Bush of Monkeys

The Immoral Minority

It's times like these when I am proud to be a New Yorker...

An artist has made a painting of Dubya out of many pictures of monkeys. It was censored of course and the NY gallery was forced to close the exhibit down. But some awesome donors paid for the painting to be digitized above the Holland Tunnel for all to see. And the original will be sold on ebay with part of the proceeds donated to parents of US soldiers who wish to supply their sons and daughters with body armour in Iraq. So classic!

Here are the stories from the British press: http://www.guardian.co.uk/arts/news/story/0,11711,1378985,00.html and http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/arts/4117059.stm

May your days be merry and bright... Happy holidays everyone!
