FTFA: Local artist Jerry Vile has created something he calls "Vessel of Hope FIVE IN THE POO". He hopes it may in someway ease the pain of having the Detroit bankruptcy shoved into our faces where the Sun don't shine.

Everyone there deserves it.

I woulda got the joke but did not know it was big in the gay community to use that stuff as lube back in the day. I guess you couldn't get tubs of lube if needed? I'm not gonna google this.

I was reading somewhere that the real problem wasn't the art but that the city had a contract with Wesson Oil and they were worried about breaking it.

"Back and to the left, back and to the left, back and to the left, back and to the left ...."

When I was a student at the U de Genève, there was a mobile art piece in the Musée de Genève that consisted of a metal structure which simulated, albeit not so graphically, the motion of a penis during intercourse.

Artists:  get you damn minds out of the gutter!

Ils ne pensent qu'à ça! (That's all they (ever) think about!)

There's a good French sentence for you to memorize. Very handy if you are a little old bourgeoise. Don't say I never gave you anything!

TFA poked fun at all of the local affiliates who "breathlessly" covered the mysterious appearance of the giant can of Crisco, but Fox Channel 2 earned a little more of a licking because of their Facebook post: "Local artist Jerry Vile has created something he calls "Vessel of Hope". He hopes it may in someway ease the pain of having the Detroit bankruptcy shoved into our faces. Can anyone explain what this means???" Posting this on FB allowed the story to spread rapidly and be picked up by national news outlets which thus shone the light of mockery back to the Fox affiliate who then posted a mildly self-deprecating mea culpa. There's not that much to it.

Once these clueless farks get the message handed to them, they'll be wishing they had the cash equivalent to throw into a clogged storm drain. I've heard reliably there are small art refuges here & there, but the rest of that place resembles WW1 Belgium.

The fun thing about Fark is I learn something new everyday.

In fact, today, I learned that prison convicts use pats of butter to lubricate their acts of anal sex.

The worst part of Detroit is that it has no hope. The "get the creepy-ass crackers" method of municipal governance has led to a loss of population not seen for a city since the plagues. And their remedy? More of the same, only with more intensity this time, to show we mean it.

And the weather sucks, too.

Next election cycle Detroit elects as mayor the love child between Kwame Kilpatrick and the burned out shell of a once-decent house that now has sat on the market for 500+ days, even though the price is $1.

The population of Detroit in 2050 will be zero.

Except that the guy leading in the polls right now is a white guy from the suburbs that recently moved to the city and, due to some miscommunication, is a write-in candidate.  But please, share with us all of your great wisdom about Detroit, you clearly know what you are talking about.
