Carnival, or Fat Tuesday, is being celebrated across much of the world, and a woman in Brazil made as big a splash as she could to add to local festivities.
Viviane Castro paraded nearly nude in Sao Paulo early Saturday with an image of President Barack Obama on her right thigh. Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva's face was on her left thigh.
Castro is a Brazilian carnival queen famous for her skimpy attire, and this year's painting of Obama's face on her body is getting more than the usual attention.
