Smelly? Like Ping-Pong?

Art Critics Kick Up A Stink

Photograph copyright: DAVID McMAHON



This photograph pays homage to a colleague of mine, who captured a memorable scene five years ago. It was mid-2002, and the NGV (National Gallery of Victoria) had just been given a makeover. A huge hoarding outside the Gallery said, ``Art like never before''. My colleague was walking past when he noticed someone had painted a prominent "F" in front of the word ``Art''.

Wonderful. Sorry about that.
Not participating in smelly since I don't have any pics nor I am willing to take one or see disgusting pics...but your take on the theme is great.

Thanks for stopping by and welcome back to mingle with us :-)

The Champagne is stillflooding over at Lifecruiser and the place is full of ghauls, witches and other scary blogger creatures.

So, having any blood vessels over for the vampires I've invited tonight?

*ghostly giggles*

Oh, and promise: no worms in the champagne glasses!!!

That brings back memories.
I used to pull pranks like that on a daily basis. I'll have to do a post about it.

It would be difficult to photograph a fart, only the reaction. There is a funny series of photos of the Royal Family with Philip dropping one. I am impressed that the Canadian Tourism Authority hired an Aussie to take photographs of Canada. Onya.
