Talking shit

A Swiss museum is counting the cost of having crap art, after a giant inflatable dog turd the size of a house broke free from its moorings in high winds. 

The massive poo, an artwork by American Paul McCarthy, left a trail of destruction in its wake as it blew away, bringing down a power line before eventually landing on a nearby children’s home, where it broke a window.

The installation, entitled Complex Shit, was supposed to have a safety system that deflated it in bad weather. However, a sudden gust appears to have caught it by surprise.
