Conceptual artist Cherry Tree distills her own urine into a potent perfume. While shocking – after all, smelling of your own urine is generally considered a bad thing and implies you can’t find a toilet to save your life – the AOLWeirdNews article covering the artist’s invention treats the subject as a pun factory.
Interestingly, Tree is incredibly serious about the process, taking into account her diet and the correct fermentation method to eliminate some odor and leave the rest (“It smells really good after you eat a lot of honey and it smells terrible after eating chicken” are among the examples offered). And her overall purpose is to remind the masses to recycle that which we use or eliminate. But the science, art and philosophy of urine distillation was clearly on the back burner, as the main dish was a rapid-fire string of crass potty jokes.
In fact, some sentences functioned purely as self-feeding puns: “Tree realizes some people may make a stink about her hobby, but it’s natural to her.” I suppose everybody in the weird news industry has been guilty of dropping a deuce; most, however, at least attempt to clean up the mess afterward.
