AR whackjob eats corgi in protest
According to this article, British artist and ARA Mark McGowan has eaten a cooked Welsh Corgi on the radio in a bizarre protest against fox hunting. Apparently, Yoko Ono, wife of the late John Lennon ( the multi-millionaire who sang "imagine no possessions" ) was with McGowan and also tried the cooked canine. McGowan is known for his strange stunts. He one time carried a raw 27 pound turkey on his head walking 11 miles backwards while shouting to overweight people in a "protest" against the "obesity pandemic". WTF? He also dined on fox one time to bring attention to the "plight of crackheads" (aren't crackheads responsible for getting themselves into their own "plight" in the first place, I might ask?). The astute reader will notice that Mr. McGowan claims that his little stunt was "an art piece". No, Mr. McGowan. It is a bizarre stunt by an individual who seems to have a desperate need to draw attention to himself that one can't help but wonder may border on the pathological. As long as the AR movement has wingnuts like McGowan speaking out for it, it will be seen for what it is: bizarre fanaticism on the lunatic fringe of society.
