The Minnesota State Fair just doesn't get fine art.

This portrait of Bill Cosby caused quite a stir at the fair before it was taken down after being up for only a day.

The portrait, made form "rapeseed" or canola seed, was created by Nick Rondo, a 37-year-old software engineer. He wasn't surprised people complained.

"The point was just to see, would there be outrage? Would there be people talking about it? Would it even get through?" he told Pioneer Press.

Although the portrait was originally allowed into the fair, an official made Rondo cover up the word "rapeseed" on his work, which basically defeats any type of message the artist was trying to make.

Despite the removal of the portrait, Rondo said this was for the best.

"I think it's actually maybe the best possible scenario," he said. "Up for a day and then taken down."

Caitlyn Jenner introduced herself to the world on Monday by appearing on the cover of “Vanity Fair,” breaking the internet and winning practically everyone over with her new look.

And on Tuesday Mike Huckabee also started making waves online… for being a total creep.

At the National Religious Broadcasters Convention back in February, the former Arkansas governor was discussing the issue of gender identity, when he made an offensive joke that mocked people who are transgender.

“Now I wish that someone told me that when I was in high school that I could have felt like a woman when it came time to take showers in PE,” he said. “I’m pretty sure that I would have found my feminine side and said, ‘Coach, I think I’d rather shower with the girls today.'”

World Net Daily uploaded the video to YouTube this past weekend, so it just started to get national attention this week.

Any sliver of a chance he had a becoming president just went down the drain with that punchline.

Meanwhile on Twitter, the Huckabee jokes are top notch.

Thursday was Texas Muslim Capitol Day in Austin, and a bunch of anti-Muslim protesters and a Texas lawmaker made things really weird.

The event is held every 2 years and is organized by the Texas chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations as an opportunity for the Muslim community the meet with lawmakers.

This is the first year that protesters have showed up, according to the Texas Tribune, and one woman took things to a whole new level of crazy when she pulled a Kanye on one of the speakers.

“I proclaim the name of the Lord Jesus Christ over the Capitol of Texas,” she said. “I stand against Islam and the false prophet Mohammad. Islam will never dominate the United States and by the grace of God, it will not dominate Texas.”

State Rep. Molly White also created a stir with a Facebook post about the event in which she requested that Muslims visiting her office publicly pledge allegiance to the U.S.

“I did leave an Israeli flag on the reception desk in my office with instructions to staff to ask representatives from the Muslim community to renounce Islamic terrorist groups and publicly announce allegiance to America and our laws,” she wrote. “We will see how long they stay in my office.”

Of course, people online aren’t taking this very well.

From Facebook:

“On behalf of my fellow Christians, I renounce Molly White.” – Joe Alvarado


“I was born and raised here in Texas, and I was also raised Muslim. I didn’t realize that 15 years of pledging allegiance to America in public school wasn’t enough to solidify my American identity. Plz let me know how your Israeli flag will help me become a better American, and also how I can avoid becoming a terrorist. Thank you.” – Laila Khalili

 

 


 

 

 

Speaker of the House Joe Straus issued a statement afterwards commenting on White’s mandatory oath.

“The Texas Capitol belongs to all the people of this state, and legislators have a responsibility to treat all visitors just as we expect to be treated — with dignity and respect,” he said. “Anything else reflects poorly on the entire body and distracts from the very important work in front of us.”

Wait for it…

The uploader of this video could sense this woman’s rage as she dealt with the person at a ferry’s ticket counter, so he started recording.

Thanks to his quick thinking, we are now blessed with this fantastic moment where she flips the hell out.

In case you can’t tell, she is “so mad.” SO MAD.

The Price is Right has been especially cringeworthy lately.

First we had this little gem a few days ago, where one contestant celebrated his win a bit prematurely, while his competitor made one of the worst bids we have seen.

Until now.

These two clueless contestants seem to think iPhones are made out of solid gold and unicorn tears.

"I hope the marketing people at Apple are watching this," said Drew Carey.

The reactions from the audience are priceless.
