Extraordinary behaviour

People are extraordinary. My stint in America provided myriad examples of this. 
When I was at the San Francisco MOMA, I overheard a conversation between two men. One was holding a phone out to the other; “Look at this”. “What is it?” “Awkward family photos”. Awkward family photos? The website that has stupid, albeit vaguely amusing, awkward family photos. The idea of someone finding it necessary to exhibit a silly website when surrounded by some of San Francisco’s best art was absurd. Desecration.
