“The Hazards of Art” / Memorable Fancies #1147

     My friend showed me through the bazaar, helped me with a language I couldn’t even pronounce. Turning a corner, we came across an artist displaying caricatures of The Leader. “This would be a cute gift to take home,” I said, moving toward the booth.

     “No!” whispered my friend, tugging urgently at my sleeve. “It’s a setup. Anyone associated with such a drawing will be arrested, questioned, probably tortured. Everyone knows this but tourists like you.”

     “But wouldn’t the artists…?”

     “Yes, of course. There are new artists every day. Yesterday’s – well, we don’t ask.”
