It's not a poem, it's a Timbaland song.
Really doen't think it counts as "art" just because some one did something ,it doesn't make it art.

Also, #6 didn't threaten tokill anyone, they offered... if the person showed up, but at no point did they "threaten" anyone.
Calm down, better yet, call the cops so they can laugh at you.

I didn't say it was good art, but it's art nonetheless.

Wikipedia defines art as:

Art refers to a diverse range of human activities and artifacts, and may be used to cover all or any of the arts, including music, literature and other forms. It is most often used to refer specifically to the visual arts, including mediums such as painting, sculpture, and printmaking. However it can also be applied to forms of art that stimulate the other senses, such as music, an auditory art. Aesthetics is the branch of philosophy which considers art.

Timberland song, sorry I don't listen to Timberland. it looked like a poem.....

I'm allergic to flowers....SO I"M GOING TO HAWAII! He must've HAD to go there. Turning down a Lei is a no no to the locals, but if he has a flower allergy he sure has a lot of dodging to do in HI.

What the hell does Wikipedia know about art?
People think if they do anything, outside of their job, it's art!
What crap, it takes skill to be an artist, a monkey with a brush or a pen is still a mokey.
To lable anyone who does "something" as an artist, is the same as saying anyone who holds a baseball is an athlete, it's just not true.

I had to google the song....

Basically it is a rude thing to do. Those leis cost money. Not sure who paid for it, but it is a common thing in Hawaii for greeters to do this.

GET WELL SOON BRIT - have the "authorities" arrived yet? Just wonderin'...

"Punishable by time behind bars" - WOW! You have so much inside knowledge John! You must work for the FBI. By the way, that comment was obviously not a threat of any kind. Unless of course "jump start my metabolism," happens to know where "get well soon brit's" "office" is and decides to actually make the trip there.... However, unlikely someone who can't even spell loser has an office of any kind.

Well, I live in Maui, Hawaii.

It is considered a bit rude, but at a hotel it is not really a big deal. I can tell by the lei, that it is a hotel lei and everyone gets one when they arrive at the hotel.

Now, if you refuse one in a more serious setting that is different. If you get one from a loved one or at a wedding etc, then it is definately rude.

Many people just accept the lei and then take it off later. That is better than refusing it.

Basically, he couldn't be bothered. Getting a lei from a stranger is not a big deal and he did not offend anyone here in Maui.

It probably would have been nice if he accepted it since the lady probably wanted the kiss and hug that comes with it, but oh well. =-)

ALOHA from Maui!
