$15 Million for an Ejaculating Cowboy

The New York Times was all abuzz over the $86.3 million sale of a triptych by Francis Bacon at a Sotheby's auction on Wednesday. I really don't give a crap because I don't even know what the hell a triptych is, and I'm too disinterested to type W-I-K-I-P-E-D-I-A into my address bar.

What's wrong with you, New York Times? Buried eight paragraphs down in the article is the announcement that Takashi Murakami's "My Lonesome Cowboy" sculpture sold for $15.1 million. The piece is an anime-style cowboy, fully naked, fully erect, and ejaculating a geyser of sperm into the air and over his head—a cloud of love juice in the sky. Now that's art.

View the sculpture here, pervs.

    I saw that when we went to the MOCA in LA. It was really awkward because that was the first sculpture upon entering the museum.


  3. Quin Browne Said,

    i gave to the kids.

    now, because you continually insult the artist i appreciate, while i never say a word about ZAC, you are tagged.

    fucking go look and write something.



    ps i was giggling so hard, i couldn't type the stupid security word
