Annals of the art world, division of academic foolishness. “Dear Studio Faculty, Security came to my office this morning and said that they found a bucket with what appears to be medical waste in it in Driscoll Dining Hall. They thought it might an art project. It has been turned over to Health Services for testing to see if it’s real. Does anyone know of any such art project?” It doesn’t sound (smell?) as artistic as Piero Manzoni’s 1961 canned poop, but anything goes nowadays….

Personally, I would like to see a piece of “art” that is an image of Barack Obama in a jar of dog shit. Just to see if anyone could point out the difference.

A Cape Cod poem.

A Provincetown painter named Jeff
Was colorblind, crosseyed, and deaf
When he asked to be touted
The critics all shouted
“This is Art with a capital F!”

I’m tellin’ you, people: this is a groovy book:

“The Umbrella of the Gardener’s Aunt is in the House.”

http://www.amazon.com/Umbrella-Gardeners-House-story-Christmas/dp/0976808862/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1357982623&sr=8-4&keywords=umbrella+of+the+gardener

It’s about a culture clash between a small town church and an insane “artist” who works with poop as his medium.

The author’s a Tacoma boy!

@ RKae, while our ‘solutions’ to the problem don’t always agree, I think you know where my heart is. I can separate the emotions from ‘how do we make this work’ politics, come across as cold at times. Start with an old book called ” A Child is Born”, pass it on as they say, but the fight in the public arena is different. That’s where we disagree, how to win hearts and minds. But this, I think you’ll like

womb-at-14-weeks-into-pregnancy/

That being said, I only disagree with you at times on tactics, ok? My 19 year old is kicking this whole thing around in her head at times, and that’s a good thing. We don’t need to browbeat people, just lay out the facts. And I think we’re winning, just look at the ‘medias’ shrillness.

And one more thing, I write short stories for my own amusement, never show them to anyone… but I have to ask; you know how ‘they’ always say “don’t hitch hike” you never know who’ll pick you up?

And ‘they’ always say, ” don’t pick up a hitcher, you never know who’ll you pick up?

Working on a story where a crazy stalker picks up a psycho-bitch hitcher. You always told me to write right, punctuation and usage, even if it was just for fun, Thanks.

Hmmm. About $80,000 for a can of poop. Instead of minting 1 trillion dollar coins, Turbotax Timmy should start canning poop to store in Ft. Knox to back up the currency he, Obama and Bernacke are making worthless. A ready source is at hand from the DC pols and media. They’re full of it! Eleventy cans ought to solve the deficit problem. A truly fitting legacy for the reign of O.

I don’t see a whole lot of difference between what’s in the can, and what flows from “Dear Leader’s” mouth. Except maybe the can’s worth more.

Speaking of small cans……………
I do truly admire them!
