This is a shitty post.

I worked for an hour last night on a piece that just simply went to shit when I put it on paper and I was left with nothing to give you this morning. I hate to leave you empty-handed so here's a funny story about a turd that I just read in the news:

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.


I also went out and found these other turd related items that I hope will entertain you:

Oh dear, I just read Mjenks' fart post and now this. I'm laughing too hard to comment.

I hate it when I write something and it ends up sucking. Oh wait, never mind, that's never happened to me.

HAHA, I jest, I jest.

Is that story true? For real and true? That is hilarious- and I LOVE that you included Turd McFerguson as your picture. Excellent.

My friends and I used to be obsessed with

It's kind of like "hot or not" but brown and squishy.

You cannot post that amazing photo of Norm MacDonald doing Burt Reynolds and then say it's a shitty post. Not possible! That cracks me up so hard.
