Nude Stephen Harper portrait is better than we ever imagined

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Stephen Harper naked! We honestly never thought we'd be writing those words—let alone with any kind of enthusiasm—but there ya go.

      Kingston-based artist Margaret Sutherland has created a nude portrait of Canada's prime minister—and it's kind of totally awesome.

      Entitled Emperor Haute Couture, the painting is currently on display until May 29 in the Wilson Room of the Kingston Frontenac Public Library's central branch. No word on whether it will be added to the Canada Science and Technology Museum's Sex: A Tell-all Exhibition.

      Want to own this slice of Canadiana? It can be yours for $5,000. Hmm, heritage minister James Moore's birthday is coming up soon…

      "All the members of the govt have bodies." LOL How i would love to see this join the other portraits of PMs lining the halls of Parliament. With that caption underneath!

      Yikes! Del Tomaso will be having fits as wellas will Moore. I hope the artist won't count on funding from the latter!
      Good to see the metaphor of the Emperor wearing no clothes! Let's hope the voters will see the truth as well!

      The painting was made to discourage young people from having sex

      That Smirk is killer. Maybe some Tim Horton's dripped - The rod looks a little reddish?

      Any image of the PM is disturbing, seeing him in the nude, in a painting or in a photo makes me throw up. Why can't we ever have a hot looking PM?
