Hey . . . . Hey you,
listen, I need a little help.
Iíve got to get out of here.
This place isnít for me.
I mean I didnít choose to be here.
I was working in a respectable clothing store and this
artist guy came in and KIDNAPPED me.
Thatís right, I didnít have a thing to say about it.
He just took me out of the store, put these . . . THINGS
on me, and stuck me in the window.
How do you think I feel about it????
Iíll tell you how I feel.
I feel humiliated. I feel like some kind of clown or something.
Listen, maybe you could just talk with the people who run
this gallery. Itís
not a big deal; just explain to themóIím not art . .
. IíM A MANNEQUIN! Theyíll
understand; surely they care about their reputation.
I mean art is pretty.
Art is something you can buy and put on your kitchen wall
to make the place feel more homey. Iím not art; just look at me.
ANYONE could do THIS.
Hey, Iíve got better things to do.
I could be selling clothes; maybe a hat or some shoes.
This is EMBARRASSING.
There must be something you can do.
Oh, I know, call the mayorís office.
Yeah, call them and tell them this display is obscene;
that will work. They
help out with situations like this.
Oh, I look like an idiot!
This is a real nightmare.
Why canít this guy just paint some flowers or
something? If he had any talent maybe he would carve a sculpture in
marble, you know, like some cute guy throwing a discus or
what they have in museums.
I donít think I can take this much longer.
Please help me.
OK, hereís another idea:
you could carry a petition around to all the local
business owners. This
kind of stuff probably hurts their business.
I bet theyíll do something. SOMEone has to do
probably clear to everyone except this weirdo artist that Iím not
art. I mean, just
look, Iím talking to you.
Iím talking to you in a cartoon bubble! Art is quiet. Art
