Default Setting the Trend

News that 'artist', Spencer Tunick, had persuaded 1700 Tyneside residents to
pose naked for his latest exercise in self-indulgence provoked much
merriment amongst residents of the North Yorkshire town of Grimmclogge
(writes Bend magazine's arts correspondent, Ashley DuPonce)

For, as with so many apparently radical ideas that are touted in the major
urban conurbations as 'New' and 'Startling', Grimclogge had already beat
them to it - in this case, by nearly two years!

It was August 2003 that Grimclogge society hostess, Irma Scragg, appeared in
front of the towns Stipendiary Magistrates, charged with operating a brothel
at her home, and offered the defence that the scores of naked writhing
bodies discovered by Police officers who took part in a late night raid on
the Wellington Street address, were not being serviced by prostitutes but
were, in fact, part of an 'art installation' that was being prepared for
mark the granting of a royal charter to the town in 1437

Asked by Magistrate and local conservative Councillor, Fred Martinet
(Grimmclogge West), why the art work was being 'installed' nearly Thirty Two
years before the planned 600th anniversary celebrations of the charter, Ms
Scragg replied that it was a work of profound cultural significance and the
genius behind the work, her Cousin, the little known Lithuanian contemporary
artist Mikhail Bollox, had insisted upon commencing rehearsals early in
order to leave nothing to chance on the big day.

"He's such a perfectionist", commented Ms Scragg - adding, "Mikhail has told
us that we must practice several times a day right up to the eve of the
anniversary"

When Magistrate Martinet interjected and suggested that, far from having an
artistic cousin named Bollox, Ms Scragg was talking them, he was interrupted
by the two other members of the Bench, Councillor Wendy ('Trendy Wendy')
Marx (Labour, Grimmclogge East) and Mrs Beatrice Homely (Lib-Dem,
Grimmclogge Central) who pointed out that Ms Scragg and her Cousin were
contributing to the diversity of the Town - particularly her cousin, who was
apparently bringing, at his own expense, many Lithuanian peasant girls over
to the UK in order to participate in the Installation.

"We must all, as members of this exciting Mult-ethnic community, fully
embrace all the traditions and customs that play their part in weaving the
rich tapestry of cultural diversity", said Councillor Marx, "I am sure that
no-one here wants to implement the sort of reactionary policies that
proscribe valid works of art in the name of cultural imperialism!"

There then followed a ten minute adjournment to allow discussion of the case
to take place between the Magistrates, during which, Councillor Martinet
could clearly be heard shouting, "You bloody silly Cow! - that weren't no
'work o' art! - yon woman were running a bloody knocking shop!" - remarks
that occasioned a furious outburst from Ms Marx, during which she accused
Councillor Martinet of racism, imperialism, and of being a jack-booted Nazi
bigot!, while Mrs Homely was heard asking in a plaintive voice for someone
to explain to her what a 'knocking shop' was.

At length, after further heated exchanges during which the Commission For
Racial Equality was mentioned several times by Ms Marx, the Magistrates
resumed their places on the Bench and delivered their verdict that Ms Scragg
was, indeed, engaged in a legitimate expression of artistic creativity, and
dismissed all charges against her.

Since the hearing, her Cousin has redoubled his efforts to bring young
female artists from Lithuania, and rehearsals for the installation are
carried out several time a day, and attract much public interest, as
evidenced from the queues of art lovers who now routinely line up by Ms
Scragg's door.

Swat's this rambling got to do with chocolate?
Closest thing I can cipher is *Counciller Martinet's* exclaimation of "You
bloody silly cow!"
And the idea of blood in milk chocolate...abhorant really.
(Hey you misspelled councelor, so I can misspell abhorant)

Liken unto low grade milk being made into chocolate milk...and that was
proved trash some years ago.

So HERE HERE!
