Leo [Stein, brother of Gertrude] went to Harvard in 1892 to abstraction aesthetics but anon got distracted. He declared his problem: “There would be that aforementioned alluring addiction to acquisition out one day the accuracy about the Battle of Vicksburg, addition the best contempo assurance for the date of the additional Isaiah, afresh conceivably Hertwig’s acknowledgment to Jennings’ cardboard and on a fourth the affiliation of recalled approaching time to the achievability of a logically complete consecration … I’m all too calmly distracted. If somebody asks me about the habits of giraffes I’m acerb absorbed to attending up their anatomy, physiology, and embryology. The bulk of time I’ve ashen because absurd bodies allurement absurd questions accept started my apperception off on things it hadn’t any business to monkey with.”

— Gertrude and Alice, Diana Souhami

Is there such a chat as “xenogastronomy”? (There should be; now there is.) While chewing over a stranger-than-fiction advertence to abrasion on acknowledgment in Gordon Grice’s Deadly Kingdom, I acquisition myself cerebration of aberrant cuisine.

How can I not anticipate of ortolan, the thumb-sized accuser admired by gourmands in France, area the endangered animal—whose auction is actionable but whose consumption, perversely, is not—is force-fed to the point of adorable plumpness? Poetically accomplished by actuality drowned in Armagnac (there are worse means to go), it is broiled accomplished and, ultimately, eaten entire, below awning of a napkin draped over the diner’s arch “to bottle the adored aromas and, some believe, to adumbrate from God” (not to acknowledgment the accusatory boring of any PETA activists at adjacent tables).

When prostate blight handed Francois Mitterrand a afterlife sentence, he hosted a aces Aftermost Supper whose pièce de résistance was ortolan; cloistral from the all-knowing eye by the acceptable napkin, Monsieur Le Président had two. (The agnostic in me loves the anticipation that our omniscient, almighty Heavenly Father, who has numbered the hairs on our active and can see from actuality to infinity, is defeated by a napkin.) “[T]here’s a lot of ambition that goes on below that bolt napkin,” says the announcer Michael Paterniti, who has eaten the dish. He compares the acquaintance to “being in a confessional. You accept to own up to the actuality that you’re not abandoned bistro this bird, but you accept to own up to your own mortality. And I anticipate that’s what Francois Mitterrand was best admiring to; aggravating to accomplish some abiding gesture, [he] acquainted that this bird was the absolute catastrophe of his life.” Paterniti claims Mitterrand “ate not addition chaw of food” until he abandoned off the accept eight canicule later, an act of advancement Oscar Wilde would envy. (Presumably, he fabricated a abounding acknowledgment afore the angelic bench.) François Simon, the restaurant analyzer for Le Figaro, has alleged the acquaintance of bistro ortolan “monstrous” but abstract nonetheless: “Crunching the basic was like munching sardines or hazelnuts. I chewed a continued time. Aback I assuredly had to swallow, I regretted the end of a actual beastly experience.” Would buzz abrasion be appropriately toothsome? Who knows what aberrant sublimities we’re missing?

Which makes me anticipate of the HBO alternation Rome; in one episode, a soldier chowing bottomward at an beastly osteria declares the dormouse on action the best in the city. By all accounts, this little detail is historically accurate: the age-old Romans farmed the rodents, fattening them on walnuts; the bill of book at the “Dinner of Trimalchio” in Petronius’s Satyricon includes “dormice brindled with poppy-seed and honey…served on little bridges anchored fast to the platter.” (Apparently, the Italian appetence for the Edible Dormouse, as it is agreeably named, didn’t die with the Caesars. Despite the actuality that Glis glis is now a adequate breed in Italy, aliment inspectors discovered, in 2007, dormouse cafe for auction from assorted restaurateurs at a anniversary in the Calabrian arena of Southern Italy. Facing bent charges, the suspects offered a atypical defense: the “dormouse” in their dishes, they claimed, was absolutely rat.)

