Huff Po – A penis gun ended up being bad news for an artist’s face. Bengt Andersson was brutally beaten at a gallery in Malmo, Sweden on Wednesday when he went to retrieve his gun sculpture loaded with penis-shaped bullets. The guards mistook the piece of art for a real weapon and left Andersson bloody, bruised and in need of medical assistance, according to the Local’s translation of a Sydsvenskan daily newspaper story. The guards had been stationed at the gallery to protect Lars Vilks, an artist who has faced numerous death threats and a suspected assassination plot since his drawing of the Muslim prophet Muhammad with the body of a dog was first published by Swedish regional daily Nerikes Allehanda in 2007. While Andersson concedes that at first glance his sculpture could be mistaken for a lethal weapon, he was left flummoxed after his rough treatment at the hands of Vilks’ security detail. “I had no idea that Vilks was there just at then. How was I supposed to know that?” he told the newspaper. Following his beating Andersson was dragged from the gallery, taken to hospitaland then placed in a cell where he spent the following five hours. Andersson told the newspaper that he has filed a report against the guards alleging excessive violence. The bodyguards have however received support for their course of action from the county police. “When they see a weapon they have to intervene like this to protect this subject (Vilks) who is subject to a high level of threat,” said Bertil Isberg Jönsson at Skåne county police to Sydsvenskan.

How about the wacky world of art? Lars Vilks doesn’t go anywhere without an armed force of security guards protecting him because he drew a picture of Muhammad as a dog. Bengt Andersson got his face rearranged because of his dick gun. The Swedish Art Game is hard fucking core. This ain’t Bob Ross on PBS bro. Its not just Happy Little Trees. Not just Happy Accidents. We’re talking about penis guns with dick bullets bro. Talking about armed security guards protecting against the forces of Al Qaeda. Begnt Andersson spending the night locked down in a hospital room.

I guess the lesson to be learned here is that you shouldn’t go waving your cock gun around in a public gallery if you don’t wanna get your ass beat. Just because its loaded with dick bullets doesn’t mean security is gonna take it easy on you.

PS – Heres the Muhammad dog drawing:
