Not good enough…

Some of you may be aware (but I bet most of you are not) that in our local council district where I live there is an annual council-sponsored and run art exhibition.

During 2008, there were 2 works of art banned because they were deemed to be “too lewd”. That’s right folks, they showed a NAKED FEMALE BREAST.

Never mind that art and artists have been showing boobs for the last 2000 years, its not been good enough for the City of Tea Tree Gully.

So folks, while away in Europe during 2008, we found a few public works of art, or sculpture, or just plain ole stuff, that is NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR TEA TREE GULLY.

Here is episode 1, and I plan on a new photo each week, for quite a long time to come yet.

Good Enough for London. Not Good Enough for Tea Tree Gully.

Yeah but look at the poor Sheila – she’s so busy holding up the roof of the pub that she hasn’t got time to check that the rack’s in place…!

I was at an Italian restaurant the other day, and they had pictures of the statue of David on their kiddies menue (and the adults menu too).

I guess s. africans are way too liberal (which came as a shock to me!)
