Pollock paintings are fakes.

I just love the headline.

The authenticity of three paintings attributed to Jackson Pollock has been called into question by anaylsis of the pigments in the paint.
The pigments only became available after Pollock's death. Please note that this kind of analysis is the only kind of technique that is reliable, because anybody can drop paint on a drop cloth and make a big fucking mess.

How many pollocks does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

Two! One to screw in the bulb and one to talentlessly throw paint in incoherent blobs on a canvas and call it art!
