-- Harry S. Truman
Who the hell pays for this shit?
Wearing an orange McDonald's cap and a striped shirt that made him look like the Hamburglar, Nate Hill rode his bicycle down East 86th Street Tuesday afternoon tossing yellow-paper wrapped cheeseburgers to surprised bystanders.
"Free Cheeseburgers!" Hill, a performance artist from Harlem, shouted as he rode down the street, chucking the puck-sized packages at confused passersby.
The bizarre performance art — "Second Deceit aka Free Cheeseburgers," as the piece is formally called — kicked off at the McDonald's on Third Avenue near East 85th Street Tuesday morning, when Hill stocked up on 20 cheeseburgers for $32.44, bit a chunk out of each one, and re-wrapped them with Scotch tape.
Hill doesn't even swallow the bites of cheeseburger that he takes, instead spitting the burger bits into a bag.
"It upsets my stomach," he said of the burgers.
No, you cliched trust fund narcissist, that isn't art - it's called assault and battery to throw food at people, ass. Monkeys fling dung; this is one very small step above that, if even.
Because he'd get his ass handed to him. And the homeless might like if you took the money and bought them a burger. What, too mainstream?
Friggin' hipsters - look at me, LOOK AT MEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!
