I just wanted to chime in that I did dereference the link almost immediately and got a good laugh out of it. Another interesting example would be to refer to an image of some object, say a pipe http://www.library.upenn.edu/finearts/slide/286/28601045.htm-- Ceci n'est pas une pipe. Then we are getting somewhere-- or nowhere. Or if something more recent is preferred, Giselle Beiguelman recently worked on a project at http://www.desvirtual.com/nike/ -- Ceci n'est pas une nike. In any event, thanks for the link, your point was well made... Jeff Rafter
