Why does it look like they are doing bodyshots off their dead buddy?

Yeah, I don't think the texture on their collars is quite right. The men in the original painting don't appear to be wearing wool collars.

As others have said, I really don't get how this quite equates with the original. The cadaver in the painting was being dissected...just what exactly is being done to this gingerbread man? Somehow pouring a white substance (is it icing or milk?) on top of his body doesn't seem to be that much of an anatomy lesson. And why are they all so dang happy? Should have gone with the original expressions. (Maybe those are kind of hard to do with gingerbread men though, I dunno.)

So are those coats fur-lined or frosting-lined? Looks like it could be either one.

I've been wondering the same thing since I saw the artwork last night, and I just finally thought - would you dissect a gingerbread man? Or dissolve him? In that case, the milk would be in place of a knife and is how we're getting into the cadaver. Softening him up so he doesn't just go all to crumbs, you know. It makes a certain amount of sense, I think - but if that's the intent it would be a lot less ambiguous if the milk were being poured on his chest or arm instead of his crotch. I can see how that would be tricky to do compositionally, though.

As to the expressions, yeah, I thought so too - but it might be harder to grasp that they're gingerbread men without the typical faces. Still, they're awfully creepy!

Maybe after this, they'll all go home to their windmill cookie homes.

Oh the Dutch....

Maybe the gingerbread man is just passed out and his friends are just playing a perverted joke on him.

As a pathologist, I can't believe I almost missed this one. In before the buzzer.

I understand the art parody, but I don't get it ...

If you don't know the original artwork this probably looks something like a group of necrophiliac gingerbread men with a milk fetish.



Is the piece THAT unknown? I certainly wouldn't necessarily remember the title, but the image is incredibly familiar.

Then again, I recently took a class where no one knew that tragedy tends to end with death. Maybe I'm just outdated.

This post might be the single biggest conundrum I've ever encountered on these boards.

Every day I'm more and more grateful my parents had me read the uncensored Grimm's Fairy Tales as a kid.

This shirt sells a mere 381, yet today's hot dog sells out 3000 by 10:00 AM.

We are a bunch of uncultured swine, aren't we?

The hog dog one is a somewhat clever and familiar reference. This one makes no sense whatsoever. Whatever the gingerbread men are doing, it's not studying anatomy...

Milk makes cookies soggy. I imagine that might interest gingerbread man scientists, who might want to test a corpse since pouring milk on a live gingerbread man might produce a mortal wound.

Seriously, it's not hard to figure out, and it's far, far, far from "making no sense whatsoever".

I literally am obligated by name to get this shirt at any cost. I may share the famous Doctor's name. I am so upset I missed this last November.

What does it take to get this shirt?

Where do I have to fly and who do I have to go down on?
