After reading a relatively recent bio of Salvador Dali, I have to admit that he was more seriously bent than I had thought. Too bad he and Kanonenkoenig Krupp couldn't have gotten together and debated the aromatic qualities of human vs. horse excrement.

Still, I considered Dali to be an absolute hoot when he opened up the throttle on his ego and roared past. I especially enjoyed the grand statements he occasionally issued once he had reached old age... I often wondered whether he was being serious or just tweaking everyone (or a combination of the two).

After all these years, I still have a friendly feeling for Dali's limp watches and Magritte's locomotive choogling out of the fireplace.

LOL. Yeah he was something else. I suspect some of what he said was "tweaking." His draftmanship was amazing, as was his way of bringing together his interest in 20th century cosmology with religious subject matter.

Another one who got off on human fecal matter was James Joyce. I could gross you out with what he liked; read a bio of him and find the answer, unless you already know.
