Thanks but we already have enough entrants in that competition to last forever.
The one I remember, the guy was actually mistaken for art, until the reality set in.
That did not happen--it's an example of the way the press exagerates and distorts actual truth--and I am not too happy with your mindlessly repeating something that defames C&J and the burn in general.
Wow until you mentioned C&J I thought they were talking about the dude who burned himself to death.
I don't think there's anything despicable or defamatory about having a double-take/holy shit/is-that-for-REAL? moment when you come upon a hanging corpse at an art party. The accounts I have read (admittedly not contemporaneous) don't imply that the misperception lasted for more than a few seconds. Perfectly predictable, actually; a normal thing to do.
