Over-zealous German cop slaps parking ticket on car sculpture


A cop in Karlsruhe, Germany was in no mood for playful art installations. None too pleased with artist Erwin Wurm's red Mercedes truck arching up against a building, he issued a ticket. And what's the going rate for parking halfway up a wall? Apparently $33 (or 30 Euros). That'll teach the sculpture from blocking a pedestrian sidewalk!
