Modern Sculpture in Chicago

I have to admit that Chicago is a fantastic city to live in.

However, we do have some pretty unusual outdoor sculptures that supposedly raise the quality of life here.

Here's one by Picasso. It's huge. No one knows what it's supposed to be, but anyone from Texas can tell you that it's obviously an armadillo:
Here's "The Cloudgate" sculpture which Chicagoans refer to as "The Bean." Actually, it's a giant replica of a spermatazoa (without the tail) that cost, like, 38 grillion dollars.
And here is the sculpture behind the symphony bandshell in Millennium Park.
Truth is, it's not really a sculpture at all. In 1992, an alien space ship from the planet Zork decided to stop for deep dish pizza and crashed in Millennium Park.
(Not many people know this)
Now, tourists think it's a priceless piece of mondern art and say, "Wow, I wish I lived in Chicago!"

I love that bean. And the crashed thing behind the bandshell. And Chicago in general. And deep dish pizza.
