Birmingham: proud of our hideous freaks

Children's drawings unnerve me, and it's only partly the monstrous heads and outlandishly sized limbs. It's also the suspicion that these things are drawn by specialist illustrators, possibly the same ones responsible for that cutesy kids' font with all the backwards Rs.

Anyway, whether you're proudest of Miss Windtunnel 2008, Sinister Blonde Dwarf or Pinhead McGraw, I don't think there was a clue in any of its 360 degrees what the point was. Is the council making sickly posters just to reassure us that they're proud of children? How much money did they spend on giving passers-by a warm, fuzzy feeling? Or, y'know, a cold, deep nausea.
