Possibly art, possibly a shoe advertisement, possibly the auditorium centerpiece for a pedo convention.
Art, especially modern art, is subject to study and interpretation. For example, this museum piece can be interpreted many different ways...
"A Tree With Huge Tits," by Amanda Scuglia
Not to be confused with deviantART.

Art is something that was invented at least 100 years ago by Michelangelo, Leonardo De Caprio, and two other mutant ninja turtles. They developed the art to celebrate their obsession with the naked male form, or in other terms, to cover up their immense gayness. Since its inception, art has diversified, and there are a wide range of art movements representing various subcultures (e.g., furry art).

Lots of people claim they don't know much about art but they know what they like. What they like is often not actually art, it's retart.

People also like to think they are being mildly intellectual by asking the agonizingly stale question (generally in response to pieces from the lazily named eras of postmodernism and antimodernism), "is it art?" A few possible answers to this:


A person who participates and engages in art as a profession, often attending Art school, is an artist (often known more commonly by other terms such as art fag, poor, and unemployed). Artists are also often hipsters, goths, emos, and indiefucks, which no doubt adds even further incentive for giving them a swift kick in the crotch if ever encountering them IRL.

The less talented the artist, the more protective of the art he/she/it is. Most artists have huge egos and actually think their art will gain them notoriety for 'asking the really important questions'. The reality is that for most artists the 'really important question' is "Do you want fries with that?", which they can expect to ask for a great many years while waiting for their 'big break'.

You can spot an art fag off the street if he has any of the following qualities:

  • Listens to The Smiths
  • Has a mustache
  • Wears a trenchcoat
  • Has a mustache
  • Wears black tights
  • Has a bucket
  • Writes poetry
  • Wears black lipstick (under his mustache)
  • Has a roller coaster haircut dyed black
  • Real hair color is actually brown (just like his mustache)
  • Wants to be Robert Smith (but with a mustache)
  • Has a mustache

(A lot of Anal Cunt fans wish they were Seth Putnam, and fap about sucking his small, virgin cock.)
