    Gold toilet stolen in Blenheim Palace burglary

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-englan...shire-49700620

    How anyone can pretend an exhibit like this is art leaves me baffled. It is perhaps social commentary but it has no artistic merit in the slightest. To describe the representation of a clever conceit as art is to miss the point.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.
    From the upper tier of the Leppings Lane End of the Hillsborough Stadium, I watched the events of that day unfold with horror.

    I remember this toilet when it first went on display. What happen? people lose interest in it and now they have to make a big deal out of it again? I think the person who stole this apparent "art work" should be congratulated.

    I agree, Spot. It wasn't art. That's why I melted it down right away.

    The thieves must be devoutees of Lord Baden-Powell who have taken their Slogan to heart.

    I would hope he taught them to travel lighter. My trowel-and-paper in a double-seal bag weighs 40g which is a lot less than a spetsnaz shovel (370g without paper!) though I'd not like to hold off a platoon of territorials with mine.
