Banksy in America

Regular readers will know of the rabbit's fondness for graffiti artist Banksy. Our man has been active in the US as well as in England and indeed the West Bank. Here are a few of his American goodies.

Los Angeles.

New York - another graffiti artist, KH1 by 'name' has graffited over Banksy's graffiti! Tsk!

Los Angeles again. I particularly like that one.

Chinatown, San Francisco

The above is nothing to do with Banksy, I say hastily. Like the good cricket anorak I am, I tuned in to Test Match Special this morning. Whose plummy tones do I hear? Henry Blofeld, of course! What is the first thing he says? What else but 'my dear old thing'? The man is an endless delight. For the uninitiated, he is supposed to be a cricket commentator. His commentaries do touch on the match but he is also notorious for launching off on to whatever random matters come into his mind. This morning his breakfast was the first topic under discussion. Then he was commentating in tandem with Phil Tufnell. I would pay to listen to that. Then he suddenly started to hold forth about kippers.

One of the glorious sounds of the English summer...

Hey Rabbit! The Maven wasn't familiar with Banksy and She appreciates the introduction!

Hope you're having a great weekend!

Blofeld and Banksy, two very British legends!

All - quite so, great isn't he? DHG - perhaps Blofeld and Banksy are the same person. His dad gave his name to the Bond villain - Blofeld I mean, not Banksy.

As graffiti goes, it's pretty cool.

I just sent you a piece about Banksy from BBC London. It seems he was caught on CCTV (damn big brother!).

Somehow, I don't have the time for cricket, which is a shame. It was one of the things that kept me sane through School and University.

My verification word is "mishang"

Not enough appeals there!
