Back Off, Missy, That's a Man's Makeup!

Okay, so I'm straying to some interesting corners of the web, and I run across a cover version of Ikenai Rouge Magic done by a... wait for it... wait for it... done by a girl!!!

Jumpin' J-pop on a pogo stick! Everybody knows that the burrow owl lives in a hole in the ground Ikenai Rouge Magic is about men's makeup... it's about makeup machismo, and the glam rock lifestyle. It's not supposed to be sung by a girl! There's nothing macho about the preceding video... the heavily made-up face of badass masculinity looks like this:

What's this world coming to? Everywhere you look, male privilege is toppling like an impotent phallus. Hell, even the He Men Women Haters' Club has female leaders now.

Of course, the title of the post is ripped off from one of my favorite B. Kliban cartoons:

B. Kliban's work was instrumental in the development of my admittedly warped sense of humor- while still in high school, I bought a copy of The Biggest Tongue in Tunisia and never looked back (I wouldn't have seen anything with that tongue in the way). While his pictures of kittehs were at one time ubiquitous, it's his surrealistic works that appeal to me. Here's a good selection of some of his work.

I was looking for a youtuber video of the "makeup" scene from Fahrenheit 9/11, but only came up with Wolfowitz' "spit on the comb" moment.
