I am Banksy and I Cannot Draw Horses.

The image, included in the Facebook post for this essay, makes it all the more awesome.

[...] One time, I got one horse looking pretty good, until I got to the tail, which totally threw me. It just looked like a lightening bolt, and that distracted from the mural that read ONE NATION UNDER CCTV. I painted over the horsey, and though the piece (a strong but playful indictment of increasing government surveillance and unchecked jingoism) eventually sold for thirty thousand U.S. dollars, in my heart, I knew it was horseless rubbish, and that I was a fraud.
