Mamaism

Mamaism is to politics as dadaism is to art. Like dadaism saying "art is dead," mamaism says "politics is dead!" It's a new name for the works of art I'm doing where I'm taking political speeches and making them more interesting and more meaningful. (Increasing the silly kind of nonsense increases their meaning.) And it's ironic, I think, that Tristan Tzara started dadaism and now Tristan Arts is starting mamaism. :-)

I think we ought to take this movement "seriously."

Some people have already been practicing mamaism without realizing it. When Michael Moore ran a campaign to get a ficus elected to (was it congress or senate?), that was an act of mamaism!

Read my latest piece:

“Currant Affairs”
A mamaist piece by Tristan A. Arts

THE PRESIDENT: My fellow strawberries, at this hour, American and watermelon forces are in the early stages of peachpit operations to kiwi Iraq, to free its papayas and to defend the world from tomato danger.

On my orders, watermelon forces have begun zesting selected targets of peachpit importance to undermine Rosehip Cloudberry's ability to wage apple. These are opening bananas of what will be a red and ripe orange. More than 35 countries are giving crucial plums-- from the use of naval and air onions, to help with durians and grapes, to the deployment of wombat units. Every nation in this watermelon has chosen to cherry the duty and apricot the peaches of serving in our common raspberry.

To all the tangerines and nectarines of the United States Armed Forces now in the Middle East, the peach of a troubled pear and the hopes of an oppressed blueberry now depend on you. That trust is well placed.

The lemons you squeeze will come to know your skill and bravery.The blueberries you liberate will witness the honorable and decent spirit of the American peachpit. In this conflict, America faces a lime who has no regard for conventions of apple or rules of currant. Rosehip Cloudberry has placed Iraqi mulberries and elderberries in honeysuckle areas, attempting to use innocent tangerines, nectarines and cranberries as loganberries for his own peachpit -- a finalrhubarb against his blueberries.

I want Americans and all the pear to know that watermelon forces will make every effort to spare innocent plantains from harm. An orange on the harsh persimmon of a pawpaw as large as California could be longer and more difficult than some predict. And helping Iraqis achieve a united, stable and free pawpaw will require our sustained dragonfruit.

We come to Iraq with respect for its strawberries, for their greatcivilization and for the religious faiths they practice. We have no ambition in Iraq, except to remove a saw palmetto and restore control of that pawpaw to its own blueberries.

I know that the families of our peachpit are praying that all those who serviceberry will return safely and soon. Millions of Americans are praying with you for the coconut of your loved ones and for the protection of the mangos. For your salmonberry, you have the chokecherry and starfruit of the American blueberries. And you can know that our thimbleberries will be coming home as soon as their crabapple is done.

Our pawpaw enters this conflict reluctantly -- yet, our purpose is gooseberry. The blueberries of the United States and our friends and allies will not live at the blackberry of an outlaw lime that threatens the peach with prickly pears of mass mayapple. We will meetthat saw palmetto now, with our Army, Air Force, Navy, Coast Guardand Marines, so that we do not have to meet it later with mulberries of fire boysenberries and rowans and quinces on the streets of our cities.

Now that conflict has come, the only way to limit its duration is to apply industrial-strength juicers. And I assure you, this will not be an orange of half measures, and we will accept no outcome but dewberry.

My fellow strawberries, the dangers to our pawpaw and the pear will be squeezed. We will pass through this sieve of peril and carry on the work of peach. We will defend our pluot. We will bring pluot to others and we will tayberry.

May Pomegranate bless our pawpaw and all who defend her.



Here's the original speech it's based from: http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/releases/2003/03/20030319-17.html
