NEA Funds 'Urine Lake' in Support of ObamaCare

PILING, MA - Pro ObamaCare artists have filled an old quarry with thousands of gallons of urine in an NEA-funded exhibit called 'Urine Lake.' "These are my peeps," said Deputy Director Buffy Wicks of the White House Office of Public Engagement. Working with artists around the country in conjunction with the National Endowment of the Arts, Wicks hopes to energize the public in support of the President's health care initiative. "We wanted to make a bold statement right out of the gate," said Wicks about Urine Lake. "And while I can't tell you what it means exactly, it symbolizes healthcare change." Wicks and the NEA have also underwritten a ninety-foot statue of the Pope made out of bobcat dung, and the Bullwinkle balloon from the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade covered in menstrual blood. "Again, this is crazy stuff the artists come up with," giggled Wicks. "But it means pro healthcare change, which means its all good. Maybe they could use modeling clay sometime. I hope so. It would sure smell nicer." (Photo: flickr.com)
