Guillermo Vargas - Eres Lo Que Lees (You Are What You Read) (2007)

Okay, listen now. I'm not posting this to contribute to the internet fracas surrounding whether or not this "starve a dog" piece actually happened, or its ethical implications etc. I just had to share how Graig R. found a perfectly tasteless way to work in that most classic of lolcaptions to a work of art that was probably a hoax in the first place. But seriously, did anyone take the time to translate the title before they made those facebook protest groups? (2007)

Bonus nude Vito Acconci!

Praise goes to Mark S. for merging this classic caption with this classic image of Vito Acconci biting himself.
