I'm the hirsute Waldo at the very, very end who walks slowly towards the fray, perfectly times his run so that it looks like he is going to make it and then immediately trips over someone and flails helplessly on the ground before being hit by the spinning bar.

I used to say that beauty was in the eye of the beholder, that the value of art was entirely subjective. But then I saw Koons's work, and realized that some art can be absolutely bad, not worth the air it displaces. And if some art can be absolutely bad, maybe some other art can be absolutely good after all. So one can learn something, even from Koons's oeuvre.
