Inflatable Dog Poo, Anyone?

Here's a breaking news story for you:


Inflatable Dog Poo Sculpture Wreaks Havoc

A modern art exhibit has wreaked havoc after blowing away from a museum in the Swiss city of Berne.

The exhibit in question, titled “Complex Sh*t”, was an inflatable dog turd the size of a house.

The exhibit, a sculpture by American artist Paul McCarthy, was blown loose from its moorings at the Paul Klee centre. An inopportune gust of wind then carried it 200 yards.

The giant inflatable stool brought down an electricity line and smashed a greenhouse window before eventually coming to rest in the grounds of a children’s home.

Representatives of the museum later revealed that McCarthy’s work of art had a safety system that would automatically deflate the inflatable turd in the event of a storm but admitted the device had failed to activate.


Someone please tell me it's April 1st or the inflatable sh*t's gonna hit the fan...


  1. Arf arf! You just KNOW it's true, Lara. You couldn't make that up, or did you...?

  2. Elinor, not even I could have made that one up!

  3. Ha! I saw that, too. Very funny story. It doesn't even look much like a poo.

  4. You know, Helen, I thought that too...
