First of All, Pinky is the Epitome of GREAT taste. Secondly, He's Stiffer Than All His Competition Put Together
IN THE PINK: Tom Sale's Pinky Diablo's Trailer, a roving epitome of bad taste, will roll into action again at "Casket Factory '05," a do-it-yourself art fair continuing today at Southside on Lamar. Kitsch memorabilia such as a dead duck dressed as a baby and a vintage book on testicular problems entertained crowds outside last weekend's opening of the Dallas Center for Contemporary Art's "Moving Pictures" show. This time Pinky will have stiff competition.

Avignon chapel up for sale - on Ebay
They say you can sell anything on the internet - but a XVc chapel in the heart of Avignon? As John McEnroe used to say, "You cannot be serious." In fact, the present owner, who had intended to live in it himself but changed his mind, is entirely serious - to the extent of putting it up for auction on the online shop Ebay for a suggested ?790,000.The property in question is the chapelle Saint-Geniès, on rue Bonnetier in the pedestrianised area near the Palais des Papes. Its 355m2 consist of a 170m2 hall, whose 8m-high ceilings are surmounted by a 12m glazed dome, and two separate flatlets. Built in 1452 as one of five chapels used by the Popes in their Avignon days, it was rebuilt in 1737 (when the cupola was added). Since then it has had a chequered career, being used successively as a hospital, an armaments store, a court at the time of the Revolution, a stock exchange, a chamber of commerce and even a tourist office.The announcement of the sale has been greeted with derision by local estate agents, who comment that the French wouldn't even buy a car online, let alone a unique property, adding that only Americans would contemplate such a purchase. This view seems to be confirmed by the fact that, to date, no bids have appeared on the website and the only expression of interest has come from one Pinky Diablo, an eccentric American artist, who wants to paint it pink and establish it as a new papal palace with himself as pope under the title of Pinkus the First. He proposes to ask his fans to raise the price by contributing one dollar each - though whether his popularity is sufficient to generate the US price of $990,000 remains to be seen.

Pinky finds a long stretch of highway where there's no bathroom. Then he sets up his portable pink travel restroom and charges exorbitant prices to use it. He has hired the warty lunch lady from the local elementary school to be the bathroom attendant. It's a very classy outfit.
Pinky was driving to the store yesterday when a mongrel momma dog with big swinging teats ran across the road into what seemed to be an abandonned house. Pinky followed her into the house to check on her pups. When he got inside, he realized the house was not empty--simply trashed out. There was a lazy-boy with 100's of beer cans around it. Petrified pizza was everywhere. The sheets on the bed were gray with filth. But on the bathroom shelf was the key to the identity of the unknown inhabitant. There were jars and jars full of teeth--large and small--white and rotten. Pinky had found the lair of the tooth fairy!

Why do all the dirty work yourself. Have Pinky come entertain you while servicing your stoma. Ask about Pinky's hand puppet stoma care.

Pinky noticed that when he drives, he often looks at his nostils in the rear view mirror. Of course, since he has has rounded the middle-age turn, his nose hairs have begun to grow. But since he sees them when he drives, he plucks them out with his dainty pink fingertips. He feels sorry for all those hairy-nosed couch potatoes (and their wives).

Pinky has tried buying several things via the internet, but after he pokes money in the slot on the computer, nothing happens. He bets you are smarter and can contact the Webb Gallery at www.webbartgallery.com to find out more about buying this art on the internet. Who knows, if you live in Tennessee, he might even deliver it! (He's delivering some cows near there for Miss Love at the end of the month.)
After February’s yellow snow, the Russian island of Sakhalin received a dose pink snowfall. Experts at the local meteorology centre said sand from neighboring Mongolia was to blame for this unusual natural phenomenon. Before it arrived in Maritime, the cyclone passed Mongolia, where sand storms had been raging in the desert.
