Art attack? The Big Blue Bear needs a Big Blue Bathroom

Does a bear shit in the woods? How about in the city -- in front of the Colorado Convention Center? The answer, it appears, is "yes."Someone snapped the above picture of an awesome "art attack" that took place sometime on Sunday night or Monday morning underneath the Big Blue Bear -- otherwise known as "I See What You Mean" -- outside the convention center.

It consists of a pile of big blue poop, which was made of papier-mache, according to a source who saw it -- and matches the bear's color perfectly. A spokesman for the city's Arts & Venues division didn't return a phone call seeking comment.
