Something which has been sitting in my brain for about 2 days : Oh dear Alphonse

work by French humorist Alphonse Allais entitled :

Apoplectic Cardinals Harvesting Tomatoes on the Shore of the Red Sea (Study of the Aurora Borealis)

I have to say I sniggered a little bit when i first saw the work and read the title. It also reminds me abit of Kazimir Malevich’s ‘Black Square’. But both have extremely different message to convey.
