"Take me to the Moron-in-Chief”

The other day while on my way to the National Museum of Natural History (the building behind the eraser) in Washington, D.C., I took the scenic route through the National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden. When I was passing by the giant typewriter eraser, I remembered this Zippy strip from last July.

Curiously, this thing by Oldenburg and van Bruggen was erected not too long ago when typewriters had already become obsolete. Was this some kind of nostalgic art experiment or is Zippy onto something?
