To some people anyone can be a celebrity.

In the UK we have recently had some Yank named Blaine, who is apparently
famous in his own country, hanging from a crane in a perspex box over the
He didn`t do anything. Not even eat, for about 30 days. Unfortunately the
crowds, although they went to see him, did not treat him with the respect he
commanded in the US. They threw things at him, shone laser lights at him,
held drunken revels beneath his box. Someone climbed out on the crane jib
and tried to saw the cable through.  Naughty ladies took their blouses off
and shook their wobbly bits at him. In fact a good time was had by all and
the police had to mount a cordon under him. Eventually  the twit was taken
out of his box and whisked away to hospital in a blaze of photographic flash
bulbs. Nothing has been heard of him since.

Was it ART? I ask.
