PowerPoint Presentation:

The most: Parodied American Gothic  is the perfect example of being in the right place at the right time.  When it first came out it certainly did OK.  Magazines and newspapers reprinted the painting while it hanged comfortably in the Art Institute of Chicago but, with the onset of the Great Depression, it became something more to the people.  It became a symbol of an unwavering spirit in the face of adversity, celebrating the struggling Midwestern Americans who held their own during desperate times.  So naturally, with time, it became the most satirized piece of popular culture in the U.S. Name a franchise, character or location and chances are that there’s an existing  American Gothic  parody of it.  Yes, there’s a  Muppet  version.  Dexter?  Yeah, it exists.  Grim Fandango?  You betcha .  And yes, of course there’s a porn version of it.  That just goes without saying.
