everyday art

Time for another Rudy break? First stop today, the mountains and hills of northern Italy:

Viennese art group Gelatin designed the giant soft toy and say it was "knitted by dozens of grannies out of pink wool".

West of Italy, our next stop is the airport in Amsterdam, where I love this one. The Dutch are amazing -- actually applying psychology (and while doing so "making art") rather than hoarding it to siphon into thousands of self-help books that are destined to initially make the authors rich and then collect dust for all eternity.

But what's art if you can't enjoy it at home every day? (Note of personal pet peeve: I wrote "every day", which is different from "everyday" as used in the title of this post. Misspelling/misuse of this term in ads -- and everywhere else -- makes me *crazy*.) But enough about pet peeves and more about pet bees.

Funny stuff...the dog that looks like a bumble bee is funny...my favorite!

Poor doggie! Why can't people just let them be dogs? Looks like a failed attempt to make the dog a Notre Dame fan.

You know, if I had a buck for every large soft toy that tried to commit suicide...

And this pink bunny is supposed to be there for 20 years?! How long will it be before it starts to look like the filthy and decrepit cast-off toy from Goliath's Italian childhood? I'd commit suicide, too.
