no teasing, no lies, no fun

Nobody wants to be fooled. Very often when people look at certain contemporary art says “I don’t want to be fooled”. But why does nobody want to be fooled? Be fooled is also part of being put into question. And besides, what’s this epidemy of seriousness? I promise before Almighty God that the evidence which I shall give shall be the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. Captain Hook said: “Lie? Me? Never. The truth is far too much fun.” And I think he was right! Yet nobody imagines truth as a funny matter. And by the way, it seems that funny matters are useless… A curious short circuit in my opinion.
