    Observations from my friend TiGeRrrrr-LaRryy (inspired by the Andeeeeee monthly (wee hope) gazette, by Michael Smith’s mall-screaming “LIKE!” proposal, and by Tater Tots):

    Maybe have a giant red stamp in the Like font & go about a museum stamping red dripping ink on the masterpieces you LIKE! Van Gogh’s “Potato Eaters” — LIKE!

    Did you see the 1970 film “The Magic Christian”, where, after the painting sold at formal auction, they wrote “SOLD!” in white dripping paint across it & the auctioneer exclaimed, “Sold to that old American twit in the third row!”?

    And it was so funny when Warhol had that one NYC exhibition & when a patron would buy a painting, he had arranged for a crew to immediately take it off the wall to the back — and then bring out an identical replacement copy and stick it up on the wall!

    So illustrative of his philosophy! SOLD!
