Amusing Photo of the Day: The toilet as art

From The Globe and Mail: "Visitors take photographs of a waterfall made of recycled toilet bowls and urinals at a park in Foshan, China."

Actually, those aren't recycled toilet bowls and urinals, they are toilet bowls and urinals.

"The object of art," wrote Shakespeare, "is to give life a shape." Well, there you go.

  • I see your toilet ... and raise you one.

  • Perhaps a cynical comment on the urinal presented by Marcel Duchamp at the 1917 Society of Independent Artists exhibit and titled "fountain."

    Is there much to Post Modernism but cynicism and is a cynical reference to a cynical reference somehow cynicism squared, or does it cancel out? Anyway, it's really not so funny after a hundred years.
