Warhol

Andy Warhol was a great artist. Did I say great? I meant con. After all, he did say "Art is what you can get away with." And he sure got away with a lot! I mean, stacking those Brillo boxes! I'm sure Michaelangelo would have thought of that if they had had scouring pads back in sixteenth century Florence. And Leonardo da Vinci was going to make thirty exact copies of Mona Lisa, in different colors of course. But he just never got around to it. The knuckle head was always getting distracted thinking up wacky ideas like the helicoptor. And really, why did he waste so much time painting The Last Supper? Couldn't he have got his point across just as well with, I don't know, a painting of a soup can? Of course, our buddy Andy knew a little bit about wasting time. Not that I'm criticizing him for hanging out at Studio 54 so much. Can you blame him? I'm sure that's where Vincent van Gogh would have partied if he had the chance. Maybe he never heard about it. Okay, okay, I know I'm being too cynical. And I know I don't know much about art. I mean, how much can learn about something in fifteen minutes?
