Mom
This was the right place to bring him. Such deep thought in his eyes. I don’t want to interrupt, but… I hope he recognizes the paint splatter as a conveyance of adolescent rage…

Teenager
What total shit. Why did I let her drag me to this idiotic place? Art my ass. At least I’ll tell Gina about this. She’ll think it’s cool. Maybe she’ll finally say yes…

Other Guy
I’m not gonna lie, this looks like two giant boobs. Anyone else notice this? That kid’s looking intense. His mom too. Maybe it’s just me. Wait, is that a penis in the background?

  1. It must be good art. The image is completely subjective. 😉

  6. Ugh. As a mom, I’m terrified of the coming teen years. Just terrified.

    Nicely done.

    Perfect. I’m not very good at interpreting art myself, I’d totally be on the side of the son … I like how he thinks it may score him some point, though.
