Margate Chosen As Site Of 'Giant Arse'

The Arts Council announced today that a huge, new 'iconic' sculpture has been commissioned, and will be in place in the traditional seaside town of Margate by the end of the decade.

The giant sculpture, designed to help regenerate the south coast town which has seen better days, will be more than 200 feet high, the tallest in the UK, and will dominate the seafront. It follows the success of the Angel of the North on Tyneside, and Manchester's B of the Bang!.

The news, though, has received a mixed reception among local residents, one of whom described the sculpture as 'looking like a giant arse'.

Contractors are now being approached with a view to construction work beginning on the giant arse by 2008.

Do you know if the arse will be male or female?
I'm not sure I want to be living on the other side of a blokes arse, though I'm sure it would be great for the pigeons.
Have the plans been approved or do I still have time to get my 'but' in?

I've heard the new arse will be on the site of the old Sun Deck, is that right?

I wonder who's to pose for the sculpture? Who can we think of who would stick her arse on Margate seafront? ...... NO! She would'nt! Not even the famed whittler of liverbirds would stoop......

Would she?

You may have a point, Nethercourt. We'll have to keep a close eye on our Tracey's derriere from now on.
