To the certain disappointment of thousands of children, it appears that performance artist Joaquin Blanco will not top last year’s massive “Garbage Cane” Christmas art installation with a new work of art in L.A.’s Westchester neighborhood.
A reader reports on his conversation with the tabloid prankster:
“Peggy Hippdom, mentioned in last year's press release as Blanco's longtime companion, has put her foot down. A massive canister lid sculpture (Blanco always tries to reuse old pieces), mounted on the house roof depicting a 40-foot Rudolph peering over the top, was rejected. Blanco spent four nights on the couch before relenting and agreeing to string only five sets of lights from Sav-on. He's devastated and has returned to his other job as a handyman to the stars. However, I get the impression there might be some mischief in his future. Just don't tell Hippdom.”
