Dumb and dumberer

Which one is which? Let's see... on the one hand we have people protesting spray-painted cows and on the other hand we have the people who spray-paint cows and call it art. Complicating matters is the fact the spray-paint artist appears to also be an animal rights protestor.

The artist, whose real name is unknown, keeps a low profile but his canvasses can fetch more than 10,000. He also created Blur's last album cover.

He is known for a series of stunts, including breaking into the elephant enclosure at London Zoo and spraying the words: "I want out. This place is too cold. Keeper smells. Boring, boring, boring."
