Where are we going and why am I in this basket?

This morning I would like to thank Memarie Lane for making me sick to my stomach. No, really. Go read her post about how the U.N. has spent $23 Million on painting the ceiling. This was her source.

As I commented over at her place, I am sick to my stomach over this. Here’s a few tidbits that make me especially nauseous:

$633,000 came from Spain’s budget for overseas development aid.

  • AND HOW MANY CHILDREN WOULD THAT FEED??

Spanish artist Miquel Barcelo told the press that his 16,000-square-foot ceiling artwork reminded him of “an image of the world dripping toward the sky”.

  • I think it’s an image of morality dripping toward HELL.

U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon praised the piece and thanked Barcelo for putting his “unique talents to work in the service of the world.”

  • Yeah, thanks a lot. NOT.
