At an art exhibition, a couple was viewing a painting of three very naked
and very black men sitting on a park bench. What was unusual was that the
men on the ends of the bench had black penises, but the man in the middle
had a very pink penis.
While the couple was scratching their heads trying to figure this out, the
artist walked by and noticed the couple's confusion. "Can I help you with
this painting?" he asked.
"Well, yes" said the gentleman. We were curious about this picture of the
black men on the bench. Why is it that the man in the middle has a pink
"Oh" said the artist. "I'm afraid you've misunderstood the painting. The
three men are not Africans, they're coal miners, and the fellow in the
middle went home for lunch."
