Is this the face that launched a thousand photoshops? UPDATED

 Faust.  Was this the face that launched a thousand ships
And burnt the topless  towers of Ilium?
Sweet, make me immortal with a kiss.  [Kisses her.]
Her lips suck forth my soul; see where it flies! --
Come, come, give me my soul again.

-- Marlowe, Christopher. Doctor Faustus.

One is speaking, of course, of our latter day Helen of Troy, ye right honorable first beard first lady of the Disunited States, Michelle Obama. Her "official" second term portrait was just released and is provided here as source material. (Standard "can't unsee the seen" warning applies.) Play nice.

Geez, does she have a glass eye?

I can't join the people who mock her appearance, she looks OK; but for God's sake why must we all suffer the burdens of her idiotic unAmerican ideas and her even more evil and tyrannical husband?

When I think about the vast stupidity and ignorance that put these people in this position .... our country is truly mentally ill, culturally diseased.

They and their ancient kind are damaging not just us, but the entire world.

Please O God, get these monsters out of our lives!!

Could you please enlighten a poor ignorant foreigner as to which clause of your glorious constitution authorizes the expenditure of tax money on "Official Photographs" of an unelected person? For expensive vacations for a relative of an elected person?

The good thing is that the great evil that is America is dying.

All things considered, she actually cleans up pretty well.

Proving again that beauty is only skin deep, while ugly goes clear through to the bone.

Honestly, I would never guess that she could have such a pleasant face, ever. Never mind the idea of it cracking her skin.

At least we don't turn to stone when we see her visage.

Larry: Photoshop in capable hands is an amazing tool.

My first thought was alarm. In part it was the glass eye, then the overwhelming amount of lip gloss. Could she of chosen a prettier top? It looks like a jersey t-shirt.

She must be getting ready to go on the Jerry Springer show with her new wig.

Posted by: Clara Belle at February 20, 2013 9:52 PM

That may look like a jersey she's wearing, but I bet she spent $2000-$5000 on it.

You know, we all have to have some skin in the game.

Those painted on eyebrows are hideous.

For those of you who think she's attractive...your standards are too low. Woof.

You blew the perfect opportunity for a Rodger King of France, roll over! Juss sayin. . . .

Thank heavens her arms are covered.... for once.

A tooth (plural teeth) is a mignonne, calcified, whitish structure initiate in the jaws (or mouths) of many vertebrates and used to defeat down food. Some animals, strikingly carnivores, also partake of teeth for hunting or owing defensive purposes. The roots of teeth are covered by means of gums. Teeth are not made of bone, but to a certain extent of multiple tissues of varying density and hardness.

The general systematize of teeth is nearly the same across the vertebrates, although there is of distinction modifying in their form and position. The teeth of mammals have serious roots, and this figure is also initiate in some fish, and in crocodilians. In most teleost fish, regardless how, the teeth are partial to to the outer surface of the bone, while in lizards they are fastened to the inner surface of the jaw during the same side. In cartilaginous fish, such as sharks, the teeth are attached beside tough ligaments to the hoops of cartilage that type the jaw.
