    Well, being a homophobe, it probably would kill me. ~-^

    Speaking of embarassing poems, the Puritans were usually very uptight, but the love poems that they wrote to each other should, in my opinion, not be read by anyone under 18.

    P.S. - No, the only time I get excited by a piece of art is when I am outraged by it, like that "Piss Christ" piece of art a few years back that was funded by my tax dollars. Usually I just accept it without it sinking in and move on, or think that the particular work is stupid and disregard it, I'm just not a very artsy guy.

    Kids shouldn't hurt art just because they don't understand it....

    Jakko ... I think we need to make a new thread...because we are uber off topic...

    Yeah, good point, I'll stop talking about this now, but that kid should have been punished more than he was...

    I think maybe he should have been, but not by much. Why didn't the museum have it covered with a pane of glass or have a rope around it?

    I mean, honestly. The security guards in the Ottawa Art Gallery are everywhere. That kind of thing wouldn't happen. And the paintings are covered by glass. It's really well done, you can only tell if you look really closely.

    But a lot of the modern art in that museum left me scratching my head. Some of it was nice, but I have to say that I liked the paintings by people like Picasso and the Group of Seven better.

    Edit - I had a moment of stupidity and had the city wrong...I looked up the name of the art museum, too.

    Yeah, but the DIA is different than that. Trust me, I've been there more than 3 times. One of which was in the past year. I'd seen the gum elsewhere, like on the underside of a staircase, along with graffiti.

    This kid just didn't have the common sense to know that you DON'T stick gum on art, I guess. And since common sense, a rope, and a closed circuit camera system were the only things guarding the painting... (yeah, there aren't many human guards at the DIA).

    I agree that the kid did a really dumb thing. I was shocked to read it in the paper. I wonder what the new security restrictions are going to be? Guess I'll find out, someday.

    Wait, so they have ropes and security cameras but no glass or anything covering the paintings? I can understand not having security guards, since you have to pay them and most people have the sense to stay back when there's a rope, and are even more likely to if there are security cameras.

    But not covering the paintings? Maybe that will be the new security measure.

I just enjoy a little flippancy every now and then, like everyone else.
    theres a difference between flippancy and disrespect.

    I'm almost more upset that someone I consider intelligent would say this nonsensical crap and support that fool, fool child.

    You couldn't have said anything truer Aikido.

    Ok, ok, I appologize. I'm not perfect, nor do I aspire to be. Everyone one has a brain fart every now and then and says something completely idiotic. I had just thought that the fact that I didn't edit my comments to take the offending remarks out(like some do), and instead fess up to saying something stupid(as I thought I made clear), would speak more of my integrity as an individual than to my intelligence, because everyone screws up now and then, that's what makes them interesting. Again, sorry, I like to think that my judgement is less clouded than most by some of the ideals espoused by people that live around me, but a little bigotry seeps in every now and then.

    P.S. - I thoughtI made it clear, in two posts in fact, including one of the ones quoted, that I did not support him, rather wished he was punished more severely, and was merely making a crude joke that was in poor taste.
