Bad Art I Am Compelled To Share

All Alike

The Unknown has a little case of the Blahs today so, he whipped this picture out in about 15 minutes. I drew the three pictures on some scrap paper then cut them out and pasted them to some old construction paper, scanned the whole mess and then colored and cleaned it with Photoshop.
These three items have at least three things in common. Please tell me what they are. I'm even willing to give a prize to the lover with the best comment. Yes, that's right, a PRIZE! I will give the lover with the best comment a print of this picture, (From my printer so don't expect too much!) autographed by The Unknown and a hand written love note! (As long as you're willing to give me a mailing address if you win.) So comment away my lovers and be creative! Tell me at least three things these items have in common besides the fact that they all suck.
Make me laugh it will help me through the blahs.

Leave some love! Win a prize!


  • Am I the first? Wow! Do I win something?

    By Blogger Clo, at 16:11  

  • Clo: you win love from *me*, too. Lucky you. *BoB* Unknown: you get triple love from me *BoB* since you're feeling gloomy. As for the pictures, they're all sticks IMO. *BoB* But you gave away the sucks part! Shame on you. *BoB* For that I'm only giving you two.

  • Double WOW! I wrote that first comment and I didn't red the text yet! I'd love to win, I neeeeeeeeeed that! Oh! and with a hand written love note! I'm gonna faint! Now I have to find something brilliant and I'm just a poor canadian lady who don't speak english very well! Vacuum, I know what it is. Straw? If it's for sucking, I'm ok. Now: GW? He looks like an alien... Who is that stranger?
    Unknown, this is gonna be a hit!

    By Blogger Clo, at 16:28  

  • clo: You need to tell me three things those items have in common. No prize for leaving the first comment other the the jolly thrill of knowing you got here first with the fastest fingers.

    andrea: Oh, come on. I know you're more creative than that. That's why I took the obvious one. Come on. Make me laugh!

    Hmm... Have I been unclear with the rules?

    By Blogger The Unknown, at 16:29  

  • Not unclear, I'm just feeling uninspired. But to cheer you up, I linked you to my blog, so come check it out.


    By Blogger andrea, at 16:33  

  • clo: See how fast your fingers are! Are you serious about not knowing who GW is? :-)

    andrea: Wee Hee! Thanks love! I am feeling better all ready! :-)
    love, love

    By Blogger The Unknown, at 16:40  

  • For the first comment I was just so excited to be the first!
    Your rules are totally clears, as usual, don't worry.
    And for GW, it may be Bad Art, I may not be American, and don't listen to TV or read the papers, but your sketch is very resembling, don't worry.
    Now I have to find three good ideas *sigh*

    By Blogger Clo, at 16:49  

  • I got one...

    By Blogger Clo, at 16:50  

  • I got two...

    By Blogger Clo, at 17:05  

  • Dude you are so right on the money - except the straw and the vacuum accomplish something positive...while GW...well he just I'm blah too, LOL...and're prize enough just being you ;)

  • All three have a void inside
    All three can be called suckers

  • Sorry. Blogger had the Hickups...

    By Blogger merlinprincesse, at 17:25  

  • OK! Those three objects don't just suck: the things you put inside don't stay there very long. It is three objects I can live without. And you can be sure I will never VOTE for those (even if I were American).
    love love love

  • 1.. They've all got at least one tube, which most of us have.
    2.. You could make an air filter system or something out of them if there was a problem like Apollo 13.
    3.. They all went to the same school but at different times.
    Ah well. Hope tomorrow is better for you.

  • They are all BAD art!

  • LOVE };-}

    By Blogger Anonymous, at 18:48  

  • Those 3 things clean up messes

    By Blogger Shane, at 22:53  

  • HA ! HA !! fun!

    By Blogger Alina Chau, at 23:49  

  • Dear Unknown, just in case you haven't awarded the prize yet:

    1. Fleas - a straw is great for fleas in a flea circus, because they can use it as a slide; GW obviously runs the US as though it were a flea circus; and the vacumm is handy for clearing up the debris after the circus

    2. Pop - well the straw can be used to drink pop, or more interestingly to suck some up and then fire it at other people; GW likes to fire at other people too, and he may go pop if you squeeze him (I wouldn't know and don't want to volunteer to find out); the vac goes pop because its full of dead fleas

    3. You can build a house of straw, but like the three little piggies you may find that a big bad wolf comes and blows it all down. GW is upset (and looks kind of constipated if I may say so) because someone has stolen his wolf's costume... And the vacuum is so full because it contains a stolen wolf's costume.

