"TacObama POwer and the Hula HOOps of HOpe!"
by Taco Werewolf
The letter "O" has many different expressive pOwers, both as a vowel in verbal and written speech, and in its roundness for use in the visual arts. In this commissioned painting, I began with the image of Michelle Obama hula hOOping on the White HOuse lawn, and this became the inspiration for a joyful portrait I wanted to make of my subject as he hula hOOped in his clean, white underwear underneath the warming rays of hOpe and the TacObama sun. With a gorgeous, underwear-clad Michelle Obama to your left and President Obama to your right-- the power of O can surely fill one with delight! Then as the power of "O" spins round and round against your hips, you begin to crave a tacO to cram between your lips! Hahahahaa.
And how fortunate was it that on the day this painting's subject was invited to hula hoop in his underwear with the Obamas, that the White House was visited by a traveling circus act from Mexico! These talented Mexican acrobats were trained to perform the almost unbelievable act of eating tacos and hula hooping at the same time! After awhile of showing off their skills, one of the circus performers asked our subject, "Do you think you can hula hoop and eat a taco at the same time?" To this our subject became frightened and nervous. He replied, "I don't know about that, it sounds dangerous!" That is when our inspiring President, our great leader, TacObama, took our subject behind the White House and placed his hand upon his forehead while whispering to him, "YES YOU CAN!!" A reddish-orange glow the shade of hot sauce and like the sun then began to emanate from our subject's head. He became filled with confidence, conviction and HOpe that yes, he could indeed do it, that he could EAT A TACO AND HULA HOOP AT THE SAME TIME! So you see that anything is possible with the TacObama POwer and the Hula HOOps of HOpe!
