But We Already Knew How to Do This
Belgian artist Wim Delvoye worked on this project for three whole yearsin concert with key dedicated scientists at the University of Antwerp, all of whom apparently had nothing better to do. The installation is called
Cloaca, and is a massive machine built from beakers, plastic tubing and electrical pumps, and is designed to reproduce the accomplishments, shall we say, of the human digestive system. Food (of any kind) is dumped into a funnel at one end, and, twenty seven hours later, feces come out the other end!
We are deeply gratified that the modern artistic establishment has finally found its metier.
We Asked God for Money. . .
Northwest College sent out a fund-raising appeal that has the above statement on the front. When you open it, the reply to
this observation says, "He said He won't give us any until you do."
And we aren't giving until God makes pigs start to whistle.
Too Many Irons in the Fire
Misty Irons, wife of Lee Irons, has published an article entitled "A Conservative Christian Case for Civil Same-Sex Marriage." We have commented on this elsewhere, but it still warrants an entry in the Cave.
To quote from her article, completely out of context, "It is no wonder that nobody listens to us anymore." Normally we try not to quote people out
of context, but this is the only way to make her statement true.
Nice Work If You Can Get It
We like avant-garde artists, because they make us realize, no matter how bizarre the Christian world gets, the world of unbelief is dumber still. Last March, a cat belonging to British artist Tracey Eminavant garde, as mentioned aboveran away, the cat, that is. Emin then made up some flyers to post around the neighborhood. When folks realized that the posters were Emin's work, they started to disappear and were being offered on the street for as much as $800. But the White Cube gallery, which regularly hosts Emin's work, issued a statement saying that the poster was not art, even though the public might think it was.
Because the cat was apparently recognizable.
Helpful Insights From Overseas
A recent bestseller in France goes by the title
The Frightening Fraud. Written by one Thierry Meyssan, the thesis of the book is
that our very own U.S. government staged the attack on the Pentagon on September 11.
If the French didn't exist, we would have to invent them.
