Comedian Justin Cousson is turning his roommates leftovers into passive-aggressive art

Everyone who lived in a shared apartment at least once will know the struggle of that one roommate who seems unable to put their stuff away.

Whether it’s overflowing bins or just not bothering to pick up after themselves, they can be infuriating.

Now one comedian has found the perfect way to strike back – and it doesn’t involve drawing up a cleaning rota.

Justin Cousson is turning his roommate’s leftovers into a passive-aggressive art gallery.

And it’s very, very shady.

Cousson puts up little signs like you see in galleries, describing each picture.

And just like in any other gallery, all items are priced. It’s art, after all.

So far, the shady exhibition includes 30 pieces, he said on Twitter, and they’re spread all around the apartment. Like this pair of shoes which didn’t quite make it home.

Other examples include a mixed-media ‘cheese knife’ – used and clearly abandoned on the counter – worth $500 and a sour-cream covered spoon left in the sink before leaving town for four days. That one’s valued at $3,4000, by the way.

Or these two:

‘Knife left out on counter in striking distance of knife block, having been only used to remove seal of ice cream carton, which was also left on the counter, leaving quite the sight as the last thing I saw before I gratefully left town for two weeks’.

‘Knife left out on counter in striking distance of knife block, having been only used to remove seal of ice cream carton, which was also left on the counter, leaving quite the sight as the last thing I saw before I gratefully left town for two weeks’.

‘Knife left out on counter in striking distance of knife block, having been only used to remove seal of ice cream carton, which was also left on the counter, leaving quite the sight as the last thing I saw before I gratefully left town for two weeks’.

‘Boxes left on couch because what even is breaking them down and recycling or even leaving them not on the couch.’

‘Boxes left on couch because what even is breaking them down and recycling or even leaving them not on the couch.’

‘Boxes left on couch because what even is breaking them down and recycling or even leaving them not on the couch.’

But our favorite might be the case of the ‘forgotten milk left to actively go rancid in fridge far beyond sell-by date’.

Initially valued at $700, Cousson later raised the price to $900 as his roommate allowed the milk to further go off.

And then his roommate finally caught on, it seems, because suddenly that piece of art was inexplicably stolen.
