Naked Performance With Dead Pig Branded "Sick"
Well, I suppose it depends on your definition of "sick," doesn't it? Not surprisingly, it's PETA objecting to an obscure performance art show in Penzance, England where a naked woman cradles a dead pig and viewers are shepherded into a room to observe one at a time. My favorite line: "In terms of the gallery's view, we feel very strongly that we should provide audiences in the region with opportunities to see the kind of works that they have to go to London to experience," the gallery head told Reuters. Exactly! Why should people have to go to London to see a naked woman cradling a dead pig? It ain't right!
