Thomas Kinkade: Kitschy and Kinky

Thomas Kinkade, the painter of mega-kitschy religiously themed and militantly bourgeois schlock, tchotchkes and knickknacks bearing his imprimatur, may be a freakin’ dirty bastard.

Besides making saccharine paintings, and defrauding and duping investors, he stands accused of peeing on Winnie the Pooh, groping a fan’s breasts, and mocking Sigfried and Roy’s stage show by shouting out “Codpiece! Codpiece!”

Brings a different meaning to “Sunset on Lamplight Lane” and “Living Waters – Golfer’s Paradise, Hole One” adorning your biddy’s wall, doesn’t it?
