Privy Counsel Pin-Up: Salvador Dalí

It keeps happening, we don't know how. No matter how much one resists - one may, for instance, pour neat gin down one's throat and play vulgar music at a loud volume - one somehow ends up in the space-time continuum labelled "Monday morning". In order not to give in to despair completely, we're posting a picture of Salvador Dalí in a bath-tub. After all, what's not to love about Salvador Dalí? Well, quite.

"There are some days when I think I'm going to die from an overdose of satisfaction."
Dalí was a surrealist painter from Catalonia who loved sticking the metaphorical finger up at the world in general. He has many amusing quotes attributed to him. For instance, we learn from our chief source of information, Wikipedia, that "[Dalí] was [...] known to avoid paying tabs at restaurants by drawing on the checks he wrote. His theory was the restaurant would never want to cash such a valuable piece of art, and he was usually correct".

In order to get through the day, somehow, let us try to adopt some Dalí-esque thinking.
"Every morning upon awakening, I experience a supreme pleasure: that of being Salvador Dalí, and I ask myself, wonderstruck, what prodigious thing will he do today, this Salvador Dalí."