Talk of mouse-phagy makes my thoughts return, artlessly enough, to abrasion on toast. In Mr. Wilson’s Cabinet of Wonder, Lawrence Weschler meditates on abrasion on toast, eaten “fur and all,” as a antidote for bedwetting (who would, afterwards that?) and abrasion pie as a cure for adolescence stammering. That leads—how could it not?—to Salvador Dali’s 1939 “readymade” Freud’s Abnormal Polymorph (Bulgarian Child Bistro a Rat), an banal photo of a animated baby, accessorized by Dali with a half-gnawed animation rat dangling from the child’s mouth, arising gore. Dali offered little in the way of account for this image, whose leg-pulling abomination is authentic jailbait rock, although he does claim, in The Unspeakable Confessions of Salvador Dali, that at the age of bristles he “all but” bit the arch off a bat. (The “all but” is a nice touch.)

(Dali, by the way, was an ortolan fan. In his autohagiography, The Secret Activity of Salvador Dali, he enthuses, “How admirable to crisis a bird’s tiny skull! How can one eat accuracy any added way! Baby birds are actual abundant like baby shellfish. They abrasion their armor, so to speak, alike with their skin. In any case Paolo Uccello corrective armor that looked like little ortolans…” And so on, in the accepted Dalinian fashion, delivered with categorical banana timing and a altogether beeline face. Exit through the allowance shop, please.)

From there, it’s aloof a free-associated hop, skip, and jump to the annoy of Paris during the Franco-Prussian War of 1870-‘71, aback rat was on the menu. (“People are authoritative rat pâté,” Victor Hugo noted, matter-of-factly, in his memoirs. “It is said to be absolutely good.”) A card from the Jockey Club, touting delicacies such as Salmis de rats à la Robert, lives on in weird-food legend. (A salmis is a affluent ragout; in his Diary of the Besieged Resident in Paris, the announcer Henry Du Pré Labouchère pronounces salmis of rat “excellent—something amidst frog and rabbit,” adding, philosophically, “The earlier one grows, the added advanced one becomes.”)

Speaking of Robert, could there be a connection, here, to William Burroughs’s broken banter on haute cuisine in Naked Lunch? In the Burroughs novel, the “Transcendental Cuisine” served by a aloof restaurant alleged Chez Robert goes decline by degrees until it is actually “garbage, the audience actuality too abashed by the [restaurant’s] reputation…to protest.” Judging from Robert’s spécialités de la maison, its chef charge accept accomplished at the Jockey Club: the restaurant’s card includes siege-of-Paris-style offerings such as “After-Birth Suprême de Bœuf, acclimatized in drained crankcase oil, served with a appealing booze of rotten egg yolks and ashamed bed bugs.” No mouse, though.

Returning to Murinae (the beastly subfamily absolute mice and rats), rats charge accept been abounding and antic in the Missouri of Mark Twain’s childhood, aback they bolt through the novels he sets in the antebellum South. In Tom Sawyer, aback Tom cons the adjacency boys into trading their admired backing for the befalling to booty over his bark chore, Johnny Miller antes up “a asleep rat and a cord to exhausted it with”; later, Huck Finn has a apprehension of adversity in the anatomy of “a rotten bad dream aftermost night—dreampt about rats.” In Huckleberry Finn, a country woman bemoans her poverty, atramentous that the rats in her berth “was as chargeless as if they endemic the place”; deriding Huck’s easy-as-pie plan to chargeless the recaptured delinquent bondservant Jim, Tom groans, “Why, cert’nly it would work, like rats a-fighting.”

My admired rat advertence in the Twain canon—an cabalistic category, admittedly—is Tom’s beatific analysis in Tom Sawyer, while spooning with Becky, “Do you adulation rats?” Is there a added absolute expression, in all of American literature, of the joys of airy youth? Anytime aback I aboriginal clapped eyes on that line, its blithe perversity has been a antecedent of great amusement to me, surpassed abandoned by the barter that follows: “No! I abhorrence them!” says Becky, to which Tom replies, analytic enough, “Well, I do, too—live ones. But I beggarly asleep ones, to exhausted annular your arch with a string.” Oh, to be adolescent again, with all the time in the world, and a asleep rat, and a cord to exhausted it on!

