Reader: Using "Epic fail" to discuss art leads to epic failure in nude-sculpture censorship debate
Our post about the attempted censorship of nude art at a Wheat Ridge rec center led to a debate about the quality of the pieces, by Kittredge's Michael McGrath. One person dismissed them with the phrase "EPIC FAIL," which caused another reader to pull out the big verbal guns.

When I want to know what you think about Art, I will slam my head in my car door for twenty minutes, drink a pint of turpentine + bleach and then jam a pen up my nostril for a quick home lobotomy. Anyone who uses an idiotic meme like "epic fail" to discuss art and its role in public life is a fucking moron. Do everyone a favor and end your genetic line this moment.
