Dorid has a fun Mr. Picasso Head challenge up. The piece you see above was the result of hours of arduous labor in my special lab. Of course, I couldn't resist also writing in my two cents on the subject. Just remember that when you laugh, try not to do so while holding your paint brush, as paint has a tendency to splatter. and I just mopped the floor.

Greetings. My name is Phil Picasso, and I will be teaching you the art of art today. No questions need be asked, I will tell you all you need to know. You in the back, I trust you'll find what I have to say far more interesting than that silly book. Give it to me, now.

The first thing you need to know about art is that I am the best. You will find no better artist than me, so don't bother looking. My class will make you all stunningly amazing painters. Remember that, it just might be on the quiz.

Art is comprised of three letters. They mean nothing by themselves. That's why we put them together to say "art," so that they have real meaning. Get the picture?

Now, what is art? Art is beauty. Art is life. Art is love. Art is soul. If you want it put in the simplest terms, I say: "art is." That's really all you need to know. If you say it's art, then it's art. And if anyone questions you about your art, you may hereby glare at said person, squint, remove your beret and firmly slap them across the face. You can then hurl wild accusations at them about their mother.

Okay, enough lecture. Now, let's get painting, shall we?