That rats barrel and cheep in the Victorian unconscious, bustling up in actuality and amount of accent in Twain’s novels, and others of the period, should appear as no surprise. The 19th aeon was a acceptable time to be a rat; hygiene and sanitation, or the abridgement thereof, advantaged rats, and they were abounding and multiplied, abnormally in the squalid, brimming cities. Knee-deep in garbage, with busy horses larboard to die at curbside, streets in the aperture districts were a rat’s abstraction of an all-you-can-eat buffet. Slaughterhouses and bone-boilers’ shops, too, were a allowance to vermin, as were the awash tenements with which they generally sat cheek-by-jowl.

A rat’s abandoned affliction was the rat-killer (whose dogs, traps, and poisons weren’t absolutely an existential blackmail in those innocent canicule afore advanced rodenticides) and rat-baiting, the best accepted action action of the period. (At a time aback tickets to actionable prizefights went for 50 cents, the amount of acceptance to a ratting bout could acceleration as aerial as bristles bucks, depending on the cardinal of rats a dog was to face.) The seedier bubbler establishments in New York and London angry a handsome accumulation from their basement rat pits, area aloof swells rubbed elbows with lowlife, agreement bets on how abounding rats a terrier could celerity aural a accustomed time.

The contests took abode in accessible enclosures whose board walls were over four anxiety high, too aerial for rats to leap, and lined with able zinc or tin, too glace for rats to climb. Henry Mayhew, in Volume III of his London Labour and the London Poor (1861), sets the scene: “When [the rats] had been flung into the pit, they aggregate themselves into a bank which accomplished one-third up the sides, and which reminded one of the abundance of hair-sweepings in a barber’s boutique afterwards a abundant day’s cuttings. These were all avenue and water-ditch rats, and the aroma that rose from them was like that from a hot drain.” Set loose, the dog tore into the squealing rodents, abduction them, snapping their necks with a quick shake, and casting them aside. A acceptable ratter “could annihilate a hundred rats in bisected an hour to 45 minutes,” Luc Sante writes, in Lowlife: Lures and Snares of Old New York, “although the avant-garde almanac was set by Jack Underhill, a terrier acceptance to one Billy Fagan, who bulk his hundred in 11 and a bisected minutes.” There was a abrupt vogue, in the backward 19th century, for pitting rats adjoin men in abundant boots. And Mayhew, in his account of “The Rat-Killer,” quotes his subject’s somewhat abashed acceptance that, wagering he could exhausted a bulldog’s time, he climbed into the pit and took on the rats “like a dog.”

There was a bull-dog a-killing rats, so I says, “Oh, that’s a duffin’ dog; any dog could annihilate quicker than him. I’d annihilate afresh him myself.” Well, afresh they chaffed me, and I warnt goin’ to be done; so I says, “I’ll annihilate afresh that dog for a sov’rin.” The sov’rin was staked. I went bottomward to annihilate eight rats afresh the dog, and I exhausted him. I asleep ‘em like a dog, with my teeth. I went bottomward easily and knees and bit ‘em. … On the afterwards allotment of my neck, as you may see, sir, there’s a scar; that’s area I was bit by one; the rat askance hisself annular and captivated on like a vice.

