Apparently there is a debate raging in the econoblogosphere, sparked by Bryan Caplan regarding the level of freedom the Amish, and specifically Amish women, enjoy. Adam Ozimek decidied to throw in his two cents, and asked me to do a photomanip of Bryan as an Amish guy. This is what I came up with:
I’m pretty happy with the results. Also, just to clarify: I realize that photomanips featuring American Gothic are waaay overdone, but I couldn’t find a good stock image of an Amish guy, even though I had a much better idea…and, I also realize that the subjects of the American Gothic painting probably were not Amish.
I may throw my hat in the debate, as I have a point that I haven’t seen made yet, but it will have to wait for another day!

Update: Here is the reference image.
Update 2: I decided I didn’t like the placement of the hat on Bryan’s head, so I moved it. You can view the original image here.
