back to article Russians honour 65-metre fluorescent phallus

A Russian performance art collective has trousered a state-funded cash prize for painting a 65 metre fluorescent phallus on a St Petersburg bridge.

Depressing

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 can pay him back then!

"Война now has 400,000 roubles (£8,730) to spunk on further artistic protests, thanks to a National Centre for Modern Art award"

Tut tut;

Tut tut Gerhardt; you're attempting to be smutty. I'm sure you're well aware that Ardgay is not pronounced to rhyme with "gay"; correct local pronunciation rhymes it with "Hard Guy".

Cripes.

Does this mean...

...that so many of the kids I grew up alongside are owed about £4m in back-awards?

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!
