A Continent-sized Practical Joke
So the Czech Republic is taking over the presidency of the EU and they commisioned a sculpture from one David Cerny to celebrate the occasion. Cerny led the commisioners to believe that he was going to cooperate with artist from each of the EU countries.
Instead, he and a bunch of friends built a mosaic with a panel for each country.
Cerny apologized to Bulgaria for depicting their country as Turkish toilet
and Romania as a Dracula Theme Park.
He denied that Germany resembles a swastika.
