Homer Simpson beside the Cerne Abbas chalk giant, the old chalk fertility symbol in Dorset, UK
It seems that some pagans are in fury over the “disrespectful” placing of a large painting of Homer Simpson, in biodegradable paint and holding a donut, beside their revered Pagan fertility symbol. According to the Guardian, “Ann Bryn-Evans, joint Wessex district manager for the Pagan Federation says they’ll be doing some rain magic to wash it away”. Aside from the obvious fact that this “magic” isn’t necessary this summer, why the fuss? No publicity is bad publicity. Why don’t they laugh it off as the clever stunt/joke that was intended? The Guardian are asking for suitable captions…Here are my suggestions:
- Pagans stand up for their chalk man
- Hollywood meets Cerne wood
- Stiff resistance to Homer cartoon on Dorset Hill
Look at this cartoon. You have to admire the speed with which some people operate!
