Pisces & Cycle


This is a photo of me from my circus days. I showed it to an Italian, philosopher friend recently. He told me that the source of the t-shirt quote was a German feminist group and that they also had bars called Fish Meets Bicycle. My thinking, at the time, was that it was a double joke because I had done a big painting about a bicycle and am a Pisces (the fish has already met the bicycle). That paired with the huge silvery eyelashes make it one of my favorite pictures of myself.

There's also the phrase "Man needs God like a fish needs a bicycle," which I think has something to do with Robert Anton Wilson.
I have no idea which phrase came first but my money is on the feminists.
