One of Tasmania’s most talked-about artworks, Wim Delvoye’s Cloaca Professional, ends with a pile of shit. Literally.

No, we’re never going to get sick of cute animals running on the field at serious sporting contests.

Especially when they are likely the best player all game, as in the case of a cat which ran onto the field of a Miami Dolphins and Baltimore Ravens game on Thursday night.
