Banksy's 'Sirens of the Lambs'

Whatever Banksy's exact message is here (I've seen some on-line debate about it being everything from a loss of childhood innocence to the more obvious statement about the meat industry), it is far from fluffy. 

It is extremely clever, hard hitting, ironic and is bound to enrage the meat eaters amongst our population into a froth of defensive ludicrous comment.  Better still, perhaps it will knock the Disney loving sentimentalists among our population into the real world and get them to question where that plastic wrapped stuff they call meat in the supermarket actually materialises from. 

The message is in the art and the art is in the message.
