Day 102 - Onionbombing

Day 102.

I know you guys are probably sick of me and my onions by now, but they are really all I can think about lately. I literally see, smell, and breathe onions. I mean, I should probably throw them away soon--but what a waste, right? Still can't find a food pantry or homeless shelter that will just accept a garbage bag full of chopped onions from some guy... if anyone know of any other things I can do with the onions, let me know. In the meantime, I have been using them to create a new internet meme (or at least, a super lame version of one).

I'm not sure if you all are familiar with photobombing, but Urban Dictionary defines it as "An otherwise normal photo that has been ruined or spoiled by someone who was not supposed to be in the photograph." (Wow, that's a surprisingly tame definition by Urban Dictionary standards. Whatever you do, DO NOT search for "birmingham booty call" *chuckles to self as everyone searches for "birmingham booty call"*)

Hint: It has nothing to do with Birmingham.

Anyways, I think photobombing is pretty funny. And so does the rest of the internet. So I figured if photobombing can catch on, why not ONIONBOMBING?

Onionbombing: An otherwise normal photo that has been ruined or spoiled by onions.

In the spirit of Julie & Julia, my first attempt at onionbombing was at an art gallery of sorts. You know, like the one Paul Child puts on in the movie?

That is some damn good art.
That is some damn good Roy William Gardner.

Oh, and I didn't just go to any art gallery. I am privileged enough to be just a stone's throw away from one of the most badass art museums ever--I am talking about The Art Institute of Chicago, of course. If you've ever been there before, you'll know that the place is huge and impossible to see in a day. However, it is possible to onionbomb a bunch of famous works of art with your friend's iphone while the security guys aren't looking.

Yo Pablo Picasso, you've just been onionbombed!
Twice! Take that "The Old Guitarist!"
What's that, "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte?"
You hate onions? Well, too bad!!
No one can escape! Not even you, "American Gothic!"

So yeah, it's not quite the same as photobombing--it's just pictures of me holding up a bag of onions next to priceless works of art--but you get the idea. Photos + Onions = Hilarious. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to onionbomb the VanGogh self-portrait or Nighthawks because there were too many people/security guards watching. You've got to be mad sneaky (and a little insane) to do this.

And yes, I realize that some people might think I am desecrating these artistic masterpieces by exposing them to pungent onion fumes, but cut me some slack here. At least I did not take the onions out of my little ziploc baggy and rub them over the "American Gothic" farmer's face or anything. I mean, I get it. Art should not be trivialized by onions. I understood that after getting all those dirty looks from the legitimate fine art connoisseurs around me. But was it worth it in the end? Totally.

And on that note, I hope that I may inspire you all to Onionbomb things of your own! Your photos don't have to be Julie & Julia-related (though it's preferable), but I'd really like to see this become the start of a big grassroots movement or something. Just send me photos of you with onions in places where onions don't belong and I'll publish them on the blog.

  1. birmingham booty call just had me laughing for at least 4 minutes, that shit is hilarious. literally.

  2. Instead of throwing them out, you could freeze them, but uh, unless you make a lot of soups and chilis and such, you still wouldn't be able to use up your current stock in the next year, lol.

    And I think Picasso would totally dig your onions. How could he resist?

  3. you should involve the museum in more posts. find works of art that look like scenes from the movie, or find subjects who look like Meryl or Amy...

  4. in the spirit of wasting time, and trying to vaugly tie down your current onion gimmick to j nd j, maybe try creating works of julie and julia fan art... thru ONIONS. badass i no
