image for Art Historians Discover Picasso's Strange Paintings Were Of Arkansas Family
Cletis was happy that them thar family pixures was found

Art Historians with the New York Museum of Modern Art have discovered that the strange, almost alien looking paintings of the late Pablo Picasso were not any sort of impressionism or abstract or of any other style. They were, in fact, portraits of a family that the artist met while traveling in Arkansas.

Photographs of the family members have been discovered in the papers of the late painter. They show people with four eyeballs on one side of the head, arms coming from their legs, and other deformities generally to be seen in his paintings.

"For the first time," said PhD Wyler Jennings, "I know what a breasticle really is and where the term really came from."

News sent shock through the art world and spurned a quick devaluation of all works of Picasso. "If he was just painting a bunch of inbred Arkansas hillbillies, why who wants that on their wall? Give me something a little more abstract," said Gloria Tyson of The Woodlands Art Gallery. "These incestuous sister fucker pictures can go back to the hills and hollers where they belong."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
