We are (still) waiting for Godot to come

September 7, 2010 in Dada, Literature, Quotes by snark

“But that is not the question. Why are we here, that is the question. And we are blessed in this, that we happen to know the answer. Yes, in this immense confusion one thing alone is clear. We are waiting for Godot to come.”

How to cook a Jubjub

May 15, 2010 in Dada by snark

“You boil it in sawdust: you salt it in glue:
You condense it with locusts and tape:
Still keeping one principal object in view–
To preserve its symmetrical shape.”
