America needs a good laugh right now. Just imagine if there was something going around the country right now just to give people that laugh that they need, even if it’s for a brief second. Sure, the presidential candidates are doing their part but what America needs right now is a giant human butt on a truck.
Comedian Kurt Braunohler is doing just that with a sculpture he calls the “Love Butt” and it’s exactly what it sounds like. It’s a giant, caucasian butt sitting on the back of a flatbed truck that has a giant heart tattoo on it that reads “butt.” So it’s either just a way to get people to laugh or a thinly veiled metaphor for the importance of self-esteem.

Comedian Kurt Braunohler who brought you the “Love Butt”.
Baunohler told his fans that he’s doing this as part of a pilot he’s shooting for a new Comedy Central show called “Better. Dumber. Faster. with Kurt Braunohler” but he’s also got a higher purpose in mind. He told WCAV TV in Charlotesville, Virginia where he recently made a stop with the “Love Butt” that “The world is a pretty tough place to live in, so we thought we could brighten people’s days with a bit of randomness and that is why I am driving around a giant butt.”
If people are anything like us, then the sight of a giant butt is causing them to keep a smile plastered on their face for the entire day. Braunohler deserves some kind of Nobel Prize for Peace or, even better, the Nobel Prize for Butts because knowing that the Nobel people have one would keep the smiles going for a whole lifetime.
