Glenn Beck's "Obama in Pee Pee" creation may not be on its way to the MOMA, but it sure is making a splash by pissing off eBay.

Beck's work of "art" is actually a response to another controversial piece titled, "The Truth". In "The Truth" artist Michael D'Antuono chooses to depict President Obama in a Christ-like position, more specifically, Christ's pose on the crucifix. The painting, displayed at Bunker Hill Community College, has attracted lots of negative attention because some believe its disrespectful and blasphemous.
In a video posted on theBlaze.com Beck creates his "work of art" by submerging an Obama bobble head into what he dubs as his own "specially brewed Country Time" in a mason jar. The piece, entitled "Obama in Pee Pee" (Pee Pee, Beck? Seriously, how old are you?), is a play off of Andres Serrano's "Piss Christ". It's pretty clear Beck is mocking the government's funding of the arts, criticizing people's love for Obama as well as exercising his freedom of speech.
Beck decided to auction off "Obama in Pee Pee" for $25,000 on eBay. Ironically, the auction was halted for violating eBay's rules against selling, "bodily fluids". Honestly eBay, how else are you supposed to buy affordable bodily fluids? In the end, it turned out the Obama figurine used in the piece was not actually submerged in Beck's urine, but beer -- how disappointing!
Beck's commentary on First Amendment rights became a freedom of speech issue in and of itself. How meta! What do you think of Obama in Pee Pee? Let us know in the comments:
