LONDON (Reuters) - A British burglar who stumbled on a work of art that he mistook for a human head in a pickle jar was so spooked that he summoned the police to a house he had robbed.
Conceptual artist Richard Morrison had made the head from bacon wrapped around a wire frame floating in a jar of formaldehyde.
After the burglar phoned, police bashed down Morrison's door to raid his house, near Liverpool in northern England. Morrison returned home to find that his house had been broken into twice, once by the burglar and once by the police.
Yeah, umm... who needs the Slomin's shield when you can decorate your house with faux cephali? This bloke Morrison should set up a business selling these bacon heads as a cheap security device, sure to scare away would-be burglars. posted by Steve
