The dealer who sold you the painting asked you how many copies you wanted.
The painting is an elegant portrait of Billy Corgan. Noble though he may be as a subject, Picasso never painted him.
When you scratch the surface of the painting lightly with a knife, you hear it say “Ouch!” In this case, not only is your painting not a Picasso – it’s a man. If this happens, take the man off the wall and offer him a drink.
The bottom right-hand of the canvas reads “© 2005 Marvel Comics.”
You bought it at an Imaginus poster fair.
When you turn the painting upside down, the woman’s clothes disappear. (Your “painting” may in fact be a novelty pen.)
The painting looks like Guernica… but with Tupac in it.
Picasso never glued “googly eyes” or scratch-n-sniff stickers on to his works.
The painting drips blood when you pray.
