Via The Meatriarchy, we see government largesse funding an artiste who mocks religion:

How about a performance artist who:

“suspended himself naked, filled his mouth with his own blood and assumed the lotus position. In Liaison Inter-Urbain he dug a shallow grave, inserted a vial of blood into his anus and contorted himself so that the blood flowed into his mouth.”

I think governments should pay good cash money only to artists who pry out their own eyes with spoons and hang upside down from trees to gain true knowledge. Put that on my 1040 form; I’d check the box to depopulate artists who suck in more ways than one.
