Quote# 91097

Inspired by the news story of Michael D'Antuono's long-hidden painting of a crucified Barack Obama finally emerging on the walls of a Boston community college art gallery, Beck set out to make a point about censorship and art and filth and liberals by using his own waste and trace amounts of satire. The segment started with a series of riffs: railing at people who portray nudes, then painting a thong on a print of a Rubens (whom he calls the "butt-crack guy") and adding a sweater and jeans to a Lucian Freud. He mentioned Picasso's Blue period, and carried on for awhile about painting out men's "ding-a-lings." And then Beck deliriously announced that he'd been working on a work of art of his own, "for quite a while — all day."

Ambling over to a tall pedestal, he lovingly cupped his hands around a jar filled with yellow liquid. He announced that he'd been drinking a lot of water all day, that this was a jar of his own urine. He offered that this was his "yellow period," and told us it's "a warm piece of me," again seeming overinterested and excited, fondling the jar with both hands. Then he had an assistant bring him a little plastic figurine. It was a kind of dashboard Obama, maybe in a smock. Beck took the figure between his fingers, held it over the jar, and dropped it into the urine.

However, the little Obama did not sink. The moment was hilarious: Beck tried to push it down a few times, splashing himself in the process. Looking around, he asked for "a stick." He then walked over and got his paintbrush, and tried to submerge the figure a few times. It still floated. Wouldn't go down. Flustered, flummoxed, he announced, "We should have tried this before." Not knowing what to do, he screwed the lid on and christened it "Flobama." He then unveiled a label that had a different title on it, Obama in Pee Pee. The price was $25,000. He announced that if this work were to sell on eBay, he'd do one of Michelle Obama and her "little abs," and put it in a Dos Equis beer bottle. (The auction would be removed by eBay in midstream, though it continued on Beck's own site.)

Just when you think they can't sink any lower, they discover a new abyss to explore...

Okay, it's officially time for Beck to be committed.

That is incredibly disgusting and sad! I can only imagine the creep Beck must have been growing up. I will give him credit though; his non stop crusade to up the insanity of the present political discourse is occasionally funny to watch.

12/4/2012 4:34:25 AM


At first, I thought this was an Onionesque site. Sadly, it's real. He's not very good at making a point. This one failed as badly as making eye contact with America.

Beck, you silly bastard.

The fuck?

Even though Beck makes his point in a totally clumsy way, he does have a point.

[Remember the crucifixion in the jar of urine art work sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities?]

I guess what's good for the goose is good for the gander sometimes.

12/4/2012 5:39:09 AM

So was his point that art should be censored or was he just being a random ranting retard again?

12/4/2012 5:44:45 AM


Yeah, he has "a point". He's trying to satirize modern art and specificly a piece called "Piss Jesus". The problems are that the point is moot by the very philosophy of modern art, that nobody sees Obama as the messiah and the Beck is unable fucktard.

12/4/2012 5:58:33 AM


What was the point? What was he trying to say? I know that the reference point is the Piss Christ, but beyond that, I don't get it. This isn't funny or clever, just faintly disgusting.

Doubting Thomas

OK, I think we've seen here when you cross the fine line between "artistic genius" and "insane." Of course, Glenn Beck was never a genius and we all know that he went insane years ago. Anyone who's too crazy for Fox News...

12/4/2012 6:28:09 AM


I don't really know who this person is, but from that description I might wonder if he has serious mental health issues.

12/4/2012 6:33:18 AM


He thought about and planned this ALL day and didn't realize that plastic would float? Jeez! He really is an idiot, isn't he!

Ironically, Glenn here is quoting Serrano's Pisschrist, and quotations are very popular in contemporary art now.

Too bad he's not aware of this.

Also, technically, Glenn can be now considered an Outsider artist.

Inspired by tha shizzle rap of Michael D'Antuonoz long-hidden paintin of a crucified Barack Obizzay finally emergin on tha wallz of a Boston hood college art gallery, Beck set up ta cook up a point bout censorshizzle n' art n' filth n' liberals by rockin his own waste n' trace amountz of satire. Da segment started wit a seriez of riffs: railin at gangstas whoz ass portray nudes, then paintin a thong on a print of a Rubens (whom he calls tha "butt-crack guy") n' addin a sweata n' jeans ta a Lucian Freud. Y'all KNOW dat shit, muthafucka! Dude mentioned Picassoz Blue period, n' carried on fo' awhile bout paintin up menz "ding-a-lings." And then Beck deliriously announced dat he'd been hittin dat shizzle on a work of art of his own, "for like a while â€" all day."

12/4/2012 7:02:24 AM

Amblin over ta a tall pedestal, he gangbanginly cupped his handz around a jar filled wit yellow liquid. Y'all KNOW dat shit, muthafucka! Dude announced dat he'd been drankin a shitload of gin n juice all day, dat dis was a jar of his own urine yo. Dude offered dat dis was his "yellow period," n' busted some lyrics ta our asses itz "a warm piece of me," again seemin overinterested n' buckwild, fondlin tha jar wit both hands. Then he had a assistant brang his ass a lil plastic figurine. It was a kind of dashboard Obizzay, maybe up in a smock. Beck took tha figure between his wild lil' fingers, held it over tha jar, n' dropped it tha fuck into tha urine.

But fuck dat shizzle yo, tha word on tha street is dat tha lil Obizzay did not sink. Da moment was hilarious: Beck tried ta push it down a few times, splashin his dirty ass up in tha process. Lookin around, he axed fo' "a stick." Dude then strutted over n' gotz his thugged-out lil' paintbrush, n' tried ta submerge tha figure a few times. It still floated. Y'all KNOW dat shit, muthafucka! Wouldn't go down. I aint talkin' bout chicken n' gravy biatch. Flustered, flummoxed, he announced, "Our thugged-out asses should have tried dis before." Not knowin what tha fuck ta do, he screwed tha lid on n' christened it "Flobama." Dude then unveiled a label dat had a different title on it, Obizzay up in Pizzle Pee. Da price was $25,000 yo. Dude announced dat if dis work was ta push on eBizzle, he'd do one of Michelle Obizzay n' her "lil abs," n' put it up in a Dos Equis brew forty. (Da auction would be removed by eBizzle up in midstream, though it continued on Beckz own crib.)

Finally he went over the top. Maybe after they put him in a nutfarm we won't have to listen to him anymore.

Glen Beck is an inarticulate boor who mocks his betters to make himself feel good about his mediocrity.

@ 1477963~4

WTF? Are you Vox Day having a stroke and pretending he knows ebonics again? And if so, how the hell does this relate to Glenn Beck playing with his own urine and waxing nonsensical about art and censorship? Two subjects he apparantly doesn't know well enough to clumsily insult let alone properly parody.

Cuz he tried very poorly to insult a black guy? That's on the periphery of why we think he's a loony.

12/4/2012 8:24:34 AM


Glenn, do us all a favor and get medicated.

12/4/2012 8:35:04 AM


Oh, Glen Beck, a cultural treasure. Our representative to the art world. What a guy.

12/4/2012 8:38:04 AM


Dude, "Christ Piss" or whatever it was called only works once.

12/4/2012 8:44:30 AM

Jezebel's Evil Sister

The big surprise was that Beck resorted to using his own urine. Unadulterated bullshit is usually his medium of choice.

12/4/2012 8:50:27 AM


Obama doesn't sink?

He's a witch! We've all been deceived! Trial by water in effigy reveals the truth!
