New Zealand Politician Sculpted In Cow Manure

New Zealand Politician Sculpted In Cow Manure

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A sculpture of ACC and Environment Minister Nick Smith made out of cow manure has sold for $3,080 on auction site
The bust sculpted as a protest by artist Sam Mahon, attracted 112 bids before being picked up by an anonymous buyer on Friday."
When a editorial writer thinks that a politician is full of crap, he pens a critical essay, and when an artist is upset at a politician he makes a sculpture of him made out of cow manure.
I`ve had a few individuals lambaste me in print, but I hope I never upset this artist. I don`t want to be immortalized in crap, and have my likeness put up for auction and not draw any bids.
There is one thing more dangerous than angering Mahon: Getting on the bad side of a jihadist. These zealots don`t pen a letter to an editor when they disagree with an editorial, they lash out in violence.
