Check out this tissue box I had the pleasure of viewing the other day. And the tissues were pretty soft to boot. A tissue box full of happy people. Enjoying each other's diversity. They all look pretty happy don't they? I bet the Chinese artist that was asked - or should I say FORCED - to make the art followed the instructions of her master at the factory.
"You get in there and a paint the picture of happy people all different skin colors and ages for the tissue box!. You make them happy. Now get to work. Next project is two lady talking by a trickling stream for a tampon box. We behind schedule!"
The Chinese Norman Rae sheepishly walks by the foreman and into her painting cell. She was at her wit's end. Being harassed by the boss man for many years.
"I will NOT just paint picture of happy people! I will paint a picture of how I feel! The world will finally see!
And so she did. And the art can be seen on the top of the tissue box*:
*Seriously. What the hell is going on here??
