More On Austria's America-Bashing "Art"

Mild Content Warning.

It's not just the stupid menage-a-trois with Bush, Chirac, and the Queen.

Another part of the campaign features the American flag used as a, wait for it, burka. Which is both idiotic and disrespectful to the flag.

I don't get these artists. If they're so creative and talented, why do they just keep using shock-jock style "humor" that a 13-year-old would find a little beneath him?

I'm not offended by the sexual content; I'm more offended by the stupidity of it. You get a million Euro grant and the best you can come up with is a three-way involving politicians?

Artists are big on subtlety. That's why they deliberately made Brokeback Mountain so stultifyingly boring that even straight men were saying to themselves, "Just eff him already! Just so there's something happening in this stupid movie!" That's the genius of Brokeback Mountain -- so tedious and slow that heterosexuals begin asking, "Please, let's just get to the gay sex, okay?"

And yet when it comes to politics, they're about as subtle as sledgehammer to the small of the back.

The last pic on Dan's site is, well, pretty effective, I must say. Sort of makes me hope this whole European Union thing works out.
