TGIS: Thank God It's Schadenfreude! (180) . . . The Sequel!

This week's bonus joy in the misfortune of others comes courtesy of the Gizmodo blog (from Tuesday, August 12; link good at time of posting):
An inflatable catastrophe second only to the Hindenburg disaster has occurred in Bern Switzerland at the Paul Klee Center art museum. A house-sized inflatable turd designed by American artist Paul McCarthy broke free from its moorings in high winds after the security system designed to deflate the installation failed.

Townspeople fled in terror as the work entitled "Complex Shit" cut a swath of destruction that included downed power lines and a broken window at a children's home.
