    Default Protester Nails Scrotum To Red Square Cobbles

    A Russian performance artist has been arrested after stripping naked and nailing his scrotum to a cobblestone in Red Square in protest at what he called the country's descent into a "police state".

    Pyotr Pavlensky, 29, said the stunt was a metaphor for "apathy, political indifference and fatalism in modern Russian society".

    Timed to coincide with Police Day, a national holiday celebrating Russia's law enforcement officials, Mr Pavlensky walked on to the square on Sunday afternoon, took off his clothes and took up his excruciating position outside Lenin's Mausoleum, one of the capital's most famous tourist spots.

    Apparently undaunted by the autumnal Russian weather, the protest lasted for around an hour before Mr Pavlensky was removed from the ground by police.

    Officers confronting the artist were initially clearly unsure how to proceed before covering him with a blanket and sending him to hospital in an ambulance.

    He was given basic treatment, but refused to be admitted and accompanied officers to a police station to be arrested instead.

    Explaining the stunt, which he has described as an art installation called "Fixation", Mr Pavlensky said: "It's not the bureaucrats' lawlessness that is stopping the society from action - it is fixation on its own defeat and loss that is nailing us harder to the Kremlin cobblestones.

    "Thus creating a human army of apathetical statues, patiently awaiting their fate.

    "Right now, when those in power are turning our country into one big prison, openly stealing from the population and redirecting financial flows into the enrichment and expansion of police apparatus and other security services."

    I think if anyone can nail their scrotum to anything... they really should undergo a bit of psychiatric evaluation.
    Life is a lot like a p****s - soft, relaxed and hanging free... then a woman makes it hard.
