I love the crooked jaw; it really adds to the insanity.
I don't think it would be nearly as pleasing to see this man with a perfectly flawless grin.

Amazing. I love the expression. Oddly enough, this makes me want to giggle uncontrolably.

Four months ago I was in Hiroshima and what I saw was nothing funny, but I think that this painting captures the american vision about the atomic bomb and the irony with the foolish smile Very very nice work

Whew! strangely - I had to think of "Invader Zim" ...

This facial expression kinda makes me hear the tortured voice of Nick, the child with the happiness-probe in his brain... call me infantile, but that's, what I had to think of...

besides that, I appreciate this picture for it's ability to capture the absurd athmosphere of the nuclear threat and propaganda in the cold war ...

my apologies for the bad english

There's something decidedly disturbing about a deformed man missing half his cranium being amused by an atomic blast. [shivers] Beautifully weird, although I'm sure it looks even better in real life than photographed.

i've always been fascinated with the fact that man would put effort into destroying it's self.
atomic destinations in my opinion are one the most beautiful processes imaginable.

This reminded me of a Stephen King character from the Stand.

I like the inclusion of the frame.
