bid it up

(OK, blogger is finally back up after fucking with me all day, so I’m just going to offer this short post with a question that I’m sure will enliven the conversation at your weekend barbecue or cocktail party.)

Is it just me, or does this photo of a freshly killed Abu Musab al-Zarqawi look like art?

I know, everything is art, but I mean art intentionally created as art. Just look at it—it looks like Cézanne meets Serrano. Hell, the Army even took the time to frame it, ferchrissake!

I know I’m being morbidly goofy, but I’m kind of serious. I would proudly sign my name to that thing and send it to the next Biennial.
