Congratulations this week to Sharon for her Beach Boys quote! A humorous line that takes on a somewhat ominous tone in this context, thanks!

House of Cards, Season 3, episode 3, 10:07

“Everybody’s gone surfin’…
Surfin’ U.S.A.”

– Beach Boys, Surfin USA

Title: Surfboard

Description: Newly minted president Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) faces international matters. This image depicts his literal standoff with the Russian president, Viktor Petrov. A surfboard stands erect between them, while a funny moment takes a dark turn. Does this symbol suggest – or poke fun at – the idea that politics is a man’s world?

Next piece up tomorrow! Keep tabs on the project and contest at the project website here, or review the project over at the previous post here.
