  1. Dear Uncle:

    Chi chi, such pornography first thing in the morning. If you must post such filth…at least make it Megan Fox-related, like that nice Uncle Samanth.

    The connect is Io, Callisto, Ganymede and Europa — the four main Jovian moons. These paintings show those eponymous figures from Greek myth.

    Kind regards,
    Thomas Masun
