Thank you Anna and Bernhard Blume for this 1986 parody of housewives who have been in the kitchen too long, domesticity run amok, with potatoes of their own volition (that’s what the placard next to it said) flying all about.
It’s part of an exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC that I recently enjoyed to the utter max.
And, it prepared me for today, Election Day 2010.
I just returned from casting my vote.
Every democrat on the ballot got my vote. I don’t care if he or she was a felon and shouldn’t have been on the ballot in the first place, I’d have voted for the bastard.
Potatoes are flying of their own volition today. The rules of gravity and common sense simply don’t apply. Something other than reason is operating and I’m calling it Spud Physics.
I’m secretly hoping several of those flying spuds hit those drones of the airwaves tonight as they begin their “analysis”. Watch for the scroll on the bottom of your TV screen:
