A TELEGRAPH reader has demanded it runs a story about how a gallery cleaner swept up some modern art because it looked like rubbish.
Windsor-based retired tax accountant Norman Steele said: “I buy the Telegraph every day hoping to read about how some Tracy Emin-type ‘contemporary art’ got thrown into a bin accidentally by a cleaning lady.
“I read about it happening last year and that is still my favourite thing in the world. It just about sums up everything about the disappointing way of life that these youngsters have adopted.
“Even if it’s totally made up, please can they print it so that I can read it out to my wife, emphasising phrases like ‘toilet-themed installation’, ‘a heap of rubble with used underpants on top’ and ‘dustpan and brush’.”
He added: “Modern art is not art – it is made by foreign gays.
“Real art is well-executed oil paintings of hunting scenes.”
