At the National Art Gallery , in Dublin Ireland , a Canadian couple were staring at a portrait that had them completely confused. The painting depicted three black men, totally naked, sitting on a park bench . Two of the figures had black penises but the one in the middle, had a pink penis. The curator of the gallery realized that they were having trouble interpreting the painting and offered his assessment.

He went on for over half an hour explaining how it depicted the sexual emasculation of the black man in a predominately white, patriarchal society.

“In fact,” he pointed out, “some serious critics believe that the pink penis also reflects the cultural and sociological oppression experienced by gay men in contemporary society.”


After the curator left, an Irish man approached the couple and said, “Would you like to know what the painting is really about?”

“Now why would you claim to be more of an expert than the curator of the gallery?” asked the husband.

“Because I’m the guy who painted it.” he replied.

”In fact, there are no black men depicted at all. They’re just three Irish coal miners. The guy in the middle went home for lunch.

That reminds me of the fellow who complained that his wife was having trouble hearing him. The husband called a hearing specialist and got an appointment to be evaluated, in two weeks. The doctor instructed him to conduct an experiment and to bring the results with them to the appointment so the doctor can better help them. The doctor told him to ask his wife a question, in his normal loudness, at 40 feet. If his wife does not respond, then he’s to move closer by ten feet and repeat the question. Then ask the same question at 30ft, 20ft, 10ft and finally standing next to his wife. So he asked, “What’s for dinner. Honey?” and repeated the same question as he moved closer, each time his wife did not respond. When he got right next to her and asked, “What’s for dinner, Honey?” His wife replied, “For the FIFTH time, chicken!”
