Just Wrong

Mike went to Versailles during his time in Paris.

1 of 8 went to Versailles with her visiting BFF a couple of weeks ago.

And among the gilded galleries of that fantastical palace was an art exhibit of, um, video games proportions.

Nothing makes that spotlighted old Pepsi-can-ensconced-in-an-evil-Pac-Man-mouth sparkle like 18th century damask wallpaper behind it...

Maybe I'm not visionary enough. Maybe I'm too predictable in my art display expectations.

But I really hate to see Rococo and Nintendo wrestle like this...
