“Putting Them On” / Memorable Fancies #3322

[“Finally, the idea of inventing something insincere crossed my mind and I set to work straight away.” – Marcel Broodthaers]

What would an insincere invention be? One with a ‘press here’ button that does nothing?

That ‘press here’ thing was version one of my invention; only a start, a poor attempt. No one thought it very clever. “Poo,” they said, “Poo.”

But then I built version two, a success. People got the joke, laughed insincerely at its pretensions, secretly admired its forthright admission of fakery, of putting them on.

So now I’m running for Congress.
