    I vaguely remembered what you were talking about HC. Had to google to bring back the full awfulness of the details. For those who don’t know, HFC is referring to a art museum exhibit in NYC about ten years ago called “Sensation” which featured an icon of the Virgin Mary spattered with elephant dung.

    I love how gaudy that is. It wouldn’t look out of place at Graceland.

    Nice work!

    I remember like it was yesterday when I was in art school with Hippie and I was making fun of this guys artwork.
    We were in this weird part of the school that had this odd space and there was a guy setting up a show.
    He had a portrait of the band The Commodores that was done with sparkles in the paint to emulate their clothes. It was horrendous.
    I was trying not to laugh when Hippie turned to me and said the guy was on a full ride.
    I was suddenly trying not to smash the entire exhibit with a 2″x4″
    Let me say this. The guy was a great guy. He looked a lot like Obama in college.
    This was not his fault. This was the fault of counselors and admissions who told this guy he was good. It wasted 4 years of his life and lots of resources.

    I remember that, Fur. The exhibit was at the end of the final semester and I remember him sinking while looking at all the other work, which was world’s better than his. I still remember him saying “Oh man. What am I doing here?” It was heartwrenching. He was a good guy who deserved honesty 4 years earlier. Just another case of progressives condescending to and ultimately devastating a black person…nothing new there. -HC

    BFH and HC, I am so glad that you guys made it out of art school not indoctrinated in the liberal thought process as so may young people are today. It shows strength in character to resist the leftist agenda while at a vulnerable age which is usually at about collage age. Thus the young idiots who vote for Obama and socialism, they just don’t know any better because the collages and universities are filled with liberal twits instructing kids to be liberal twits just like them.

    First we had “Piss Christ”, a true work of art. Now we have “Pachyderm Shit Mohammed”, a tour-de-farce. Brilliant! And it does indeed deserve an NEA grant, if anything does.

    @Hippie Critic,

    When I looked at your artwork last night, I thought the testicles were little hearts or butterflies! I was tired, I guess! :) I love it!!
