  • Okay, i was a little nervous, and I seem to have exaggerated some things slightly. Only THREE noses were bitten off the chocolate busts at the Venice Biennale, and it only happened at two other venues– not three. If there are any other factual errors, just chalk it up to enthusiasm and my desire to tell good stories.
