8 or so bees in my bonnet

[music |bt-love on haight street]

this story is ironic on so many levels:

'With Banksy originals raking in more than £100,000 at sotherby's even the
police are beginning to treat urban guerilla art as rather more than urban
graffiti - even when it takes the mick out of them. a wall of the Prince Albert
pub in Brighton plays host to one of Banksy's two Kissing Coppers stencils. The
other is in London. The boys in blue down in Brighton took a very dim view when
two middle aged men who objected to the picture indulged in their own bit of
urban guerilla art and painted it over in black. The senior delinquents were
duly nicked, and have since been fined for criminal damage and given suspended
sentences. Curiously the anti-establishment Banksy does not call me back to say
how pleased he is at the good work of the police.'
