From the World of Art

Artist Died Handcuffed to Tree

The skeleton of one, Richard Sumner, who went missing about three years ago, was found recently handcuffed to a tree. Apparently, in a fit of madness - or artistic inspiration - he handcuffed himself to a tree and threw the key out of his reach. Probably after coming to his senses while sitting in the cold darkness thirsty and hungry, he attempted to free himself, but failed. The best quote about all this comes from pathologist, Brian Rogers, who said,

He could have been there for a few days. If you handcuff yourself to a tree you would die fairly quickly but maybe not as quickly as you would like.



Artists Erect a Gigantic Pink Bunny on Mountain Side

America is known for its giant balls of yarn and tin foil, and Italy is known for its giant, pink bunnies. The 200-foot-long toy rabbit lies on the side of the 5,000 foot high Colletto Fava mountain in northern Italy's Piedmont region. The plan is to keep it there for the next 20 years and knowing how wool smells after being left out in the rain, this thing is going to make one nasty stink. Hikers are encouraged to climb up the sides and relax on its tummy. A few years from now, I don't think I will be too keen on climbing a giant, mildew laden, faded from the weather, pink bunny. Eeewww, as little girls will say.

Ok, this has nothing to do with giant pink bunnies, but has everything to do with little girls saying ewwwww...

I took my younger sisters (in their teens) to watch Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. And that one scene where Willy Wonka is stiring the bugg juice in the bowl at the Umpa Lumpa's. A little girl (must have been 3 or so) says in a very audible tone.... "Eewww Ewww EWWWWWWWWWW". Most hilarious thing ever, it deffinetly made the movie experience perfect.
