Hillbillery Health Care & a Hand Not to Be Held (photos)

by Karen Zarker

4 December 2009

 

I was doing an image search for the concept of ‘caring for a sick friend’ (for a feature on caregivers), and this ‘Hillbillery’ image from Classical Values.com popped up on Google images. “End the Culture War by Restoring Classical Values” is the tagline of this site.  Scroll down and you’ll see an image of Hillary Clinton as button-busting SS officer. I’m amused, but thoroughly confused by the intent of this little site.

Dare you Google image search the concept of ‘hand in hand’ (you know, a sweet, sentimental gesture), after combing through pages of silhouette images of hetero couples on beaches at sunset, and babies hands in grown-ups hands, and old peoples’ hands holding hands with old people’s hands—you’ll soon encounter this nifty bit of photoshop work: ““Hand” by pavementfreud. The hand that bites the hand that feeds it? Hey buddy, can you give me a hand? Quit screwing around and hand over that work, already—we’re up against the deadline…