    4. Oh and there's another. A vacuum (one that isn't full of ants or stolen wolf costumes) can be switched to blow and used to puff up an air bed. A straw can be used to blow fluff from under the bed. And GW will lie on top of the air bed and not notice all the ants. (Now how did they get in there again...)

    5. A vacuum is a weapon of mass destruction to ants, a straw is a weapon of mass destruction to pop and GW is a weapon of mass destruction to the environment. Its all a matter of scale.

    I could go on but I need to get these ants out of my head - how come you drew so many invisible ants?

  • Ok, how about:

    1. They perform their tasks without thought to the surrounding environment.

    2. They cannot pronounce "nuclear".

    3. They can be replaced.

    By Blogger Tony Sarrecchia, at 06:44  

  • 1. They all make noise but cannot speak

    2. They can all be used as weapons
    Straw: poison dart delivery
    GW: unchecked power
    Vacuum: bludgeoning implement

    3. They are all owned by Halliburton

    By Blogger eChelsea, at 12:09  

  • These are all wonderful! No prize awarded yet. Keep em coming! :-)

    By Blogger The Unknown, at 14:17  

  • O.k
    #1. They are tools!
    #2. They all need an operator!
    #3. They have one function!
    Bonus #4. They are all inanimate objects!
    Hee Hee! I'll stop now. Love Love!

  • 1.all three are the most useless pieces of plastic crap when it comes to politics

    2.not one of them have an IQ over 2

    3.all three have the ability to create a vacuum
    a. a straw crates a vacuum when sucking on it that's why the liquid flows against gravity
    b. he vacuum cleaner creates a vacuum electrically with hoses so the air flows through the hoses and the dirt that happens to be with it goes through a filter and the air is released into the atmosphere were as the dirt is trapped (in theory)
    c. we all know gw has a vacum in his head (that's why he looks in-bread, his eyes are slightly crossed and too close together due to critical overload on his cranium)

    4. i would love to turn them all to stone


    By Blogger RedT0pMedusa, at 16:29  

  • goes:

    They all SUCK!

    Really I am not trying to be tacky here...but they all suck right?

    Little embarrased here...but, well, I stand by my guess.

    Love, luv

  • There is a political link between these drawings and it involves the infamous "Downing Street" memo and Bush's intention for going to war.

    In effect British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw agreed that it seemed Bush had made up his mind to take action as a result of 9/11. The memo allegedly shows decisions were not made in a vacuum. Go figure!!!!

    This is such a brilliant piece of political satire which you have created here Mr Unknown. I'm still ROFL about it as I type. Inspired stuff.

  • 1. sucker
    2. creates bad noise

    modroom: LOL! Funny and thanks!

    sandbox: A cult you say? Do you worship a straw or just yarn?

    alina chau: Wee Hee! Thanks!

    caroline: WOW! Nice. All good stuff! Umm... I think you might have a problem with fleas! :-)

    tony: Ha ha! Good!

    sdit: I am a bad poet but I'm not the badpoet. I think you may think I am someone else?

    By Blogger The Unknown, at 02:46  

  • these three things are alike in that they reveal to me that i have a dangerous lack of wit in not being able to think of something clever.

    but wait! they are...good god...just like me!! damn the unknown for holding up the mirror to my emptiness.

    but i never forget the love.

    By Blogger Beth, at 05:00  

  • ok, ok, i'm not one to bash our head of state, nor am i one to bash those who have an opinion... omg, tony should get a prize just for saying that they all can't pronounce 'nuclear' - that made me laugh out loud!

    my question - will your artwork prize be signed with your real name, or will you sign it 'Unknown'?


    plus, i don't know what *BoB* means, but andrea has made me curious...

    By Blogger kg, at 07:33  

  • Oh that's a whoopsie on my part! well your "bad art" is wonderful =)

    By Blogger Sdit., at 11:38  

  • I've been scratching ever since I visited your blog and wrote my message here... they must have jumped out from your picture.... it is just above infected after all..


    love with invisible fleas, but its still love!

    By Blogger Caroline, at 13:40  

  • kimberly: What?! Bah! Heh, heh. :-)

    kg: Good for you. Umm... but I am The Unknown. BOB is Best of Blogs. Andrea wants you to go vote for her. I voted. :-)

    By Blogger The Unknown, at 23:41  

  • Ok, I know I totally missed the boat on this original post. Sorry! But I just wanted to add my two cents... I think the straw, G.W. and the vacuum are all 'MADE IN CHINA'.
    Ewwe...was that too mean?
