Here is the aforementioned paintings for your viewing ‘pleasure’…

Below is the caption the artist eh..captined on the paintings s/he placed in the National Portrait Gallery. It has now been revealed the the police are ‘investigating.’ Investigating what exactly? Someone painting a satirical portrait? Get a f*cking life, the government. Investigate the crowd of shysters in the banks instead.

THE CAPTION

“Brian Cowen, Politician, 1960-2008. This portrait, acquired uncommissioned by the National Gallery, celebrates one of the finest politicians produced by Ireland since the foundation of the state. 

“Following a spell at the helm of the Department of Finance during a period of unprecedented prosperity, Brian Cowen inherited the office [of] Taoiseach in 2008. 

“Balancing a public image that ranges from fantastically intelligent analytical thinker to big ignorant f**ker from Offaly, the Taoiseach proves to be a challenging subject to represent.” 

Day 1 - Serious ‘Brian Cowen Naked’ news broadcast:

Day 2 - Serious ‘Brian Cowen Naked’ news apology:

Well now! Brian Cowen! Naked! Be still my beating ladygarden!

What do you think of al that people!? Do you think our national broadcaster should have obviously been forced asked to make such a public apology?  Was the story in poor taste? Did it undermine whatever power or prestige you think the office of Taoiseach still holds? …and the big question : 

What Would Barack Do?

Discuss..!

Brian Cowen should have took it on the chin (or stomach) in fact to show his lighter side he should have offered to buy them. I think Barack would have sure when they met didnt he crack a funny saying he could be Brians cousin lol

this is mad isnt it they were saying on ray darcy this morning that the police approached them because they said on air on monday that they had the artist’s email address so when they said they wouldnt give it to them the policeman said they’d get a warrent and that the artist could be charged with incitment of hatred and criminal damage how mental is that!! i also think its funny that the news had to apologise to cowen but pat kenny didnt have to apologise for the blacked up comment this country is backwards!!

I’m tooooooootally off topic at this stage, but my constitutional law lecturer wants to cover this next week in class, we’re looking at the charges and how far away from having a leg to stand on the DPP would be in bringing any. It’ll be some laugh, I’m really looking forward to it! (Ok I’ll take off my nerd glasses now.)

47.  Stylebitch (B)
March 26th, 2009 at 6:30 pm

That’s not off topic at all Niamh - in fact the opposite. i’d be quite interested to know what he has to say on it - keep us updated?

*P.s i’m going to upload everyone’s drawings/photos of Biffo after my tea, so keep sending them into to us at info (at) the stylebitches.com

Just wanna point out how poor and wooden RTE news is, as it really pisses me off…

The newscaster says, using all her journalistic adeptness, that “The portrait of Brian Cowen, who is not thought to have posed for the anonymous artist….”

No Shit he didn’t pose for the painting! Did they really think they had to cover their asses just in case, in some weird parallel world, it turns out Cowen did pose for it?

50.  Stylebitch (L)

Was it RTE’s attempt at humour?
