Merde! He Wrote

A giant inflatable dog dropping created by the American artist Paul McCarthy was blown from its moorings at a Swiss museum, bringing down a power line and breaking a window before landing in the grounds of a children's home.
The exhibit is the size of a house and has a safety system that is supposed to
deflate it in bad weather.
It is part of an exhibition called East of Eden: A Garden Show, which features sound sculptures in trees and a football ground without goalposts.

An exhibition curated by Dr Strabismus (Whom God Preserve) of Utrecht?

For the next month and a half those boys will tell anyone who'll listen that their home was covered in dog poop. Giant dog poop, in fact!

Ah memories. What did you think of the Bridge to Terabithia movie? I loved it but there are dissenting voices.

Hmm, nope, did not see that one. I'm sure it is a powerful story, but I just couldn't bring myself to go see that... Did it include a giant dog poop?
