A Taste for Fine Art?


Have you ever had one of those neighbors, you know, the kind who just seems to irritate everyone else on the block at nearly every opportunity? Well, it seems that Alan Davis, who resides in Seminole County, Fla., mixes his junk with a flair for “modern” art.

Mr. Davis gained some notoriety or, should I say, infamy for littering his yard with junk. For this crime, along with probation violations, this artiste-extraordinaire earned a four-year prison sentence. According to Davis, this was a political protest that began 10 years ago when he started littering his yard and roof with scrap metal, airplane parts, and toilets. Oh, there’s one more item that struck his fancy as a yard ornament…A giant statue of human buttocks.

In 2003, Davis was convicted of felony criminal littering and sentenced to a year in state prison. However, shortly after he was released, he was taken back into custody on several charges of probation violation. Before serving some additional time, he enacted some revenge by placing another, rather large, sculpted buttocks in front of the Seminole County courthouse.

Mr. Davis’ current strategy is to stick it to the man by dotting the perimeter of his yard with 42 smaller but similar statues.  My question is, does he have a refrigerator filled with beer amongst all that junk and can he crack open a cold one using the butt cheeks on those statues?  Heck, if he has a few too many, he’s already got a toilet right there in the yard.  He won’t even have to stumble inside to blow chunks in the commode.
