Poopapocalypse Strikes Switzerland

Some shit has fallen on a children’s home in Bern, Switzerland. No, not a torrential downpour of Hannah Montana DVDs, but rather “Complex Shit” — a large inflatable piece of dog poop fashioned by American artist Paul McCarthy. The work was on display as part of the Paul Klee Centre’s outdoor exhibition “East of Eden: A Garden Show,” and was designed to deflate in case of adverse weather. However, it failed to do so. Instead, “Complex Shit” was carried by a gust of wind until it hit power lines and descended, breaking the window of a nearby children’s home. Although the fate of this synthetic animal waste as a continued part of “Eden” looks tenuous at best, its flight remains upstaged by the flying penis that nearly grazed Russian politician Gerry Kasparov.
