      At the National Art Gallery in Dublin , a husband and wife were staring at
      a portrait that had them completely confused.

      The painting depicted 3 black men totally naked, sitting on a bench.
      Two of the figures had black penises, but the one in the middle had a pink
      penis.

      The curator of the gallery went on for over half an hour explaining how it depicted the sexual
      emasculation of African Americans 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 Irishman 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 couple.

      'Because I am the artist who painted the picture,' he replied. 'In fact,
      there are no African Americans depicted at all. They're just three Irish
      coal miners. The guy in the middle went home for lunch!!!!!
