giant panda – or rather an actor dressed up as one.
Performance artist Nate Hill’s Punch a Panda is exactly that; on his website he explains that "If you find yourself angry, frustrated, or just had a bad day, I will come to your house, and you can punch me." Not content with visiting the homes of the angry, Hill has now taken his creation to the streets and actively seeks out pedestrians who are feeling in need of hitting something.
I’m wondering if such an obvious community commodity would find itself in high demand here in the UK; it would certainly fit in with ‘call me Dave’ Cameron’s Big Society agenda and I imagine it might prove extremely popular should some of our Members volunteer for the role. How about it Nate?
