"Artist" Implants Third Ear on His Own Arm. . .
In our continuing quest not to shy away from the shocking and disturbing - perhaps even to focus on such things - we present the story of an Australian artist whose grand statement to the world has been made by implanting a third ear onto his forearm. (When added to the two already on his head, we mean.)
What a statement! What art nouveau!
Others have been less charitable (Drudge's headline: "FREAK: Artist implants 'third ear' on his own arm. . .") or even taken the opportunity to crack childish jokes: (The Mirror: "He's a kind of Vincent Van Gogh in reverse."). I, for one, welcome this freak into the United Consortium of Artists and Artisans.
Let us loose the shackles of myopic ignorance and see this masterpiece for what it is. Listen to this man's ideas:
"I hope to have a tiny microphone implanted to it that will connect with a bluetooth transmitter; that way you can listen to what my ear is hearing."
