Matt Furie

I'm stealing this comic off the vice website. It just brought back some disturbing memories of my childhood, when i went into my lower school toilet and caught my friend taking a piss standing up with his trousers round his ankles and his bum fully out.

''Why is your bum out?'' i asked. My friend just casually shrugged and replied, ''because it's sexy. I like being sexy.'' Until this day i could never quite look that guy in the eye or feel entirely comfortable around him. Sorry Stuart.

I suppose the people leaving negative comments about this comic on Vice never really had a bum out moment at school. They truly missed out on a big part of growing up there. Also they must not appreciate the artist Matt Furies work. I absolutely love it. I see some hilarious satirical observations of society being portrayed with the use of his strange creatures. They kind of remind me of the fucked up toys you could get when i was growing up. His work treads that thin line between being childlike and absolutely fucking amazing, giving the impression he has the brain of an 11 year old autistic genius. I love it when you see that delicate balance in art.

Matt Furie's great, he does tees for Will Sweeney's Alakazam aswell.

I always piss with my trousers down to my ankles, you've gotta let it breath.

Yeah i agree the cold breeze across the cheecks is not unpleasant, it's just not in a school toilet cubicle, with the door open.

Thanks for the link aswell mate
