Identification of objects in historical grave treasure near end

( From the Hygiene Times, 26 April 3008 )

Some of the objects found in the underground grave recently discovered near the town of Hygiene, Colorado, have been more fully identified. The plastic sculpture of a deeply tanned overweight nude woman with a pronounced throat in the historical grave from 2099 has been identified as a work by Jeef Kuns (1955-2087) called “Penumbra or Portrait of a Hoarsely Lady”. Apparently it was considered a triumph of American art at its time. The other artefact in the grave, by an unknown 21st century master, is titled “Kermit the Frog Bearing the Burden of a Colander”. It consists of the prostrate cloth doll of a historical television character and a green plastic colander attached to its back. The information on this sculpture’s title was contained in a satchel with mothballs and lavender fastened to the frog’s neck. The perfectly sealed and preserved grave of art collector Gertrude Desperation (1987-2099) was unearthed thanks to a fluky discovery by Alice B. Pleasant last spring.
