A Stephen Harper nude is provoking hilarious reactions on Twitter.

The Margaret Sutherland painting is in the news because it is currently being displayed at a Kingston Library. The image has triggered a torrent of reaction on social networks and given birth to the Twitter hashtag #NudeHarperCaptions.
