That's how I feel as well. Satire is one thing; plain vulgarity is something else. Actually, I don't find it to be satirical at all. Satire requires wit, and I see no wit here...just cheap sensationalism.:ermm:

I understand the artist's point of view, and the humor behind it, but I think that this painting is ugly. The image of Frederik scratching himself is just icky. There is a way to be satirical without being vulgar, but the artist failed to paint the image without vulgarity.
Lol. Maybe it is :p

It's all good though, you Aussies do have a great sense of humour. All my Aussie friends find this portrait funny, and all my Canadian friends don't get the humour in it. Lol.

I don't find it funny either, and I'm an American. ;)
