Wanna feed the fish?

Maybe not if you stop by the art installation of Danish "artist" Marco Evaristti. It's kind of on hold until Texas Death Row inmate Gene Hathorn gets the juice. Hathorn murdered his mother and step-father and another person I believe. He's agreed to donate his dead murdering body to this guy and people will be able to feed his body to goldfish.:eek:

Are ya freakinkiddinme?:rolleyes:

After reading the article about the artist I feel so sane and normal. What a complete weirdo. The man is insane. He should be locked up in a psychiatric institution. At the very least he should be banned from owning or working with fish or any animal.

I love how the artist thinks the real problem here is "legally killing people." So, illegally killing them, like his possible client did, is OK then?

I'd way rather leave my body to Gunther von Hagens to use as part of Bodyworlds anyway. Then it would still be art, but kind of useful, too. My kids and I saw his exhibit as it came through Denver, and it was amazing!
