Why surrealism is no longer all that interesting…

1.
A rich and stupid man steals a whole kingdom and no one stops him. Some judges say that It wouldn’t be polite to do so.

2.
In another kingdom there’s a man with a long beard who knows all the words of God. He has some soldiers who are not soldiers, and they fly some stolen planes into buildings in the first kingdom and a lot of people die. 

As a result, the robber king gets to be legitimate while reading about a goat and he sends a lot of soldiers who are soldiers off to the caves to kill the bearded man, but it never happens.  More people die.

3.
Another man in the first kingdom mails a disease and some more people die. Everyone thinks about that beard all the time.

4.
The robber king says that there’s a third king who has a lot of those same diseases hidden somewhere waiting to be mailed.  He sends a lot more soldiers off to kill the third king and steal that kingdom too.

No one finds the diseases but it’s ok, and a lot more people die.

5.
The robber king’s grand vizier shoots his friend in the face and the friend apologizes for the trouble he’s caused.  At least no one died this time!

6.
Meanwhile, the earth is melting and no one’s got any money to cool it down with.  Some people die.  A lot of people die.
