  7. If this is not art, then nothing is art. If this is not art, then nothing is art. If this is not art, then nothing is art.

  8. We begin with the most important point: namely that all teens and llamas involved are safe and sound. With that said, here is what happens when students in America get drunk: THE NYU student who was rescued after being trapped for almost two days in a space between two Lower Manhattan buildings told cops he was drinking at a party and later slipped and fell into the gap, police sources said.
