David Shrigley's giant thumb has just been unveiled on the Fourth Plinth

The new Fourth Plinth commission (titled, simply enough, 'Really Good') was unveiled today and we were there for the big ceremony. But it wasn’t just us, oh no. Mayor of London Sadiq Khan was there too, introducing artist David Shrigley’s massive thumb. It’s a big positive sculpture for London in a time when we really need it. Here's a picture of it looking miserable in the rain while wearing its massive sheath. Ooh-er. 

 

But that's not all, we spoke to the artist himself and got him to give things the thumbs up or thumbs down. Our favourite thing he likes? Bidets: 'Scented toilet paper, get rid of it. I'm a bidet man, given the choice. Everybody likes a bidet, don't they? Once you figure what it's for, bidets are really useful.'
