From the Artist Taking Things Too Literally department comes this cuckoo clock, which consists of a real (dead) cuckoo crucified to a wall with a digital clock hung around its neck on a chain, by Michael Sans. Okay, statement made. This piece of art (or whatever) isn’t for sale, and if you’re thinking that this would make some sort of darkly interesting DIY project, I would like to draw your attention to the Federal Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918, which protects birds like the cuckoo. Under the act, killing (or even possessing a piece of) a migratory bird can get you six months in jail and a $15,000 fine (this particular cuckoo died from natural causes in 1958).
