- Comments will be moderated. You will NOT see your comment appear immediately after posting!
- I post a butt and clues, you guess who that butt belongs to in the comments. If you guess right, you get 5 points.
- If you CORRECTLY identify the artistic work (title/artist) in question, you earn a bonus 5 points total: 2.5 for title, 2.5 for artist. (Provided of course, that it differs from the subject's name alone and the artist is known at all)
- The following Friday, I reveal the full backside image of the sculpture in question! If at this time you can correctly identify artist/title/subject of the piece, you can earn up to 3 points (total -- 1 point for artist, 1 point for title, 1 point for subject)
- You may guess artist/title/subject until the next round of NAME THAT BUTT begins. (Usually the next Tuesday -- I'll reveal the previous week's sculpture and offer the next butt for guessing!)
- I'll keep a running tally of correct answers/points, with occasional updates of who is "winning."
- For Olympians, Greek AND Roman names are acceptable for the subject guesses. For example, if the butt belongs to Mercury, I will also accept Hermes as a correct answer.
- A new NAME THAT BUTT may NOT be posted every week, depending on Things. And all Name That Butt photos belong to me (unless otherwise noted)! Please do not reuse without permission.
- There will be Prizes at the finish. They will be shipped internationally.
The Full Moons
And the final clue:
1) Both these Butts involve themselves in affairs of the heart.
Remember for this Double Butt, you must guess CORRECTLY both subjects! 2 points will be awarded for the correctly guessed butts, 1 point for the sculpture title and 1 point for the artist! That's an extra second-chance point this round for the extra butt involved! You have until 11:59 pm Eastern on Monday, November 10th to drop your guess in the comments! Go go go!

Ok, so the baby is Cupid? But he's not the son of Ares?ReplyDelete
Is love as the opposite of war what's confused things? ha. I suppose that's a subjective thought more than a fact so you'll have to forgive me!Delete
I think it was "counterpart" that threw me -- "opposite" I would totally get! But I was probably just overthinking things. :) Also, to be honest, I didn't know of the version of Eros' birth that says he's the son of Ares and Aphrodite -- I see, looking it up, that it does exist, but by far the most common versions have him born before or alongside Aphrodite; the other parent I knew for him was Zeus. But, clearly, again, I'm overthinking -- everyone else knew it had to be Venus and Cupid, because what other pairing would it be?!Delete
My guess is Aphrodite and Eros!ReplyDelete
