My oldest brother, Ken, is a professional freelance graphic artist. Once while visiting he asked to use us to recreate American Gothic, the famous painting by Iowan Grant Wood. I didn't have a pitchfork, so I grabbed the weed whacker. We couldn't remember how the couple in the painting were standing so we guessed. Naturally, we guessed wrong.
Epilogue: Since this photo was taken the cat (in the background), sadly, passed away, Lisa and I are no longer together, and the house was sold. I still have the weed whacker, though.
Below is an image of the original painting.
