Si Si Comrade Curtin!


Whilst on a recent holiday in Buenos Aires, Mr Shaun Curtin was snapped outside the Communist Party headquarters in Sarimento. Sources close to Mr Curtin maintain that he was on a 'purely diplomatic mission', eager to discuss ideological positions and political philosophy. Exactly what position Curtin took in these discussions remains unclear. It seems that during Curtin's visit to South America, he exhibited some mysterious behaviour. One source travelling with him, a Dr Giger, reported Mr Curtin hooded and disguised as a Jedi Lord. "Shaun was acting very strange, he gets into the taxi saying 'follow that cab'. It was just so.....weird." Exactly whom Mr Curtin was following is unknown. Curtin is well known for his outspoken views on Marxism, Trotskyism, Stalinism, Capitalism, Secular Humanism, Doing The Housework In Stilettos, and more recently, Elephant Vaginas, but THAT my dear friends is another story........

Mr Curtin would like it noted that he was impersonating a Sith Lord, NOT, as reported a Jedi Lord.

For the record, I was specifically discussing the artistic merit of an art piece at the Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires involving a 'presumably female' elephant and her rather large and blackened vagina. I innocently thought it to be an appropriate segue from the previous conversation regarding ivory. The white phallic shape of the ivory contrasting nicely with the 'sorry if people are squeamish when I mention' blackened vagina. Please forgive my insensitivity and I hope noone choked on the tasty chile con carne.

I always knew he was a cryptofascist marxist stuck in the closet

Sadly, I suspect there is a little bit of cryptofascist Marxism in all of us.. Alas, my attempt to engage in a pleasant conversation on art was met with inexplicable hostility. Fear not, I shall retreat to my cold emotionless skepto-metaphysical naturalist bubble....The horror, the horror....

p.s Can I draw your attention to the latest Jesus and Mo....

inexplicable hostility.....I liked the comment about the basketballs....

Easy there! I was lamenting over my ignorance in art criticism. We need to get someone on the ground in Buenos Aires to film this elephant art exhibition so we can discuss this issue in greater detail. Did you happen to catch the latest Jesus and Mo?
