“What’s that? A tin of tomatoes?”
“Of course not, well not just a tin of tomatoes. It is a work of art. A photo showing my artistic talents.”
“A tin of tomatoes from my kitchen. You mean when I put them in the spaghetti sauce I am actually eating a work of art. Taste like tomatoes to me.”
“No you just do not understand. There was an American guy who painted a picture of a tin of Campbells soup and he became famous throughout the world. Now it is my turn. My tin of tomatoes will be my trade mark.”
“But it is not a painting, a photo and they have thousands of those tins in the local supermarket.”
“That is not the point. My tin is unique, look, I even did it in an enhanced version.”
“Nothing special in that. Looks the same to me but without colour. Are the tomatoes also in black and white when the tin is opened.?
“Of course not, it is just my artistic monochrome colouring feature.”
“Did that American guy do that as well?
“Definitely not, that was my idea. True artists do not copy, we only produce originals.”
“But the idea was not original and all you did was use your photo app on the computer. Instead of spending half the morning on playing with photos of a can of tomatoes, you should spend the time opening the can and cooking lunch. And don’t forget to put the spices in the sauce, just in the colour they grow with.”
