Taste The Raindow


The O'Leary twins always looked forward to St. Patrick's Day!!!
They got to eat all the cabbage and corn beef they wanted
which gave them the gassy lift they needed to taste the rainbow.
It's raining Shamrocks and Skittles Yall!
He he he he!!

You are so silly, Vanessa! These kids look too happy by their gassy lift! Are you sure they didn't partake in eating (or smoking) some other green substance? Happy St. Paddy's Day, you silly leprechaun!

These two are awesome V! I remember those commercials way too well... just another hole in the Swiss cheese I call my brain ;).

Thank you so much for the comment on the recipe!!! You inspired me and I just went with it! He he, nothing like a zap of V inspiration to make an artist crank out a piece in the last hour of the day ;). You rock lady! You rock.

Cheryl Lynn said...

Shamrocks and Shaleleighs! What a wonderfully fun and hilarious illustration! You are just the Bees Knees, my dear. You never cease to amaze me with your whimsical and fantastical stories. Truly, you are an artistic force to be reckoned with, Momma!

Bravo!

BAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHA!!! Oooooh ow ow ow, oh my back. Girlfriend, your art should come with a warning label! Mmmmm, the smell of corned beef, cabbage, and Skittles. You are a gas! Oh, come on now, you know someone had to say it.

Love ya, Nester!

Ces said...

NOOOOOOOOO!!!

No scuba diving in the Passaic River for you. It was full of green sludge when I lived there in the beautiful garden state.

Keep your head above water sister Vee!

Your art is full of mirth and it definitely reminds me of my happy childhood.

Love the PFFFFT effect. It's cute on the little ones but however, gross on the big ones. That's a cause for divorce. "Your Honor, I want a divorce due to methane poisoning."

Divorce granted!
