The Onion Jokes The Kansas City Picasso



While mainstream newsies celebrate every bit of presser copy regarding the "creative class" only the hard-hitting journalism of "America's Finest News Source" brings the facts . . .

The Onion: Museum Proudly Exhibits Picasso Shitty Enough To Be In Kansas City

Sadly, our local arts scene taking itself far too seriously would be even more funny if it wasn't for so many politicos using it to justify HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS in new taxes.

Fuck the Onion, they must not know about our prefab butler buildings.

Make that Sun Tzu. Lao was his pacifist brother.

Some nig nog is going to destroy our Carivaggio one of these days, you heard it here first.

Will probably spill Kool Aid on it while wiping a scuff off his Jordans.

The Nelson is the only authentic art scene in Killa City, even though it's a momument to dead white guys who never set foot in this town. This Caravaggio ... he some Dago hip-hopper or what? Never seen him around here, either.

Artists? Oh yah, we got lots. Arts district? Got one of those too. Arty parties? Up the ol' yingyang. Art school? You betcha. World class, $40 grand a year, baby.

So then: Other than the dead guys at the Nelson, where's the fuckin' ART? There ain't any. Leastwise, any worth shaking a stick at. Shit, they don't even do birthday cards and shit here anymore.

The whole art thing is, like, smoke and mirrors. The only part of it that is real is the hundreds of millions of (mostly taxpayer) dollars pissed away on it. Whad did y'all get for that, other than lots of swell parties for blonde chicks and big-money guys from Prairie Village?
