Looks a bit drab; wouldn’t something like a Hello Kitty design be more suitable for children?

Ta-dah!

Dear deity - the reviews on those sites…

I’m so glad I bought this bulletproof panel. The next time someone pulls a gun in my office I will feel much safer knowing I can cower behind this 10"x14" panel and have a slight chance that it will stop a bullet from a handgun.

I love the “Stop making stupid people famous” slogan on the Plastic Jesus site as well. That one needs to get more traction.

I like the “money back guarantee” for a bulletproof-vest: If it doesn’t have protected as promised, you can bring it back to the seller, and when its not too damaged or too blood stained, and you also still have the receipt, you get your money back.
… just like the other NRA promises.

Is it required that art result in thin-skinned white people yelling at innocent, long-suffering minimum wage employees? Because I imagine that’s gonna be the result.

That’s the second part of the piece. Recording the public’s interaction with the piece and with each other about the piece.

That’s what gets you the Turner prize.

Doesn’t that happen all the time anyway?
