Vandals Deflate 80-Ft Inflatable Butt Plug In Paris Square

Oh-hoh-hoh -- zat is ze second largest butt plug I have seen!

A group of angry art-critic vandals successfully deflated American artist Paul McCarthy's work "Tree", which had been on display in Paris's Place Vendôme as part of an international contemporary art fair. The piece was inspired by both a butt plug and a Christmas tree. Although, minus the color, it looks almost entirely butt plug to me. And, SURPRISE, some Frenchies weren't cool with that!

"An unidentified group of people cut the cables which were holding the artwork, which caused it to collapse," police told Reuters.


Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo said the attack was unacceptable and also denounced an assault on McCarthy the day he installed the work, when a man hit him in the face before running away.

"Paris will not succumb to the threats of those who, by attacking an artist or a work, are attacking artistic freedom," she said in a statement. "Art has its place in our streets and nobody will be able to chase it away."

Wow, for a group that sounds so anal, you'd think they'd be cool with a giant butt plug. Get it? Because that's where butt plugs go -- in the anal. "Anus." Whatever. Also, I can't believe Paul McCartney went from the Beatles to giant inflatable butt plug sculptures. "Paul McCarthy, NOT McCartney." Don't even act like you didn't think that at first too.

Thanks to Ed and E V I L A R E S, who agree we should inflate a string of increasingly larger helium balloons that look like anal beads and call it "Necklace".

    I do sympathize with the vandals, I make better art two to five times a day in my toilet. The Christmas butt plug is not what I consider art, more like advertising for a butt plug sale at the local sex shop, like when car dealerships have the giant gorilla or Godzilla and stuff.

    It is not "art" it is a prank played by the "artist" on the elite who were too wrapped in their own "intelligence" to look at this critically and see a giant butt plug.

  • Just because you don't consider it art doesn't mean it isn't.

    Just Because You Consider It Art, DoesN't Mean It Is.

    they may be anal, GW, but they are a bunch of tight asses. Butt plugs are the enemy.

    There are times where I consider vandal's actions as art (graffiti, destruction of useless corporate/government property).

    This is one of those time.
