Pneumatic Institute: “Rules of the Rich” (from In the Time of Dearth, published 1795)
Abolish gravy, soups and second courses.
Buy no starch when wheat is dear.

A mouth opera in the orificial Now-time of laughter.

“It is time to abandon the world of the civilized and its light. It is too late to want to be reasonable and learned, which has led to a life without attractions… We must refuse boredom and live only on that which fascinates.” (Bataille – Acephale, June, 1936)
