But is it art? Who’s painting turds in Haig Park?

By johnboy - 16 November 2012 31

painted turd

They say you can’t polish a turd, but you can roll it in glitter.

Quite why someone is spray painting the dog droppings in Haig Park however is a bit of a mystery.

I had gleeful visions of Territory and Municipal Services paying someone to mark them and someone else to remove them (rather than give one man a shovel).

Sadly TAMS deny all knowledge after one of the better media inquiries they’ve had:

I have been informed that neither TAMS staff or contractors are responsible for the spray painting of dog poo in Haig Park.

So aside from looking forward to your caption contributions, and possible appearances on CanMeme, anyone care to explain?

What’s Your opinion?

Have you never seen the poo of a golden retriever before?

I enjoy your posts, they are like reading Wilde. I laugh a good laugh every time.

I bet the “Artist” thinks that the sun shines out of their ass.

Surely the better question would be, “Who isn’t painting turds in Haig Park?”

I don’t know what I like, but I know a crapload about art.

Public art?

The title had me thinking someone was painting portraits of poo, not actually painting dog turds, which would have brought up an interesting question as to the nature of art.

But this, well, my only thought is that some community minded citizen who is too lazy/prideful to pick up other people’s dog-shite is hoping to aid pedestrians in avoiding it by painting it bright colours.

Has anyone tagged it yet?

It is the latest super hero: they call him/her the PPP (Public Poo Protector). The PPP ensures the safety of our soles as we walk the mean streets of this fair capital. In other words, hi-viz poop.

Maybe it’s the latest fad for spray paint vandals.
