The Universal BullS*t Detector Watch

About Joey Skaggs

Joey Skaggs has been calling bullshit "bullshit" for a long time. Now he has created the Universal Bullshit Detector Watch™ enabling you to call it as you see it, any time, anywhere.

Skaggs is an artist, satirist, prankster, media critic and social activist. Since the sixties, his absurd and often comical performance art has been widely reported as news to an unsuspecting and largely unquestioning public.

By always revealing his ruse and explaining his point, his mission has been to communicate his social & cultural critique as widely as possible. Now, with his Universal Bullshit Detector Watch, he wants everyone to be able to do the same thing with the push of a button!
