  1. #1 "Priceless artwork" Pitched By Movers. Normal People Laugh. (Downer.) 
    Courtney Love's fury as removal man throws out her prized £8,000 ‘work of art’ with the rubbish

    It's a mistake any of us could make. When removal men spotted a dead bird in a matchbox at Courtney Love’s house, they assumed it was junk and threw it out.

    But the embryonic chick was an £8,000 artwork, and the widow of Nirvana singer Kurt Cobain is said to be ‘blazing mad’ at its loss. Insiders say she has thrown a ‘hissy fit’ and fired her assistant for failing to look after such a treasured possession.

    The untitled artwork by fashionable British artist Polly Morgan – whose creations are much admired by Kate Moss and Damien Hirst – had been standing on a 6ft plinth in the corner of Ms Love’s bedroom.
    But during preparations for the move in Los Angeles, supervised by the assistant, the pedestal was packed ready for shipping to the new house. The chicklet, however, which was normally seen lying under a mini chandelier, was left sitting on a sideboard.

    When the removal men came in to pack up the rest of Ms Love’s possessions, they spotted the chick and simply disposed of it.

    ‘Courtney is beside herself,’ said the source. ‘She’s been living in a hotel and entrusted her personal assistant to supervise her move from a rented house in Malibu to a big place up in the Hollywood Hills.
    ‘Courtney has a ton of stuff, everything from a huge vintage clothing collection to a massive doll’s house collection. She also has art everywhere, a lot of it modern.

    ‘She’s blazing mad and throwing a complete hissy fit because one of the removal men mistook her Polly Morgan for rubbish and threw it out with the trash. She’s fired the assistant and is going nuts because, to her, the work was priceless and irreplaceable.’

    I can get her a mouse carcass in a empty chilli can real cheap as a replacement. I sure I can talk to my sources and get her one for about $7,000

    Courtney is a skank. She makes Yoko Ono look like a respectable rock widow, in comparison. Yoko may have no musical talent, but she knows how to invest money, so she is not totally worthless.


    Only a total skank would buy a dead bird in a box and consider it art.

    Only a leftist looks at that crap and calls it art - and only a leftist would MAKE that and call it art.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    Hey, I'm a center-leftist and I don't consider that art. Even "junk art" still has to do something to touch one's soul or intellect. A dead bird in a box is a dead bird in a box. There is gang graffiti in Detroit with more style and soul than that.

    At least the graffiti is sometimes colorful!

    what a society calls art is a clear sign of the state of that society.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.
