Da-Taoism by CuttingRoom Da-Taoism by CuttingRoom
Today we present a collaborative project I did with Sebastien Millon, one of the coolest, funniest, and most talented guys youíre likely to run into on the interwebs. To see more of his work, check out his deviantArt page or befriend him on facebook.

This is probably the weirdest damn strip weíve ever released. If you get it, mad props to you. If you donít get it, me explaining it probably wonít make it funny, but itís worth a shot.

The yin yang is a symbol of Taoism (pronounced with a D), and Marcel Duchamp painted a mustache on the Mona Lisa as part of an art movement called Dadaism. So, if you suffuse one in the other, you get Da-Taoism. And Marcel Duchamp must be the father of such things, so heís the Da-da of Da-Taoism, which is also a reference to a joke made by C.J. Craig on The West Wingóthe finest art TV has ever known.

So why is he holding a sign in the third panel that says in French ďI am not Marcel DuchampĒ? Well, thatís a reference to another Dadaist, Renť Magritte, who painted an image of a pipe with the caption ďThis is not a pipe.Ē Why? Because itís not a pipe, itís a painting of one. And thatís not Marcel Duchamp, itís an image of him.

Yeah. If thatís too esoteric for you, the coming weeks will see public bathroom jokes, tranny super heroes, and zombie porn. Seriously.

Tranny super heroes? In the words of Shia Labeouf; " NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO" lol . Have you guys ever read a graphic novel called " The Pro" ? It's like the last sentence you wrote, made into a comic book.
