Animals: They’re All Thieves, Especially These Ducks, Seagulls, Sealions And Dogs

duck

EVERYONE thinks animals are so wonderful and they’re not. They’re poo machines who think of humans as elaborate tin-openers and dung shovelers. And we’re stupid enough to believe they care for us.

When folks aren’t watching, stood atop their hind legs, animals are out making mugs of us. They crap on our rugs, bury their faeces in our gardens, sleep on our beds after rolling around in their own vomit and then die prematurely, just to make us cry.

Student Clayton Pettet Will Lose His Virginity In A Performance Art Show

clayton pettet

CLAYTON Pettet, 19, is a second year student at London’s Central Saint Martins school of art. On January 25, 2014, Clayton says he will produce a piece of “performance art” involving him being vigorously shafted up his rectum for the first time.

It’s a big moment. The hope is that all Clayton’s friends and family (hope you can make it, nan) will turn up to support the budding artist in Art School Stole My Virginity.

Says Clayton:

“I’ve held on to my virginity for 19 years, and I’m not throwing it away lightly. Basically it’s like I am losing the stigma around virginity. Since culturally we do hold quite a lot of value to the idea of virginity I have decided to use mine and the loss of it to create a piece that I think will stimulate interesting debate and questions regarding the subject.”

All those homophobes who think the whole things is wrong and immoral, turns out, are wildly wrong. They reckon it is unnatural? Well, you don’t get more natural than a bunch of insects all shtupping each other, regardless of gender. It seems that ‘beastly’ isn’t a slur at all!
