SCRIPT

At an art museum


A man is looking at a blank canvas.
Nothing is drawn on the canvas.
So he asks the curator about the painting.

M:   What does this represent?
C:   It's a cow eating grass.
M:  But where's the grass?
C:   The cow has eaten all the grass.
M:  Oh I see, but I don't see the cow.
    Where is it?
C:     It ate all the grass, so it's gone.
