Exquisite Corpse

corpse one-hundred thirty-six | the horror: social media stalker

So, I was doing a little social media perusing/snooping/stalking and found this corpse by a follower of a follower or friend of a friend or however/whatever it is we call/link to eachother.corpse social

corpse one-hundred thirty-five: this is on the menu/placemat?

Another placemat drawing. Corpse 135

corpse one-hundred thirty-four: what’s on the menu/placemat?

While waiting for food at a restaurant. Not quite R. Crumb’s Waiting for Food: Restaurant Placemat Drawings, but similar. Corpses drawn on menus that double for placemats at a restaurant. I am happy to see the return of paper placemats, especially on brown craft paper, at restaurants where you can also get a good cocktail. May or may not (not sure I need the may not) have been inspired by the calamari. corpse 134

And sometimes you miss. Not sure if this was a lack of understanding or if the connections were simply ignored. It is chaotic, but I like what’s happening. I suppose this is part of the fun or excitement of doing these things.
