#20th Century Bomb: 1950
No, this is not 'art'...
A CHILD CAN PAINT BETTER!
This world is going to Heck...
NEW YORK CITY (1950)...Perhaps now we’ve seen it all: An artist in New York City, Jackson Pollock, has the unmitigated gall to pour, drip, and fling paint onto a canvas and then sell it to mopes and swells for big bucks under the guise of “modern art.”
"Why, this is simply disgusting," pontificated Sidney Braunshire, a gallery owner on Fifth Avenue. "My pet chimpanzee, Puffy, can paint better than that and he's retarded. It’s nothing more than 'modern c**p' — you hear me? And because there are suckers who know nothing of art, of course Pollock's works command big dollars."
A ten-by-twenty foot Pollock goes for upwards of $75.
Mr. Braunshire, exasperated and spent, walked to a large mirror where he combed his hair.
"Modern c**p," he muttered one last time. ... (MUSTERVILLE SCRIBBLINS)A) What a g****m moron. Don’t criticize what you don’t understand, sir.
B) I fought in WWII. It’s a dirty shame this country is going to He**.
C) I’m going to poop on a canvas and sell it.
