The other day I was driving by the Scummerson place and I decided to play my favorite game, 'What's New in the Shitpile?'
I've explained this game before. It's kinda like 'Where's Waldo,' except that instead of Waldo, you try to spot the newest piece of shit the Scummerson's have dragged home and are proudly displaying somewhere on their front lawn.
We also have another game, wherein we like to imagine that it is not junk, but rather serious art.
Turns out this particular gallery item was pretty easy to spot.
A rusty oil tank, lying on its side.
With a concrete rabbit on it.
I have to say I'm glad they finally found the ultimate spot for the concrete rabbit. I think it accents the space perfectly, and lends an air of sophistication and quiet dignity to the oil tank that it didn't have before.
Although they usually have a pretty good eye for decorating, it was my personal opinion that the rabbit never looked quite right on top of the snowblower. To my admittedly amateurish eye, it overpowered the statement that 'Snowblower In Weeds with 40-ouncer' was trying to make. Maybe it's just me. Like I said, I know nothing about art.
I think they might be losing their touch though. Even I can see that the kid's mini-slide is a bit ostentatious. I think it parodies itself, and really subtracts from what the oil tank rabbit is trying to say.
Or maybe I'm just misunderstanding the message.
Looking at it another way, there's nothing like letting your kid play on a slide that is directly underneath a concrete rabbit perched on a curved surface. I mean, that really says something. Maybe, just maybe, I've got the title of the piece wrong and it's really "Accident Waiting to Happen" or "Slow-Kid Trap."
Ah, well. I didn't get Andy Warhol's shit either.
