I Really Want to Straighten the Square
This is one of Patrick Smith's brilliant Mental Disorder series. You can probably see why this one resonates with me.

I personally feel that the images are sympathetic and witty, and have provided a great deal of value just by providing a starting point for that debate. And isn't that one of the purposes of (modern) art?
