    The 'world' of the Art World!

    At an art exhibition two women were staring at a photograph entitled, "Home for Lunch." The photograph was of three very naked, and very black men, sitting on a park bench. What was unusual was that the men on both ends of the bench had black penises, but the man in the middle had a very pink penis.

    The two women were standing there, staring at the photograph, scratching their heads and trying to figure this out. Along came a bunch of very well to do, very well known art critics of the art world extolling the virtues of this wonderful piece of photgraphic art. There were comments such as -
    "The artist was capturing the plight of the American Negro breaking the many chains of their ancestors servitude as slaves, the pink penis signifies the difficulties of being a black man in a white society"

    "It's such a powerful piece, and does so much for civil liberties of this country"
    "The artist new exactly what he was creating before he produced this and what he has done for the African American culture will never be forgotten"

    "I have heard that the artists great great grandfather actually employed the grand father of Martin Luther King at some stage and this is what gave the photographer such visual power in this creation"

    "This one single photograph has removed the shackles of generations of African Americans and will become a celebrated piece of art for time immortal".


    After listening in to the art critics powerful conjectures, of what to the two ladies was becoming a more powerful photograph by the minute........

    The critics moved on to refreshen up on the free champagne, the photographer happened to walk by and noticed the women's confusion. "May I help you with this photograph that I took? 'he asked.

    "Well, yes" said the one woman. "We were curious about the picture of the black men on the bench. Why does the man in the middle have a pink penis?" " Oh," said the photographer. "I'm afraid you've misunderstood the photo".

    The three men are not African-Americans, they're coal miners from Pennsylvania, Bob McClintock, Billy Fitzpatrick and Rob O'Gallagher and the fellow in the middle Billy Fitzpatrick went "Home for Lunch."
