[QWP] In a locked post at iconrants, keleri asks:

"Isn't that something you're absolutely not supposed to do in art (unless you know what you're doing and do it anyway), cut something off or put a little bit of something else in along with the subject? And, oh god, correct me if I'm wrong, I mean, countdown to wankery in 3, 2, 1, but wasn't that what was always wrong with Hitler's paintings or something? AHHPLEASEDON'THURTME"

to which mightygodking answers,

"Kind of. It went something like this.

HITLER: Here is my final application piece, Herr Art Judge.
ART JUDGE: Mr. Hitler, I must say, your overall talent is good enough that - wait, what's that little thing in the corner there?
HITLER: That's part of the art.
ART JUDGE: But it's so tiny. I can't read it.
HITLER: Well, you're not supposed to be able to.
ART JUDGE: That's really fucking annoying.
HITLER: Well, I was trying to comment on -
ART JUDGE: Wait, I think I can make out this part. "Death to the pews." ...that doesn't even make sense!
HITLER: No, but -
ART JUDGE: You know what? Screw you, Hitler. You'll never make it as an artist. "Death to the pews." Fucking Dadaist.

The moral of the story, I think, is obvious."
