I wish they'd take it down..

The smug looking eejit surveying Dame Street from above the front gate of Trinity - who he? Anybody able to enlighten me?

I've heard it's the new provost but the interweb fails to back that up...

The first to answer correctly wins a great big bag of kudos.

To be honest, I had just assumed it was a commemoration of a student who had died, but it turns out it's a little more wanky than that:

Wanky. Very good word for it.

I suppose the fact we're talking about it and wondering who the fuck he is means the artist would feel his work is succesful.

Of course, people would also start talking about it if I stood at the top of Grafton street in a pink tutu committing frottage against Molly m
Malone.

Oh for fuck's sake. I think I was happier not knowing what it was about. Most wanky indeed.

Bloody hell, today's 'artists' are such a waste of space - where are Monet and Renoir and the other lads when you need 'em?

Kitty Cat - Is it still there? I've happily avoided town this last week.

AG - Kicking their heels. Lazy bastards.
