A Few Questions Regarding Some Controversial Art
According to a recent Reuters news story, the above sculpture... which, as you can see, depicts a crucified frog holding an egg and a beer mug... has been condemned by the Pope as blasphemous. Herewith, some discussion questions regarding the situation, as well as the object du art itself...
-What, the Pope's got NOTHING better to do than sit around condemning art all day? I mean, shouldn't he be telling the gays where to get off or glossing over stories of handsy priests? At the very least, it seems that his time would be better spent scouring the Vatican yellow pages for a haberdashery with reasonable rates.
-Art? More like FART!!! HA HA HA HAHA HA HAHA HA!!! Goddammit I should write for the New York Motherfucking Times or some shit! So, so talented... anyway, but yeah that's an ugly sculpture. All green and whatever. And the face looks like YOUR MOM HA HA HA HAHA HA HA HA HAHAHA!!!! *SNAP*
-So, does anyone actually know what happens when the Pope condemns something? Like, does it get struck by lightning from Jesus or locked away with the DaVinci Code in a vault somewhere? Or is it really just that the Pope gets all huffy, bangs his Pope-gavel a few times, and that's it? Yeah, I bet it's the last one. Pope all red-faced and stomping around his palace, threatening to hold his breath 'til he turns blue n' junk... he's just cranky because he missed his nap. His Pope-nap.
-Hey! Hey Mr. Frog Guy!!! Why don't you give me some of that beer?!?! C'mon, share ya beer!!! You can keep the egg. But the beer, man... the beer!!! Help a brother out, you warty bastard!
