    The real question is, "How many Sur-realist painters does it take to screw in a light bulb?"
    The answer is, "Just two, but how they get into the light bulb is anybody's guess. . .of course they are surrealists, so it doesn't really matter."

    First :

    give me a nordic-walker a pipe and some midget-elephants and let Mr .Qootsie answer this question.


    If a surrealist must be the one too judge this picture he probably went out to buy a role of toiletpaper and go to a soccergame instead.;-)
