A Russian performance art collective has trousered a state-funded cash prize for painting a 65 metre fluorescent phallus on a St Petersburg bridge. Last July, nine Война ("War") activists took just 23 seconds to slap a todger on the bridge's road surface, which then rose majestically during the nightly bridge raising along the …
I don't know which I find more depressing. The fact that adults think painting a giant willy on a bridge is a work of art, or the fact that other adults gave them money for the act because they thought it was a work of art.
They'll be selling tins of sh1t next. What?

This is sad...
You grew up next to KGB headquarters then?
I don't think you've gotten the gist.
This is so full of WIN, the fact that it's across the way from a KGB building... ROFL and kudos to the russians from a US reader!
