Well, I guess I'm sort of joining you in defense of these "artists."

Frankly, we Freepers have been going on for some time (and rightly so) about public funding for bizzare art through the NEA and various publicly funded Arts Councils. We talk a good game about if they want to pursue their art, they need to do it on their own dime at their own risk.

As far as I can tell from the article, not one penny of public money is going to this "exhibit." If they can make a living at manipulating their manhood into hamburgers and Eiffel Towers, well so be it.

I'm not saying it's good art, but at least I'm not paying for it. I can live with that.

I certainly won't be attending, but I do admit to a being a little curious. The Eiffel Tower?

By the way, for a real artsy nude male theatrical extravaganza, I used to do my original Dance of the Flying Wanker for my wife when we were first married. It got rave reviews.

The "exhibit" is to be held at the county-operated Rosslyn Spectrum Theatre. I think the county should have a say on what is to be held in their public theater built with public money.

I wonder it the county board would allow a religious service to be held there. I believe that's also covered by the First amendment.

The hamburger is the one you don't want to see - makes me want to protectively cross my legs just thinking about it... Why? Er... don't know if you've heard the British expression 'meat and two veg' - but they twistthe veg! Urhhhher!

One problem I see is that the board members said they had no choice but to allow it. So the freedom has been taken away. Any "expression" -no matter how obscene, disgusting, perverse, or offensive - MUST be allowed, or the ACLU will be crawling down someone's throat.

But expressions of a religious nature? VERBOTEN!
