An ancient chalk carving has been uncovered in Thanet. Believed to have been hidden for years, this fine example of primitive art was found on the pavement outside Caprice near the Lido.
Scholars are already obsessing about its true significance. Is it, perhaps, a reference to TS Eliot’s The Wasteland, composed in part in Margate? The figure is indeed Tiresias-like as it seems to possess both female breasts and male genitals. Or perhaps the artist merely forgot halfway through what he (or indeed she, or indeed both) was drawing.
In any case, if you find any similar examples of Thanet chalk art please feel free to send them in. Especially if they’re accompanied by approximately 100 words of absolute bollocks like the above.

Yes it is art, chalk is green harmless and washes away
