Toilet Henge Again: Oh, Banksy, You Kidder!

Admittedly this is a little late, as the article we got it from was posted in June. It got by us at the time but a friend of the blog sent us a link, so here it is, another toilethenge by Banksy, this time part of the exhibit Banksy vs. Bristol Museum.

Not sure why he went for this again. His Glastonbury replica was sufficiently satisfying, and the guerrilla art pinballhenge that may or may not be his struck us as a little fresher. If you know what we mean.

Written on the Welcome to the Museum sign are the words, “Now wash your hands,” which would actually be funnier if they were on a sign on the way out that said “Thank you for visiting the museum.

Long time readers will remember that this is not our first Bristol henge. Rogue archaeologists at the uni there built a snowhenge during the great snow last winter. We’ll be keeping an eye on that city from now on.

Score: 5½ druids this time. This is smaller and less elaborate than last time, just one trilithon and a fallen upright, and it feels a little tired. You never know with Banksy, of course–that may be what he’s going for. He certainly is not worried about his score on Clonehenge. We confess we’re fans and we look forward to whatever he comes up with next, henge or no henge!

  1. Ha ha, well, I planned to wait a day or two but then I had some time and took the opportunity. Also, stats were running a little low today . . . Probably you and I like the Romans vs. Druids better than most people do. It may be an acquired taste. Anyway, many thanks for both!

  2. It figures, the RomansVsDruids remained in the spotlight but only one day. To be topped by some recycled potty humor. What was I thinking when I sent you that link 🙂 The lesson learned here is timing is everything and a good gag can work even better the second time if the timing is right.
