Giant Inflatable WHAT???

I Am In The Wrong Line Of Work...

Y'know, there's just some things you never expect to read in a news article.

High up on that list? Giant Inflatable Dog Turd.

I shit you not:

Flying piece of art causes museum chaos in Switzerland

A giant inflatable dog turd by American artist Paul McCarthy blew away from an exhibition in the garden of a Swiss museum, bringing down a power line and breaking a greenhouse window before it landed again, the museum said Monday.
The art work, titled "Complex S(expletive..)", is the size of a house. The wind carried it 200 metres (yards) from the Paul Klee Centre in Berne before it fell back to Earth in the grounds of a children's home, said museum director Juri Steiner.

Journalism has changed somewhat in the last few years. I wonder how the New York Times would have reported this. Enormous Pneumatic Canine Fecal Sculpture?
