Located in the basement of the Somerville Theatre in Somerville, Mass., is the Museum Of Bad Art (MOBA), a tribute, as its Web site says, to "art too bad to be ignored." (There's a second location in the Brookline Access Television lobby).

Some of the featured works in the aptly named museum include a dachshund juggling brightly colored bones while wearing a hula skirt, a painting of a nude woman riding a crustacean and a spewing Rubik's cube. Then there's the obviously titled painting, "Sunday on the Pot with George," depicting a middle-aged man in tighty-whities at repose on the toilet (which leads to a number of additional questions, actually).

The best part (if you're into belly laughs) may be the interpretive descriptions accompanying each piece. It's a high compliment to the art recovered from thrift stores, garage sales and trash bins by the museum's enthusiastic volunteers [source: Museum of Bad Art].
