Report blurs out nipples in cubist masterpiece to protect viewers from seeing nipples as irregular as their own.


Curiously, the graphics department left the butt untouched. (via Twitter)

Cubist Expressionist painter Pablo Picasso's Women of Algiers (Version O) sold for a record-breaking $172 million a Christie's auction. It's a beautiful work, but it does have a few glaring issues: nipples. There are ladies—well, a series of colorful interplaying shapes and designs that represent ladies—in a state of undress. This put the news team for FOX 5 NY in a bit of a pickle. How can you air something on the news that sorta, kinda, maybe looks like a nipple but isn't a nipple? Blur it!