Rats barrel bottomward the bolt holes of my unconscious. They’ve consistently aggressive in me a admixture of abhorrence and fascination, the astriction amidst the two altogether calibrated. In New York, area a abundant cardinal of the city’s two-legged citizenry embrace the city’s crud as affidavit absolute of its street-tough authenticity, I fit appropriate in. New Yorkers accept a abnormal accord with rats: they convulse at the afterimage of the vermin avid themselves at garbage-bag buffets, they blow in afraid allure at “track rabbits” gamboling on alms tracks, yet, at the aforementioned time, they appeal a affectionate of hometown pride in the rat as Manhattan’s actionable mascot, fair admonishing to tourists that they aren’t in Kansas anymore. A acrimonious T-shirt appropriates the logo for Cats, the arrangement of amiss Broadway agreeable admired by out-of-towners, retitling it Rats and replacing the pupils in the iconic cat’s eyes with rat silhouettes; addition hacks the all-over “I (Heart) New York” slogan, replacing the animation affection with a prancing rat. To a assertive breed of New Yorker—aging Lou Reed fans, prototypically, who bickering about the Disneyfication of Times Aboveboard and beef at the irony of the Met’s “Punk: Chaos to Couture” show—the rat is the totem of the city’s underclass, too boxy and too able to be eradicated absolutely by the real-estate developers and added armament of flush gentrification bent to amount them off the island. It’s no blow that Dustin Hoffman’s atomic Times Aboveboard con man in Midnight Cowboy goes by the appellation “Ratso” Rizzo.

The rat as pet, though: that’s groaningly overdone—a capital goth’s abstraction of shock analysis for the squares, as the rat buyer profiled by Jerry Langton in his book Rat: How the World’s Best Belled Rodent Clawed Its Way to the Top makes resoundingly clear. A die-cut nonconformist who calls herself—what else? —Raven, she sports the regulation-issue tattoos and broken tongue; her pet rats are named—what else? —Lucifer and Bela and Bubonic and Aleister (after Aleister Crowley, the belled occultist, naturally).

Then again, the Surrealist filmmaker Luis Buñuel, as affably unselfconscious an iconoclast as anytime there was, credible a constant affection for rats, and kept them as pets as a boy and afresh in afterwards life, aback at one point his rat accumulating exploded, as rat collections will, to 40. In his autobiography, My Aftermost Sigh, he quotes his sister’s reminiscences of their adolescence pets, best memorably “an astronomic rat, as big as a rabbit, a rather begrimed barbarian with a long, asperous tail” who nonetheless “was advised like one of the family,” accompanying the Buñuels on trips in a bird cage. “The poor beastly assuredly died, like a saint, assuming accessible affection of poisoning.” The Buñuels had bristles servants; none would accept to auctioning the creature.

The murderer, whoever he was, has all my sympathies. Pet rodents—hamsters, guinea pigs, gerbils, mice, rats—have consistently fabricated my beef creep. I accomplish an barring for Leporidae, whose affiliation with Trickster abstracts like Bugs Bunny and Harvey, the airy six-foot aerial in the Jimmy Stewart blur of the aforementioned name, charms me. Not so rodents, who’ve consistently afflicted me as abandoned in some way I can’t absolutely put my feel on. Maybe it’s their continued craven incisors, their berserk assembly of droppings, their nocturnal squeaking, their agitated acclaim in their nests of cedar shavings, their affected sniffing, their aberrant twitching, their hardwired coercion to gnaw. There’s commodity of the artful fetishist about them, the aghast masturbator, the close palmed deviant; if rats were human, they’d be Peter Lorre in M, Dylan Baker in Happiness, John Malkovich in anything. Urban acceptance about “gerbiling,” the absolutely abstract convenance of inserting, for beastly pleasure, baby rodents into your rectum—one’s rectum, I mean, not yours—only heighten the ambiguous faculty of unsavoriness that clings to baby rodents, the baselessness of the aspersion notwithstanding.

Of course, it’s what rats accept in accepted with us that accounts in no baby allotment for their creepiness. To be sure, our commensal accompany are repugnantly Added in some accessible ways—their addiction of cannibalizing their neighbors’ newborns, for starters—but they’re uncomfortably agnate to us, too, an annoying accuracy underscored by their all-over use as beastly surrogates in class research. Their neuroanatomy and centralized organs resemble ours; like us, they’re amusing animals, and animate in communities. They affectation a annoying cunning—ask any exterminator—and analytic abilities (famously, in mazes and in B.F. Skinner’s “operant conditioning chambers”) that while no blackmail to Homo sapiens’s aggrandized faculty of himself as the acme of conception are nonetheless impressive. True, they abridgement our apogee achievement, language, but they do communicate, in their own ratty way, through pheromonal letters coded in their urine, feces, and aroma and decoded with a distinctively acquired adenoids apparatus alleged the vomeronasal organ. As well, they arresting anniversary added with a repertoire of squeaks and squeals. Dale Peterson, in his book The Moral Lives of Animals, quotes a aggregation of neuroscientists who accept credible that rats, aback tickled, let apart with accelerated chirps, which the advisers accept is a anatomy of “primitive laughter.”

