Viviane Castro Paints Obama on Her Body for Brazil Carnival
Viviane Castro, a Brazilian carnival queen famous for her skimpy attire, grabbed international headlines again for painting President Barack Obama's face on her body.
Castro paraded nearly nude with the U.S. leader's visage on her right thigh. She had Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva's face on her left thigh.
Many villagers recall that Castro appeared in last year's Rio Carnival parade wearing nothing but a strategically placed piece of tape 1 1/2-inches (4-centimeters) long, violating a little-enforced nudity rule and drawing a penalty for her samba group.
Yet another reason that John McCain is kicking himself for losing the presidential campaign last year!
