I am speechless... but there's quizzes!

Note the very small people in the lower right-hand corner. [via]
The 200-foot-long toy rabbit lies on the side of the 5,000 foot high Colletto Fava mountain in northern Italy's Piedmont region.

Viennese art group Gelatin ... Group member Wolfgang Gantner said: "It's supposed to make you feel small, like Gulliver. You walk around it and you can't help but smile."

And Gelatin members say the bunny is not just for walking around - they are expecting hikers to climb its 20 foot sides and relax on its belly.

The giant rabbit is expected to remain on the mountain side until 2025.
Honestly. Words fail me. I tell people that modern art isn't like what it looks like in small pictures, that it has to be seen in person for the emotional and aesthetic impact to be felt rather than just imagined. But....

Well clearly, it's time for the quiz: Great Art, or Disposable Junk. This is your chance to see if you can tell the difference between Modern Art and Paintshop junk, between great writers and PR hacks, between Classic and obscure music... try it!