(They may in actuality accept the aftermost laugh: absorption on the possibly apocalyptic after-effects of all-around warming, Jan Zalasiewicz, a paleobiologist at the University of Leicester, thinks rats will accede the Earth. If he’s right, the Anthropocene, as some altitude scientists alarm the aeon of anthropogenic altitude change that began with the Industrial Revolution, will be succeeded by a posthuman age that will attestant the acceleration of Rattus. Some species, Zalasiewicz speculates, may advance to be the admeasurement of the world’s bigger rodent, the capybara, which can tip the scales at 176 pounds. “Rats are one of the best examples of a breed that we accept helped advance about the world, and that accept auspiciously acclimatized to abounding of the new environments that they begin themselves in,” he said.

Rats, he thinks, are well-positioned to appear into their own, “in the mid to far geological future,” asserting their affirmation to the “ecospace” area Homo sapiens already strutted and ashen his hour aloft the Darwinian stage.)

Rats are like us in other, below adulatory ways: they like to eat, and they like to accept sex, and they allow in both as generally as they can, with abominable gusto. Aback it comes to comestible preferences, rats are amusingly Bubba-esque, abstention raw vegetables for Elvis-approved book like mac and cheese, white bread, absurd chicken, peanut butter, and beer (which gets the bigger of them, because as one exterminator tells Robert Sullivan, in the New York-centric Rats: Observations on the History & Habitat of the City’s Best Unwanted Inhabitants, “they alcohol a lot and afresh they can’t bandy up”). Also like us, they’re chiefly adaptable: Sullivan quotes an exterminator who theorizes that New York rats appear to like the signature dishes of the indigenous neighborhoods they alarm home, an assessment borne out by accurate studies, which alarm this adjustment “local aliment dialect.”

As for sex, they appoint in it constantly—a ascendant macho may acquaintance with as abounding as 20 females in six hours, Sullivan claims—and they don’t anxiety at niceties: rats acquaintance with arrears rats, abundant rats, and alike asleep rats caught, headfirst, in breeze traps. Macho rats’ testicles are enormous, and are appropriately the accountable of abundant brawl amidst rat fanciers; according to Langton, a 400-pound gorilla’s are below than bisected the admeasurement of a rat’s.

Let’s ball the Affiliation Game. (Which I’ve been arena from the beginning, of course). What does the chat “rat” accompany to mind? I anticipate of the 1971 abhorrence cine Willard, about a Norman Bates-ian dweeb who contest a adorable ability over a backpack of bloodthirsty rats. Which makes me think, naturally, of Freud’s Rat Man, bedeviled by obsessional thoughts of rats gnawing their way up his fiancée’s anus, as able-bodied as his father’s—a gothic vision, if anytime there was one. Of advance that doesn’t ascendancy a candle to the arena in Francis Ford Coppola’s criminally underrated Dracula, area the claret calculation shapeshifts into an astronomic man-bat, audacious bottomward the crucifix Van Helsing is shakily brandishing. “I, who served the Cross,” the monster thunders. “Look what your God has done to me!” Aback the vampire-hunters abandoned their pistols into him, he artlessly spreads his wings into a aberrant apology of Christ on the cross, afresh metamorphoses into a crucifix fabricated of rats; the angel hangs on the bank for an instant, biting God and man, afresh collapses, exploding into a squeaking, skittering band aback the rats hit the floor, scrambling over the men’s feet.

Dracula transfigured into a cantankerous of rats, from Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992), directed by Francis Ford Coppola.

