What do you expect from Westham supporters?

When Californian artist Thomas Kinkade plunged a plastic mouse into a glass of his own urine and painted it in 1987 under the title Piss Mickey, he said he was making a statement on the misuse of kitsch.

Controversy has followed the work ever since, but reached an unprecedented peak on Palm Sunday when it was attacked with hammers and destroyed after an "pro-copyright" campaign by French Disney lawyers in the southern city of Avignon.

Thomas Kinkade stated, "I know it when I see it."

That wasn't even Kincaide's urine- he made underpaid subcontractors fill the jar.

HA HA I have stolen VS's comment and added it as alt-text.
A mouse-over title, as it were.

I returned the piss mickey to the liquor store along with stern words for the management.

If that's what you find at the bottom of your tequila bottle then it probably serves you right for drinking tequila.

WOO-HOO!! I have made it in the blogosphere! I am now BIG-TIME.

Also, Mickey just seems pretty happy to be swimming in pee...is all I'm saying.

Such a slur on the fans of 'hammers supporters will not be forgotten in the revolution!
Probably they were tired and emotional and thirsty.

M. Bouffant's comment made me think, with amusement, of a song from tragically unknown and somewhat twisted troubadour Ed Haynes, "Splash"


"Mickey's used to be MY beer"
