Hunting Groceries

For one week in 1992, German artist Christian Jankowski "hunted" his groceries in the supermarket with a bow and arrow. From his website:

Jankowski shot down frozen chickens, butter, toilet paper, and various other "essentials." His game, if edible, was not just dead, it was processed on a mass scale. Thus the reaction of the woman working the checkout counter: she remained wholly unimpressed by the trophies of his "bargain hunt," which she scanned with the arrows still sticking out of them.

Imagine trying to go into a supermarket with a bow and arrow nowadays to hunt your groceries.

Yes, it would be silly today, when you could just use an RPG.

His 25 year old kid certainly appreciates that this is how he went and got condoms.
