Minutes of the Congress of Associationists

Natura Marta by Giorgio Morandi (1958)

The centennial meeting began with a digression from The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman. Wipes in movies belong on  windshields. L. Wittgenstein's proposition #1 from his Tractatus,The world is that which is the case. Cheers from audience bank. Chair uses his gavel to call the meeting to order. Godard appropriated the title of his 1969 film from Rousseau 's Emile or the Joy of learning--Le  Gai Savoir. "Object Relations" is not the title of the famous nude by Corbet. Shuddup! A Clear and Present Danger is not the movie at the Angelika. It's the decision in Schenck v. U.S. Caden Cotard is dying of "life." The actor who played him died because he killed himself. The Objectivists won the ping pong match. Ayn Rand shrugged. OxBridge debating society: "Do Eating and Talking Fulfill the Need to Masticate?"
