Lesbians Anonymous

Does Lesbians Anonymous actually exist? A quick internet search reveals a few hits including a facebook group with just 29 likes. Now that’s progress. Anyway, our interpretation of this salacious headline also includes the tagline ‘help for women who love women’ which makes it sound more like some kind of self-help group. In fact though, now I think about it, the whole thing looks more like an advert for something akin to a ladies-only version of Grindr.

Like the rest of this sordid little lot these pictures have been reimagined from actual news headlines. I fill my head with this grubby nonsense so you don’t have to. Vive la revolution!

Something from the cellar (Blue Nun)

There I was aimlessly wandering the aisles of my local supermarket searching for an ingredient they undoubtedly didn’t have. I was feeling a little dispirited and glanced at the new wine description they’d put up for Blue Nun. Seeing the halfhearted description made me want to cry a little so I thought I’d see if I could jazz it up somewhat.

The previous description was ‘Popular wine from Germany with a citrusy tang and a hint of honey on the finish. Great with Asian noodles. Taste Guide 4.’ I think mine is a somewhat more honest appraisal of the wine’s true character. I’d like to think these will go unnoticed by the staff until some eagle eyed customer decides to spoil my fun and brings it to their attention. Only time will tell…

Cheers

Amor Vincit Omnia

There’s something going on at Camden Market. Slowly all the huts that make up a lot of the shops are being given a graffiti makeover and we managed to wangle ourselves an invite. Being the gritty street artists that we undoubtedly are we decided to go for something dark and urban.

Only joking. The title of this piece translates as ‘Love conquers all’ and is written above the door in Latin. Combined with the multitude of hearts surrounding this ladies’ face it would seem that she’s got nothing to worry about. Apart from the fact she seems to be eating a padlock. I’m not really sure about that. We added a little quote to the entry step ‘Your body is not a temple, it’s an amusement park. Enjoy the ride.’ It is Camden after all. Then, we added some LED eyes and, hey presto, you’ve got the finished piece. I’m not sure how long the LED’s will last but at least she should hopefully remain in place for some time to come. Thanks to Monoprixx for the daytime shots and the Real Art of Street Art for having us over to paint.

Cheers

Who wants to make love to me?

who_wants_to_make_love_to_me

This sultry little siren is giving you the eyes and making some pretty bold advances. What’s your course of action? WHAT’S YOUR COURSE OF ACTION??

Coed seeks lovers for sex survey

Coed seeks lovers for sex survey

Surely this headline must be American? We don’t use coed over do we? Anyway I’m not sure why this girl needs to advertise for such things but who am I to stand in the way of important research? I’ll volunteer to do my bit. All she really has to do is flash those eyes and she’d get pretty much the same result.

I want a man

I want a man

I want a man

Now there’s a job I could apply for. I just love squandering money, especially when it’s not mine. This lady looks like she’s about to explode if she doesn’t find someone to help her spend her ill gotten gains. Just make sure you don’t ask her where it came from. No one likes being lied to…

I lose control with men

 

I lose control with men

I lose control with men

I’m not sure if this headline is referring to somebody losing control of their man, which can be quite messy (although surely not as messy as losing control of your car, for example) or losing control when she is with men. Which could definitely be bad if say, she was a vampire who loved you, and then lost control and tore you apart limb from limb just for asking what was for dinner. That would definitely be a nuisance. Or perhaps it means she loses her inhibitions when she’s with men in the biblical sense. Who could possibly say for sure. I think it’s best to leave it somewhat ambiguous…
