    Ah, artists.

    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 park 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 predominately 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 Scottish man 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's no African Americans depicted at all. They're just
    three Scottish coal-miners. The guy in the middle went home for lunch."
