This story made me LOL!!

http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20080811...landoffbeatart

"GENEVA (AFP) - A giant inflatable dog turd by American artist Paul McCarthy blew away from an exhibition in the garden of a Swiss museum, bringing down a power line and breaking a greenhouse window before it landed again, the museum said Monday.

The art work, titled "Complex S(expletive..)", is the size of a house. The wind carried it 200 metres (yards) from the Paul Klee Centre in Berne before it fell back to Earth in the grounds of a children's home, said museum director Juri Steiner.

The inflatable turd broke the window at the children's home when it blew away on the night of July 31, Steiner said. The art work has a safety system which normally makes it deflate when there is a storm, but this did not work when it blew away.

Steiner said McCarthy had not yet been contacted and the museum was not sure if the piece would be put back on display."


Wow, and inflatable peice of shit was breaking windows and scaring people. !!

It was funded by a grant from the National Endowment of the Art!

There was a giant ash tray at the Denver Museum of Fine Art several years ago. It cost the museum 10k and was filled with real cigarette butts. Thousands of them. Who wants to bet that the so called artist was lazy and wanted something he didn't have to empty once a week?
