Cool, post your address so I can come buy and paint crap on your house.


If you buy his house, why would he care what you paint on it?

I think that the most appropriate response for Banksy is to put a mural of him being arrested near the police substations.  All of them.

If graffiti art stops being illegal and dangerous, it's going to stop being what it is.  Go ahead and turn it into the hipster version of scrapbooking and see how you like it then.

One time I asked Brasky to dress up as Santa for a Christmas party I was having for my children. Anyway, Brasky shows up as Santa, says I've got goodies for you kids. He reaches into his bag and proceeds to hand out scrap metal and cigarettes to them. Then he takes off his beard and says There's no Santa cause I ate him!

That Brasky guy needs to be locked up and I for one support the NYPD in this endeavor.

There are plenty of building owners that would give Banksy carte blanche, but that wouldn't be as "edgy",  and he'd lose all his "cred", because he's dangerous or something.

Haha, that's the best self-contradictory ramble by a politician I've heard today.


Well, art is art, isn't it? Still, on the other hand, water is water. And east is east and west is west, and if you take cranberries and stew them like applesauce, they taste much more like prunes than rhubarb does. Now, uh... Now you tell me what you know.

So all other crime in NYC is solved, then?

So all crimes must be addressed in order?
So since all murders are not solved, ignore all other crime?
You sound like those people who hate that we spend money on NASA because there are other problems on Earth.

Bslim: Begoggle: Bslim: Begoggle: Bslim: Standard Operating Procedure for NYPD manual dictates that he be summarily executed. Afterwards he will be cuffed, raped with batons, shot for resisting while his lifeless corpse moves during the rape. Sent to Rikers, raped, beaten, then shot again while trying to escape. The police union will then stage protests to defend the heroes.

And when that doesn't happen will you apologize for being an idiot?
Nah.

Let's see what happens, bootlicker.

Bootlicker until somebody damages your property, then you're all WHERE ARE THE COPS

Apparently, they are looking for Banksy.

Because artists should be allowed to deface and destroy others' property without their permission in the name of Art(tm), right?



Hopefully you will cite an example of someone complaining about receiving a free $500,000 piece of art on their property they can rightfully sell if they chose to?  I'm sure you can produce one of those?
