The intellectual equivalent of a ham sandwich.

Attn: Ellen (3/21/12)


Back (apologies for my handwriting!)

The text of the postcard is

Dear Ellen,

I recently realized some disappointing news. I can never be a real artist (you have to say that word with ennui).

Why can’t I be an artist?

I smile too much.

But – good news! – I can fake the funk. All I have to do is suck on sour candies at artsy affairs. Good news – disdainful, pained expression in the bag. Bad news – I’ll probably say “blech” from the candy at an inopportune moment.



Why am I sending these postcards?

  1. Call it art if you like. In reality some dude wanted to see a chick in the tub so he made like he was an artist so he could paint her.

    Though I will have to try the sour candy methodology. I too want to look like I have an educated opinion on art.

  2. You’re a postcard writing artist, that’s for damned sure.
