Understanding Art!

#1
A couple attending an art exhibition at the National Gallery were
staring at a portrait that had them completely confused. The
painting depicted three very black and totally naked men sitting on a bench.

Two of the figures had black penises, but the one in the middle had a
pink penis. The curator of the gallery realized that they were having
trouble interpreting the painting and offered his assessment. He went on
for nearly half an hour explaining how it depicted the sexual
emasculation of african-Americans in a predominantly white
patriarchal society. "In fact" he pointed out, "some serious
critics believe that the pink penis also reflects the cultural
and sociological oppression experienced by gay men in contemporary society."

After the curator left, a Yorkshireman approached the couple and
said, would you like to know what the painting is really about?"
"Now why would you claim to be more of an expert than the curator
of the gallery?" asked the couple. "Because I'm the guy who
painted it," he replied. "In fact, there are no African-Americans depicted at all.
They're just three Yorkshire coal-miners. The guy in the middle
went home for lunch."
