Kentucky VS Florida: The Battle Continues

The ongoing battle between Florida and Kentucky for Moron Of The Week ...


Florida: The Art Of Mocking Art Pays Well

Banana Duct Taped To Wall By Maurizio Cattelan Sells For $120,000

Arguably one of the most talked-about works of art at this year’s Art Basel was a banana duct-taped to a wall that sold for $120,000.

It’s Maurizio Cattelan’s latest work of art. It’s called ‘The Comedian’ and it is entertaining art lovers from around the globe.

Some of those same art lovers’ conversations swirled around his 2017 golden toilet. The $6-million throne was stolen from England’s Blenheim Palace over the summer.

Art lover Weezie Chandler said, “You can do anything and once you’re established you can get away with it.”

Many believe this more ‘a-peeling’ piece represents the art world and its gaping wealth inequalities. Others advise not to think that deep.

One art lover said, “It’s mocking the art world. That’s what Maurizio Cattelan does.”

The first two pieces according to ARTnews.com were sold for $120,000, a third is being sold for $150,000.

As you may know by now, the semi-retired artist, whose last major creation was a golden toilet titled America (2016), has now taped a banana to a wall of Perrotin gallery’s booth at Art Basel Miami Beach, the glitzy bazaar that alights in that flood-endangered city every December. It is titled Comedian, and it is priced at $120,000. Three were available, and the first two apparently sold on opening day.

It isn’t even all that original. Another “artist” tacked a banana peel to a bit of drywall in 2008 and called it Installation (banana). No idea how much that glorious bit of genius sold for back then.

Kentucky: Family Court Judge Is A Total Slut

A female judge in Kentucky has been accused of having threesomes in her chambers and allowing employees to get drunk on the job.

Family Court Judge Dawn Gentry allegedly gave attorneys preferential treatment if they appeased her sexual demands and donated to her campaigns for re-election. 

The 38-year-old has now been hit with nine misconduct charges. 

According to an investigation by the Kentucky Judicial Conduct Commission, she flirted with attorneys over Snapchat, put pressure on them to sleep with her and, in one case, asked a female attorney to join her in a threesome with her former church pastor turned lover. 

On one occasion, she and the former pastor are said to have had a threesome with her secretary.

Gentry serves as a family court judge for Kenton County which is south of the Kentucky-Ohio state line near Cincinnati.

Plenty more at the link.

I’d give this round to Kentucky by at least 5 lengths. While the banana art in Florida just shows how stupid people with way too much money can be, the judge is a corrupt tramp. She was trading hoochie for favorable treatment in the courtroom. And that’s just downright evil.

To be fair, Florida won yesterday’s Loser-ama hands down. Vilmar covered that one. And then there was that news bit on the two super fatties who started a GoFundMe to help them diet, each has to lose at least 200lb before they can get bariatric surgery to carve off even more pounds. So Florida is probably ahead overall this week. But it’s only Saturday afternoon. You never know.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
