Dallas, Texarse - A Texas gallery is being sued for millions of dollars after an exhibit by painter George W Bush was accused of infecting a visitor with canine distemper by manifesting malignant hexoplasm during a guided tour.
Doctors at the Dallas Seedy Sign Eye Hospital who are treating the so far unnamed victim said the viral infection can be lethal to humans and is often triggered by ingesting a common pigment-free whitewash - called distemper - used by artists in preparation of color-wash backgrounds.
This morning they slapped a 'remove and detoxify' notice on the Bush painting which the ex-president cobbled together from photos and from memory as a 69th birthday present for his old mucker Vlad.
Executed in oils on canvas at his Predator Chapel Ranch studio, Bush's painting of the Russian leader's Mongolian mastiff-shitzhu cross Koni has now been withdrawn from the Texas Bonesmens Gallery, accused of malign spectral activity in a confined federal property.
Next month's exhibition at the Guggenheim is now on hold although a British leg of the same tour at the Isle of Dogs Gallery in Barking, East London may still get the nod to proceed.
