It’s the time of year again for Banksy to do some mildly radical things under the guise of his super-secret super-hype guerilla mystique in order to be ultra-relevant again. Taking the bait, we are once again eating his shit up, perpetuating his self-fulfilling prophecy of being famous by acting like he doesn’t want to be famous.
“But there’s no way round it — commercial success is a mark of failure for a graffiti artist. We’re not supposed to be embraced that way. When you look at how society rewards so many of the wrong people, it’s hard not to view financial reimbursement as a badge of self-serving mediocrity.”
Have a Big Gulp of relevance…not to difficult to find in the Emirate of Bloomfukistan.

Banzai with Banksy is fun
A new kind of bullet and gun
Now Liberty’s torch
Like flowers that scorch
Show tyrants that they haven’t won
