Hello visitor! This was sent in by regular reader:
!!! END TABLE !!! BY ARTIST -$500
Yes! It’s an art! By an artist!! And not only that, but the artist THEMSELVES was painted by “EDC.”
Now, I’m not sure in which sense artist was painted by EDC. On the one hand, it could be that artist is a fictional creation, drawn purely by this EDC character, and who in turn created the end table within their own fictional milieu. Imagine a portrait of a carpenter building an end table, painted by EDC.
Of course, that means the end table is fictional too, and is therefore probably not terribly useful for holding up that “Complete History of Spuds” coffee table book you got for Groundhog Day.
I suppose you could have some sort of horrible Escher-esque recursive loop where artist is fictional, but has somehow managed nonetheless to create a real end table, but leaving that possibility aside, we’re drawn to the inescapable conclusion that artist is real, and EDC has, for whatever reason, covered them in paint.
Which is fine. As long as artist didn’t get any paint on the end table itself, I don’t really care if they’ve been graffitied by Étienne de Crécy, or the Eurovision Dance Contest, or whatever.
Thanks for the link, Ross!
