Mr. Von Bakonstein goes to Washington part 1

Fueled by a hearty breakfast, it was time to stop fucking around and go do some touristy shit so we could get a few location shots with our polyvinyl chloride porcine friend.


Trains and old movies, how interesting *yawn*.In this photo we recreate the scene from Mr. Smith Goes to Washington* in which Jimmy Stewart exits Union Station (a portal for rail travel similar to a modern day airport) and is transfixed by the gleaming white cupola of the Capitol building.


Look between the trees. The white thing at the end of the street.We only had to step over eight homeless people to get to the other side of the traffic circle** where you can first spot the non-retractable dome of congress.

On the upshot, Red's hair looks faboo caught in the brisk winter wind!***


It's like my own personal Firecrotch of the Month contest, and I win every time!Fernando shelled out good money to Blagojevich for this seat. Unfortunately it is outside the senate.


I am speaking metaphorically. He already had that dirt on his nose when he came to DC.But he is a pig. One would expect him to get his nose a little dirty in politics


*A movie about a starry-eyed junior senator from some square state that is lauded as being idealistic despite the fact the entire film is focused on his furthering a frivolous special interest project (a recreation camp for young boys - highly suspect in and of itself) including wasting valuable floor time and taxpayer dollars to ensure this measure is passed.

**One of the many cluster-fucks created by letting a Frenchman design our hallowed swamp-front seat of U.S. power.


***It was actually really damn cold and we were not properly dressed for the weather, nor well enough equipped for a trek around the deceptively large National Mall (not to be confused with the Mall of America) so we decided to pack it up early and come back another day for part 2.

Great hair. Also, why don't you throw him at Bush when he gets back? Please write "that blue yak" on him since I gave you the idea.

DC looks so nice in other people's photos.

Wow, you are cynical! But then again, you're right about Mr. Smith's special interests...

The last DC pictures I took were of the cherry blossom festival, and ended with me convincing my then-girlfriend to lie down at the edge of the Basin so it would look like the Washington Monument was her junk.

Class-y.

Your hair is so long and lovely, Red!

I can't believe this pig gets to travel more places than I do. Lucky bastard.

Red, that isn't wind to move that much hair around, it's a typhoon!

Beautiful by the way...

What's it gonna take to get him to send me a postcard?

I bet they make him Secretary of Agriculture now. Damn pig.

Whoa! Pony play is one thing but piggy play is another altogether!

Alas, it's one more pig in Washington.
