Divine looks like a Spanish Dictator

I always thought Divine, the drag queen and actor who frequently appeared in John Waters films, didn’t look like anybody else. But it’s clear to me now that he’s the spitting image of 20th-century Spanish dictator Francisco Franco. He looks pretty nondescript and even a little glum. But add a little makeup, a dangly earring, and a wig, and voila!

Francisco Franco as Divine

This image began showing up unattributed on American and Spanish Twitter and Tumblr profiles in the last week.  To the currently anonymous visionary responsible for this piece of art: bravo!
