You Just Can’t Make This Up!

Paris – A South African performance artist who tied a live rooster to his penis during an impromptu show near the Eiffel Tower was found guilty on Monday of sexual exhibitionism, but the Paris court did not impose a sentence, prosecutors said.

Last September Steven Cohen danced on the tourist filled Trocadero Plaza dressed in a corset, high heels, long red gloves and an elaborate feathered headdress with a rooster attached by a ribbon.

Against the backdrop of the Eiffel Tower, and under the amused and perplexed gaze of tourists, including a group of nuns, the spectacle lasted only a few moments before police arrested Cohen, dragging him across the plaza, rooster attached.

Cohen’s lawyer said she was “relieved.”

“This is a rather measured decision,” lawyer Agnes Tricoire said. “In my opinion, this case should never have gone to court.”

In a March interview with Le Figaro daily, Cohen said authorities had, “no understanding of what art is, what performance is.”

“If I’m found guilty . . . I will see it as a failure of French justice,” said Cohen, who has lived in France for about 10 years.

Prosecutors had asked for a $1,400 fine.

Cohen said the rooster, named Franck, was not harmed during the performance. The animal was chosen “because it’s the emblem of France.”

Crazy has just one response to this – Cock-a-doodle-do.

One mans’ art is another man’s crazy.
