The tragic/demented/whatever-it-is story of Cecilia Gimenez has entered a new phases of its pop culture notoriety when last night Stephen Colbert of The Colbert Report took on the Spanish restoration “master.”
She showed a “can-do attitude about things she clearly cannot do,” he says in the segment. “You could say my kid could paint that, but not if your kid had seen a human face.”
Though the joke about the upcoming Dan Brown novel (pictured left) might be my favorite.
Thank you, Colbert!
