Art Class

Carry her books

Does she love you

Or love you not?

Sweet, Jeremy Little,

Will you carry her books, her laptop?


Jeez and double jeez!

On behalf of Jeremy I can tell you, he’s happy to carry the girl herself, so long as she smiles the right way.

Boy-oh-boy! She aint no lightweight dancer—she’s good! Everyone knows it--girl’s just brilliant isn’t she!

Carry her ‘cross the ocean to Zanzibar. Yes, Zanzibar, or any number of exotic destinations. Free shipping—express delivery!

Quick now! Before she figures out Jeremy’s deadly-tedious plans could prove so ordinary, so downright boring for her...

As boring as spending time measuring a spotted dog for a three piece suit.

Three piece suit—yes! An identical three piece suit to that worn by the great artist, René Magritte; when he worked on those weird and wacky masterpieces of his.

Will anyone here volunteer to be turned to stone? Can I please have a show of hands? Raise your hands--nice and high now please--if you are willing to participate in a fun experiment for our visiting celebrity artist, the fantastic, René Magritte.

Imagine it. Back from the grave. A bunch of crazies like for instance, Salvador Dali.

And we must not single out Salvador, because it’s just too easy.

There are many fine examples of crazy. Some were so crazy you cannot help but feel for them; hearing of their ordeals and taking matters to heart can have you face down on the carpet weeping tears of blood.
