Random Insults Day 2 – Bill Henson still can’t paint

26 Oct

There’s nothing like a good old Aussie tall poppy put down. This little witticism against controversial photographer Bill Henson on Mitchell St., Northcote is just around the corner from Bill’s home. I’m sure it’s not the most insulting thing that’s been directed at him, however, considering he’s been accused of creating artwork verging on child pornography by more than one conservative zealot. Still I like the tack this insult takes. As Homer Simpson once put it, “It’s funny because it’s true”.
