I would demand a refund.

That sounds pretty damned gruesome. Horror movies are made of less.

From the BBC:
Quote:
A giant inflatable dog turd brought down a power line after being blown away from a Swiss museum.

The artwork, entitled Complex Shit, was carried 200 metres on the night of 31 July, reportedly breaking a greenhouse window before it landed again.

The sculpture, by American artist Paul McCarthy, was equipped with a safety system that should have deflated it.

The fake faeces has been returned and will remain on display at the Zentrum Paul Klee in Bern until October.

McCarthy is well known for his inflatable artworks, two of which - Blockhead and Daddies Bighead - were displayed outside the Tate Modern in London in 2003.

dunno if it's true, but we'll find out Friday

http://www.smh.com.au/news/world/is-...307063964.html

Quote:
The search for Bigfoot is over, according to two US hunters who say they have found the body of the hairy ape-like creature and will back their claims up at a press conference tomorrow.

Matthew Whitton and Rick Dyer say they discovered the body in a forest in northern Georgia, a south-east US state, about two weeks ago.

The pair, who reportedly operate a Bigfoot tracking business, will present "DNA evidence and photo evidence of the creature" at a press conference in California tomorrow.

Photos already released on the internet show a large ape-like animal crammed into a freezer, where it was being preserved.
Quote:
The body is reportedly male, over two metres tall, weighs over 230 kilograms, has reddish hair, blackish-grey eyes and human-like teeth.

"I got to be honest, when I first saw it I hated to see it in that state it was in. I wanted to capture one so the world could see it walking. I guess this is the next best thing for the time being," he said.

He said a video filmed by the two men the day they found the body showed at least "three others walking upright like a man".

I'm sure someone is going to claim that this is their mother-in-law.

I'm kinda hoping that during the press conference, a reporter holds up a missing person report......

They'll present DNA evidence? What, we know who Bigfoot's parents are? Are they assuming he isn't human and would not have human DNA (so we'll think he's an ape) or are they assuming he's human and will have human DNA (and we'll think he's just a big hairy human.)

I'll be watching this unfold over the weekend, you can count on that! But you know, isn't there a little part in every one of us that hopes Bigfoot (and Nessie) are real?

We are frighteningly real. Emphasis on frighteningly.

An update on the Geogia Bigfoot article

http://www.associatedcontent.com/art...l?page=3&cat=8

Quote:
The long and short of it is this: the press conference was called to hype Tom Biscardi's internet talk show and both Bigfoot tracker businesses involved -- Searching For Bigfoot, Inc. and Bigfoot Tracker Atlanta. As is per usual in these cases, no real or hard evidence was presented, and, again as usual, promised at a later date. The public is left wanting, curious, and feeling a bit cheated (if of nothing other than their time). The Bigfoot press conference was nothing new and certainly produced nothing proving the existence of Bigfoot.
So basically, nothing is proven or disproven.
