Home for Lunch
An exquisite painting, entitled “Home for Lunch”, was on display in a northeast Pennsylvania art gallery. It depicted three very naked and very black men, sitting on a park bench. What was unusual was that the men on both ends of the bench had black penises, but the man in the middle had a very pink penis.
Two women were standing there, staring at the painting, scratching their heads, and trying to figure the painting out. The artist walked by and noticed the women’s confusion. “Can I help you with this painting?” he asked.
“Well, yes” said the one woman. “We were curious about the picture of the black men on the bench. Why does the man in the middle have a pink penis?”
“Oh,” said the artist, “I’m afraid you’ve misinterpreted the painting. The three men are not African-Americans. They’re Pennsylvania coal miners, and the fellow in the middle went “Home for Lunch.”
