I took OB's as a pretty good riposte, nothing more, with no offense taken.

We were on tour this summer when we happened upon the Musée Courbet in Ornans, France, so that we paid it a visit.

Courbet is best known to the general public for his painting "The Origin of the World." WARNING: NSFW! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L%27Origine_du_monde

The original is in Paris, in the Musée d'Orsay, so that the Musée Courbet only has a reproduction, and it is concealed under a small curtain that the viewer, having been warned beforehand, has to lift to view. Hot stuff!

God help us all if Vice President Pence is ever on an official visit to Ornans, when that museum is a real source of civic pride and thus something he would be sure to visit. "Nice pictures you got here, all these landscapes, but what is under this little curtain? Aaah! Burn it; burn it with fire! Get thee behind me, Satan!"
