harder nipples though.

    Well, damn, I cannot un-see that now.

    On the other hand, I would dearly love to see a portrait of Adrienne Barbeau naked

    Considering it's Bea Arthur and it's Jeff Ross, I wonder if he's disappointed it only shows her from the waist up.
    Bea Arthur did a lot for his career. (3 minute mark) didn't realize he did this before the Comedy Central roast.

    You'd fuck the painting? Well, that's weird.
