GENEVA (AFP) - A giant inflatable dog turd by American artist Paul McCarthy blew away from an exhibition in the garden of a Swiss museum, bringing down a power line and breaking a greenhouse window before it landed again, the museum said Monday.

The art work, titled "Complex S(expletive..)", is the size of a house. The wind carried it 200 metres (yards) from the Paul Klee Centre in Berne before it fell back to Earth in the grounds of a children's home, said museum director Juri Steiner.

The inflatable turd broke the window at the children's home when it blew away on the night of July 31, Steiner said. The art work has a safety system which normally makes it deflate when there is a storm, but this did not work when it blew away.

Steiner said McCarthy had not yet been contacted and the museum was not sure if the piece would be put back on display.

I agree that some art is shit.. but you'll be hard pressed to convince me that shit is art.

Sounds dangerous to me - a turd has to have a LOT of gas to FLOAT, much less FLY.

Question of the day: who pays for damage?

Wow! The shit really hit the fan this time! Where's the inflatable dog to go with it?

Was this inspired by the two girls and their cup? Just asking...

Poor Paul! From the Beetles to inflatable crap. Oh, wait, that was McCartney! My bad!

Seriously, though, shit I wonder if the blimp was radio controllable. You can buy R/C blimps for $50. Add something to make it look shitty, spray it brown, and you can tell your friends and family to take a flying shit... seriously!

I'll stop now.
