Delvaux. How could I resist?

Delvaux. Not even close. Plus who *doesn't* hail a cab when they're naked?

I was hoping this was an art contest because, as you know, I give out the best titles.

For example, that first piece is called "Skeleton Man Finally Gets Invited to a Gang Bang."

You're welcome.

Hadn't heard of either of these. Delvaux, what a weirdo!

Although I appreciate the NC-17 Chirico, I really like Maurice (What true afficianados calls him). I have never heard of him before, but feel like I should have.

Here are 2, of many, other pictures I like of his.

This is a tough one--I was prepared to vote for Delvaux, but at Chuckdaddy's suggestion I went image-delving, and I think I'm going to go with Denis.

You know - I think I'll have to go for Denis, too. Quirky positivity does it for me today.

Here's a vote-by-email for Delvaux...

...but a vote-by-me for Denis. It was close, but Chuck's advocacy worked.

Delvaux

The Denis contingent ties it up... but then falls at the last minute (relatively) as Delvaux takes the round 6-5. YOUR VOTE COUNTS!!!
