Vincent Van Gogh Self-Portrait with Bandaged Ear, Easel, and Japanese print,
January 1889 (F527) Oil on Canvas 60x49 cm Courtauld Institute Galleries, London
Van Gogh cut off his ear
and gave it to a prostitute,
who flung it away in disgust.
whores don't want ears.
They want money.
I guess that's why you were such a great painter:
you didn't understand much else.
