This poor Teddy has no idea what he's in for. Thankfully, in artist Geoffrey Ricardo's hands, it's fame and immortality. But considering Teddy is a stuffed animal, he was already immortal, but, anyway.... First, Teddy  was unstuffed. Then Ricardo rolled white paint all over him.

Now, personally, I think this is kinda genius, so I'm definitely in the 'cool' camp. What do you think? Was the mistreatment of a Teddy worth it? (To see a video of the entire process, click here.)
