“Notes from the International Bulletin of Surrealism,” by Chris Bullard

Surreal Floral Sketch

M. Duchamp informs us that he has retired from painting to play chess. His first move is P-K4.

R. Magritte reports that he is selling a collection of several thousand images that he has appropriated. Please contact him for current prices.

We recently received a note from M. Ernst informing us that he is now appearing as a winged dragon in a painting by his wife, Dorothea. He says that she caught the cutest expression on his face.

The Annual Membership Fee for the next seven months is due as of the vernal equinox. These members are currently in arrears: Y. Tanguy, T. Tzara, A. Wyeth.

Utne Reader has re-published our recent article “Open the Prisons, Disband the Army!” under the title “Improve Your Mind.”

The Editors wish to thank S. Dali for his recent Christmas card which is completely blank except for S. Dali’s signature. The card is expected to fetch upwards of $10,000 at auction.

A. Breton, who is a filthy Trotskyite, recently took a trip to the Gaspé Peninsula with his wife, Elisa. She tells us that every day they took fishing tackle and went out in a small boat and dreamed a fish. Several were records for that region.

Rebel! Resist! Instigate! And please watch out when you drive to work for small children on their way to school in the dark.

Best Wishes, the Editors.
