Well, I do curse at the tourists though it’s more self-righteous, insulting cursing rather than “vicious.” Even though I know it violates Rule #3 under Ethical Conduct on The Noble Eightfold Path.
Would totally put a mummified cat in a piece…if I only had a mummified cat.
There are stories of him trashing art galleries and studios. Handcuffing a woman to his stove. Sticking a mummified cat in one of his works. Going on lithium and alcohol binges that left him a wreck.

Sitting in bars, drinking and trying to get women to go to bed with him.
Great AP article. In a related note, in the same position on Nola.com yesterday was a story about a Connecticut house fire.
