An airplane was about to crash; there were 5 passengers on board, but only 4 parachutes. The first passenger said, "I am President Obama, the chosen one. The world needs me, I can't afford to die." So he took the first parachute and left the plane. The second passenger, Nancy Pelosi, said, "I am the Speaker of the House. And I am the smartest woman in American history, so America's people don't want me to die." She took the second parachute and jumped out of the plane. The third passenger, John Kerry, said, "I'm a Senator, and a decorated war hero from the Army of the United States of America." So he grabbed the parachute next to him and jumped. The fourth passenger, ex-President George W. Bush, said to the fifth passenger, a 10-year-old schoolgirl, "I have lived a full life, and served my country the best I could. I will sacrifice my life and let you have the last parachute." The little girl said, "That's okay, Mr. President. There's a parachute left for you. America's smartest woman took my schoolbag."

An excellent chop of a very good, very old joke. Great job.
Since the site tricked me into making a dupe comment, I stand pat: Great chop of a great old joke.
Watch your use of simple drop shadows, hidden. It makes it look like everything was just pasted on. You don't want shadows on the landscape below from your layers.
I agree, classic joke, and a great illustration of the joke being playing out. Hilarious
Crazy expression of Bush... he knows what will happen after the fall good caricature and funny joke
I agree with pcrdds use of shadows has no meaning in the contest
Congratulations Wanderer, great chop, glad you knocked down a Cup.
Thank you, FRIENDS. I used shade to show illusion airplane and parachutists vibration..
[ A professional clown - Kenneth Kahn, aka "Kenny the Clown" - is running for mayor of Alameda in California. The 41-year-old clown admits that even his sister won't vote for him, but he's still hopeful to win city elections in November. ]
Call me silly, but this news is no bigger surprise to me than Gary Coleman running for Miss America 2006, except that Gary Coleman is slightly more qualified. There are too many clowns in politics already, not that you didn't know that. Which makes our country a few clowns short of a circus. See, once in a while I like to tell you things you already know, just so that I sound smart. So next time you run into a politician, make sure you ask "Hey mister! Are you a clown?" Then check if all his balloon animals are ribbed and lubricated.
In this contest you are asked to photoshop politicians as clowns in any environment you choose - photos, paintings, magazine covers, etc.
Create images of politicians (or government leaders) from around the world using or wearing consumer electronic devices (iPods, Games, Computers, etc) OR create consumer electronic items specifically for any politician (or government leader) from around the world.
