The Marching Morons #24,303


Artist ‘Borrows’ a Bag of Cumin, Counts Every Seed & Returns it

Is he absolutely sure that there are not 24,305 grains in that bag? Maybe he should count them again?

BTW, are we really sure he actually counted the grains? maybe he just posed for a picture and wrote in a made up number?

The only thing we can be sure of is that art is deader than a doornail.

I didn't realize that autism was considered an art form.

Any real man would just slap a number on it, and defy you to count them.

At least he didn't try to sell it as "art".

I like when you talk about this type of stuff in your blog. Perhaps could you continue to do this?

This demonstrate is overacted just like every sit-com that has ever been designed. All comedy is performed this way to place emphasis for the parts which are meant being funny. Sadly, not all of them are as funny because the producers imagined they might be.
