Michael Landon and the squid

There is clearly no point trying to think of a clever headline for this one. Behold “The Anguish” — a painting by the extremely cool artist Brandon Bird. The caption on his web site is:

My sister’s husband says Michael Landon refused to cut his hair because his father’s name was Sam, and he felt this literally made him “Sam’s son.”

It’s already sold, unfortunately.

(Thanks to Brian Corcoran for this one!)
