is it a bird, is it a plane...?
there are some things that you just never expect to see; iran's president lighting the hannukah menorah for joseph lieberman; a delta airlines hostess who is genuinely pleased to see you board the aircraft with a guitar case/fussy infant/just your boarding pass; a minivan-sized turd floating across the horizon.
"complex shit" by american artist, paul mccarthy, is an inflatable sculpture that recently became untethered from it's moorings at a swiss gallery, to float through the air- and knock out a greenhouse window- before it landed back on earth.
(that thing would make a great bouncy castle for a birthday party).
