Funny Comment of the Day

Shepard Fairey, the artist behind the now infamous Obama Change picture, was arrested by Boston Police on his way to the Institute of Contemporary Art.  Apparently he was heading there to attend the opening of an exhibit of his work, and he was going to dj for the crowd.

We now know that he was picked up on warrants for graffiti. Thom Garvey at the Hub Review has some thoughts about the incident, along with some relevant links.

But I did laugh this morning when a commenter on the early Boston Herald story said:

"I hope he was arrested on charges of attempting to dj his own art opening. I hate it when people do that."

I can't find the original story and comment, but I'm pretty sure I got it right.
