Shemp Howard's Official Portrait Unveiled

On Feb 12th, former president Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama's official White House portraits debuted, the former presidents was painted by artist Kehinde Wiley.

I decided the Barack Obama portrait needed some improvement, it needed to be "Photo-Shemped". 

So I asked longtime Facebook friend and Photo-Shemp master Tom Hackett to replace Barack Obama's head with that of Shemp Howards. Tom accepted the challenge and within an hour produced the stunning results.

So, making it's debut today, presenting the official Shemp Howard portrait:

  1. Will they be displayed side by side ? It does make more sense to have 44 behind Wrigley Ivy tho. What might Shemp have choose ? Pie meringue?
