I recall some years ago on the now defunct breakfast TV show on Channel 4 They were commenting on an "Art" work that consisted of a pile of cardboard boxes painted pink and what a load of rubbish it was. They reproduced it in the studio and asked a so called "Art" critic to comment. He said it wasn't ART unless he and other critics said so.
They live in a surreal world and actualy beleive in it. They also beleive that most of us are fools (Rightly so in many cases seems). In some respects they are artists, "Con Artists" and they do very nicely out of it too.
