Archaeology Exhibit Punk'd

A self-styled "art terrorist" calling himself Bansky slipped this prehistoric rendering of a hunter-gatherer milling down the aisles at Wal-Mart, looking for the on-sale boxes of brontosaurus burgers, into an exhibit at the British Museum.

The faux artifact remained in the exhibit for "quite some time," he says, until he tipped the Museum off by posting about the prank on his website.

Kind of funny, but if my experience is any guide, no one looks very carefully at this shit in museums anyway. You see one rock or sarcophagus and you've pretty much seen them all.

You could slip in an aged VHS copy of Steven Seagall's Hard to Kill among the flints used to hunt prehistoric aurochs and no one would take notice. (Interestingly, no one took any notice of the actual release of Hard to Kill, either.)

If you want to impress me, slip a Rennaissance-style oil painting of the guys from Foghat on to the wall in the Dutch masters section. Then I'll give you big props.

Thanks to LauraW.
