Artist Says She Made Pistol Out of Own Skin

Best quote:

"If everyone made a pistol from their own skin, I think they would think twice about using a gun. I think there would be less violence in the world," she said. "But it's not that easy. Violence will always exist."

Better to have a Ford made of skin than a Chevy made of tin...

Given Dutch gun laws, she's probably in jail by now.

OK -- apparently I'm in the minority on this issue, but I have to make one point.

A guy I work with took his new Trailblazer in because the bumper was loose and ratttling -- think it might've been a recall. They fixed it up, and when he asked what was done, he was told not to ask. When he kept pressing the issue, you know what the fix was? Velcro. I kid you not. There's velcro holding his GM product together.

Last time I checked, my Ford is velcro-free.

That's hilarious Ex!!

I guess to become more efficient on the vehicle production line, vehicles are starting to move from nuts and bolts, to metal clips, then to plastic clips, and well I guess the next logical step to speedy bumper attachment is velcro...

Amazing, Velcro the new Duct-tape!

Not to change topics and all but....

The art world is no stranger to controversy. A transvestite potter beat the creators of a pair of bronze sex dolls to land Britain's Turner art prize in 2003. A pickled sheep and a Virgin Mary figure made of elephant dung have also won the prize.

Sounds like Britain's Turner art prize isn't about honoring art. Calling this art, is like saying shock jocks advance broadcast media. Just because you can grab attention doesn't mean you have talent that should be honored.

Judge: Can you sculpt, paint, draw, anything?
Entrant: Nope, but I can do great things with elephant crap!

Maybe next year I'll smear some of my boogers on a napkin and call it "Martian Sunrise" and see if I win a prize.
