Penis Art

At the risk of being NSFW, I offer the following puerile observation.

On my recent tour of the "upper High Line" area, I passed a gallery exhibit entitled NAKED! A better title would be PENIS! because all of the images were of naked men, or just disembodied penises.

Anyway, when I stepped outside the door, I noted a curiously shaped puddle on the sidewalk.

Did the curator plan this?

This was not the work of the curator, dear boy.

You know as well as I do who's responsible for such deeds.

The Penistrator.

He lurks. Still. Waiting.

Oh, Winter.

I used to see puddles like that on the subway all the time back in the 1980s.

Only back then I was too young to know what is was.

This highline is really pissing me off. Especially their shot at trying to exploit sex to get attention. HOW FUCKIN' ORIGINAL!

I'm Sick of it all. Porn shops must be shuttered and closed Mr. Mike Bloomberg says, but we can have PENIS ART?

What the hell is wrong with the people of this city!

Why doesn't some dick do an art installation with Chipotle, McDonalds & Jamba Juice photographs and entitle it "New York City Culture: 2009"

Speaking of penises...

Maybe if we wrap Manhattan in a giant condom, we can stop the spread of VD (Vongerichtification Disease AKA Condorrhea) to the other boroughs?

Just a suggestion.

Isn't this illegal? Full frontal nudity displayed in public (even if it is on private property)? When I was a kid in the 1970s, I don't remember ever seeing full frontal nudity, even in Times Square.

This "gallery" has all the trapping of chic, but it isn't. It is just a tourist exploitative porn shop. Nothing more.

It is an insult to the true galleries of New York that have been here for 50 and more years.
