Oh, Crap!

I've been fighting a cold for what seems like weeks now, and since I feel like crap, I figured what better topic to post about.

Daniel Edwards, the sculptor that brought us the original Britney Spears money shot, or as it's better known, "Monument to Pro-Life: The Birth of Sean Preston", has once again reached into his celebrity bag o' tricks to create, "Suri's bronzed baby poop".

Yes, Edwards made a bronze sculpture depicting the first "poop", from the offspring of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. The sculpture was rumored to have auctioned on eBay, although I could not confirm the sale or the price.

"Suri's bronzed baby poop" is crap, literally and figuratively. I much prefer Piero Manzoni's, Merda d'artista (artist's shit), 1961. Manzoni canned ninety tins of shit, each to be sold for its equivalent weight in gold. I'll take artist's wit over pseudo-celebrity shit, any day of the week, and twice on Sunday.
