  1. All that work to subtly adjust the painted image, and then the author completely blows away the joke by using a nonsensical (and superfluous) obscenity. Replace that “$#!+” with “wasted“, and this would have been a little gem of a parody.

  2. I agree with Kilby. (Though I think the intended meaning was a disparagement of his artistic ability, not mood or inebriation.)

    It does take some work to see the dogface, but then it is ineradicable!

  3. If you watch British TV, you get used to this mode of speaking, where to be “a bit shit” at something is a perfectly ordinary expression — I can hear Jo Brand hosting Have I Got News For You in my head saying it right now.

  4. @ larK – Now that you mention it, there is also the comparable expression “$#!+faced“, which would have sounded more “normal” to my (American) ear.

  5. Kilby — it sounds like you think the expression as written has to do with being drunk — it doesn’t, it just means “not good”. đŸ’©

  6. Compare “cr*ppy” in American. In this context, it means he couldn’t draw well enough that his picture looked like the dog he was going for.
