'I like whippets'

If ever there was a living, breathing definition of an idiot savant...

Or Jekyll and Hyde...

Or a charming sociopath...

Or maybe a loveable rogue?

It's Joey Barton. That he's a mediocre footballer only makes me like the guy more.

Of course, the art world is ridiculous, but what could be more absurd than a much-maligned Premier League jailbird in the polite environs of the National Portrait Gallery, talking to a Guardian journalist of all hacks, about an artist as revered as Freud? The funny thing is, by all accounts Freud was twice the sociopath that Barton is.
