Reader: Calling floating hotel room "art" makes me want to punch a baby

Yesterday, we told you about "The Hotel Rehearsal," a floating hotel room/art piece available for rent at $50,000 per night. After perusing photos of this unusual creation, a slew of folks shared their thoughts about its artistic value, and not all of them were impressed. Take, for instance, this reader.

If this is "art" then I'm going to find a cardboard box to rent out to some dumb ass rich guy for $50,000 and call myself an artist too! These "artists" can be so out of touch with reality sometimes it makes me want to punch a baby when I see the things they do. I love the Curtis. I can't believe they went along with this yuppy bullshit. Give me a break.
