The Critic

“That is just plain ugly.”

“Can’t you see the lines? It’s amazing. Simplicity at its best.”

“You’re kidding aren’t you? That is just crap. A kid could do better than this. Just because this is in a gallery of masterpieces doesn’t mean it all has to be good. I wonder who’s in charge of this gallery, because this is just crap, and doesn’t deserve to be alongside the greats. I should speak to the owner, and see if he knows anything about art.”

“You two must be from out of town. Yes, this is not very good art. But this was painted by the owner’s son, who died from leukaemia at just three years of age. And to the owner, this one drawing is worth more to him than all the other pieces in this gallery.”
