Shrove Tuesday: Obama As Pancake Head

Today is Shrove Tuesday, also known as Fat Tuesday, the last day before the Lenten Fast begins in the Christian calendar. Pancakes are a traditional food for Shrove Tuesday; typically they're served laden with butter and syrup and yummy jelly. Ob Fo loves this painting of Barack by Dan Lacey, Painter of Pancakes, and today is the perfect day for it. Mr. Lacey has an impressive oeuvre of celebs and politicos with pancakes on their heads; click the link to explore.
