Vincent Van Gogh is a liar

Van Gogh claims he cut off his own ear and gave it to some hooker at a bar. Well it appears that his former friend and fellow painter Paul Gauguin cut his ear off while defending himself in a sword fight.

Paul Gauguin is the coolest, strangest and most depressing artist of his time. His paintings of French Polynesia are classic and now this tale about cutting off Van Gogh's ear just supplants his legacy.
