Q: What is the definition of surrealism?

A: A fish.

Dreams are notoriously poorly drafted narratives, which is hardly surprising since they can abandon internal logic at any point. But I've had some strange ideas recently which may merit re-use at some time:

the Architectural Cheese Society what? well, yes, exactly

the Welsh Handshake Association dedicated to the study and practice of traditional and new techniques of hand-shaking

and strangest of all, the Sleeping Saints, a sect whose members say goodbye to their families and then lie face down on their bed, arms outstretched, until they die of starvation. Odd.
