The Plastic Brain

Magritte’s original truly wasn’t a pipe. It was a painting of a pipe.

But this actually is a tie.

Does that mean that this tie is dumb? If you interpret Ceci n’est pas une pipe as I did in one of my first posts, the answer would be yes.


However, since the tie is labelled as dadaist, the counter-factual statement does its job of poking its tongue out to logic, and, especially in the form of a tie, to the establishment in general.

Am I reading too much into this? Maybe.

Would I wear the tie? Definitely.
