I might have gone right on thinking that the Charging Bull is a symbol of patriarchy via capitalism if he hadn't so thoughtfully and articulately deconstructed its symbolism by informing us that "the bull had integrity". Which obviously, Fearless Girl not only lacks in herself, but also detracts from Charging Bull, robbing that former symbol of raw unbridled masculine dominance of its own integrity and emasculating it by virtue of her very existence diametric to it, just as women do to the male artists themselves simply by existing.

Now we need an eagle swooping in to eat the dog and then a hunter to shoot the eagle and then something else to take out the hunter.

Damn, he's quite the artist, eh? At first glance I thought it was a giant pug shit, rather than the pug itself. Second and third glance later It's still what I'm seeing. So the bull I always thought was rough as fuck. Proportions off by a fucking mile and legs that bear no resemblance to the animal they're attached to. The little girl on the other hand is pretty fucking tasty. Impressionist for sure but dripping attitude and conveying the emotion clear as a bell, compared to a bull which basically says nothing beyond "I'm mean and if I was a real bull I wouldn't be able to walk cos I don't have any shoulder muscles." Bull might have had "integrity" but it certainly wasn't anatomical.

As a neuroscientist I have to disagree with the perception that anyone is doing mathematical modeling of cognitive intelligence, yet; intelligence as an economist defines it, yes, but economists are worlds away from actual cognition.

Agreed, the girl is the best piece of work in the trifecta. She exudes defiance like an unmowable dandelion.

Really, despite its anatomical flaws (looks like Toro the bull from old Looney Tunes!) I quite like the sense of movement, or impending aggression, the bull captures.

The dog, on the other hand, is shite from a shite artist.

Yeah, with the bull, the motion is there and the face would look cool on a teeshirt or an american football helmet I guess but for someone who's been doing fuck all but staring at muscle and bone for the last six months of my life it's hard to see past the wrong. Pug guy, tho, if that wanker is making bank then maybe there's hope for me yet  :eek:

If you dislike Charging Bull, get a load of this other pile of bull he did in his pursuit of depositing large steaming odes to capitalism all over the world:

I was just poking around being curious about Michigan, and found this fascinating tidbit of American history:
Quote
The Mormon kingdom on Beaver Island

Although Beaver Island is known mostly today for its beaches, forests, recreational harbor, and seclusion, at one time it was the site of a unique Mormon[1] kingdom.

The island's association with Mormonism began with the death of Joseph Smith, founder of the Latter Day Saint movement. Most Latter Day Saints considered Brigham Young to be Smith's successor, but many others followed James J. Strang. Strang founded the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Strangite), claiming it to be the sole legitimate continuation of the church restored by Joseph Smith. His organization still exists today (though not on Beaver Island), numbering up to 300 adherents.[2] His group initially settled in Voree, Wisconsin, setting up a community there which remains to this day.

Seeking a buffer from persecution, Strang moved his followers to Beaver Island in 1848. The Strangites flourished under Strang's leadership and became a political power in the region. They founded the town of St. James (named after Strang), and built a road called "King's Highway" into the island's interior that remains one of its main thoroughfares. The Strangites cleared land, built cabins, farms, and other improvements, and sought to establish themselves as a permanent presence on Beaver Island.

I recommend reading on, it gets weirder.

WTF why

Best excerpt:

Created by Andre Dang, a former buyer for Harrods and Selfridges, Manfood came about as a direct result of family complaining about a lack of properly crisp, chunky pickles.

So I guess only men care about food being not garbage?
