A GREAT ARTISTE has unveiled a solid gold statue of model Kate Moss -- the largest solid gold statue since antiquity -- at the British Museum, no less! Given that it is solid gold, and given that it is the largest gold statue of Kate Moss in two or three thousand years, it's probably the GREATEST WORK OF ART since . . . something Larry Flint or Bob Guccione. Certainly better than any of those dead things by Damien Hirst.

What? Do I hear a question? "What about Da Vinci, Picasso, Rembrandt?" All dead dead DEAD! And if they were so great, why didn't they work in SOLID GOLD?!

The BBC has all the exxxciiiting details, plus photos of the masterpiece in its most innntriiiguing pose.

Did I mention that it's SOLID GOLD! Fifty kilograms -- 110 pounds for sorry non-metric Americans like me. . . . Makes me think of those Solid Gold Dancers.

I have an idea for a LARGER GOLD STATUE -- GILD KATE MOSS! (Gild, not geld, . . . please read carefully.)

I don't even know where to start with this. It's appalling on so many levels.

The sculpture ($3M worth of gold, by the way) is called "Siren," and she's in THAT pose? Gross.
