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!

"Yet another reason that John McCain is kicking himself for losing the presidential campaign last year!" lol!!! First, no airforce 1 and now no leg...yeah, I'd say Lt. Dan is a little salty right in through here...lol

Well it's pretty tame considering it's Carnival in Brazil.

Besides she could have put the painting on a different body part.

Sojourner - I still break out in a smile whenever I see you refer to John McCain as 'Lt. Dan'!

Mike - Tame is in the eye of the beholder...

Thanks very much, Villager, for the shout out in a prominent place on your blog. I appreciate it very much.

And this needs to be said correctly in Sesotho, my mother tongue: Kea leboha, ntate.

Hey Villager!

OK, so I found Obama. But now what I wanna know is where's Waldo...?

As for McCain kicking himself? He needn't feel bad. Because if he had won? Still no picture of him on a beautifil Brazilian woman's thigh. Never happen. The woman obviously cares about her body and, which means she would never allow it to be defiled.

Rethabile - Thank you for the kind words. My hope is that this blog can continue to help promote and support various bloggers of color in the afrosphere. I'm glad that some eyeball will find you as a result of this sidebar feature...

Keith - You actually made me look again at her body paintings to see where Waldo may have been hidden (smile)! The remarkable thing is that my blog traffic tripled yesterday as a resut of this blog post. I guess it's true... sex sells!

McCain's face would never be on a beautiful woman's body...lol. Obama fans seem to be significantly better looking than his. Its too bad McCain ran a terrible campaign, I thought he was okay when he first ran for president.

Floacist - One thing about long campaigns ... it is hard to hide the flaws. McCain's lack of knowledge about the economy came to the forefront at the end of the 2008 campaign. Hmmm.... I wonder if Sarah Palin would have painted McCain's face on her thigh? After all, without McCain ... there would be no Palin!