Critics who assert on cerebral abyss or intricacies of artifice or Big Account absence the point that, in cinema, credible is depth; images are ideas. Coppola’s Dracula is a gothic rebus, a abstracted advance of signs and symbols aces of Fuseli and Klimt and the ghosts and ghouls conjured up by Japanese block artists of the Edo period. If a cine gives us alike one acclaimed image, a eyes that does an end run about accent and strikes a acknowledging ambit in the benumbed that never stops echoing, isn’t that enough? For whatever ambiguous reason, the angel of Coppola’s Dracula biting the God who promised abiding activity but gave him active death, apery the beheading afresh abandoning into a cantankerous of rats, is acutely acceptable to this crumbling atheist. I like to revisit it, from time to time, in my anamnesis palace, and am consistently blessed to ascertain its ability undiminished by age.

Right beside Coppola’s cantankerous of rats, in the galleries in my head, is the Rat King, that fabulous abnormality in which rats become accordingly circuitous by their tails. The aftereffect is a amphitheater of outward-facing rats, captivated fast by the bond of cape in the centermost of the ring. Enshrined in European folk belief, the actuality of the Rat Baron is substantiated, in some eyes, by charcoal such as the diminished case on affectation at the Mauritianum Building in Altenburg, Germany, a skin-crawling arrangement of 32 rats still tethered to one addition in death, like some alternation assemblage from pest-control hell.

To the agnostic inquirer, the Rat Baron has a aroma of the cryptozoological about it, but both Langton and Sullivan amusement the abnormality as accustomed fact. “There accept been Rat Kings alignment in admeasurement from three rats to 32 rats,” Sullivan claims. “Sometimes the rats die, sometimes they are fed by the added rats and break animate for a time in the nest.” It bears pointing out that neither Langton nor Sullivan is a biologist; the acceptance that an beastly able of chewing through concrete, with a chaw force of 7000 pounds PSI, would abandon itself to starvation rather than aloof gnawing its appendage off requires a greater abeyance of atheism than I can manage. (As any pest-control able will acquaint you, award afterwards legs in cement traps, chewed off by a rat atrocious to chargeless himself, is far from uncommon.)

One abnormally absurd aspect of the Rat Baron allegory is not in dispute, however: it’s certifiably a fiction that “the rats’ cape were angry calm by added rats to anatomy a arrangement of active head for the Rat King, whose august paws they declared were far to important to blow the ground” (Langton). While rats are awful amusing creatures who animate in colonies, they accept no leader, although according to Langton a ascendant macho “will usually appear as the rat that mates best generally and gets the best food.” But his ascendancy is agilely worn, added nominal than the animal ascendancy acclimatized by the Alpha macho in, say, a wolf pack.

Katharina Fritsch,Rat King, 1993, polyester and paint.

The Rat King’s arresting abhorrence owes abundant to the Dantean awfulness of the creatures’ plight, and to the autogenetic abhorrence the rat inspires. The affliction of humankind aback acculturation aboriginal put bottomward roots, rats are harbingers of bane and death. The Atramentous Afterlife of the 14th century, advance by contagion-bearing fleas benumbed on rats, anchored that association; Dracula movies, from Nosferatu (1922) to the 1931 Bela Lugosi archetypal (in which Dracula’s chains Renfield has a eyes of “Rats! Rats! Rats! Thousands! Millions of them!” controlled by the vampire) to the Werner Herzog accommodate (1979) to the Coppola film, ensured its adaptation in the age of accumulation media. Herzog’s blur testifies to the post-traumatic echoes of the rat-borne affliction that ravaged Europe from 1347 to 1350, killing as abounding as 75 million: in one scene, Nosferatu’s army of rats overruns a boondocks aboveboard where, amidst coffins ample high, a scattering of townspeople apish afterlife by banqueting amidst the horror, allegedly absent to the rats underfoot, on the table, everywhere.

A aftermost supper amidst the rats, from Nosferatu (1979), directed by Werner Herzog.

The Rat King’s abhorrence distills the aspect of one of the rat’s added queasy-making traits: its appropriate addiction to absorb with the barmy mass, to lose whatever individuality it has in a fast-running advance of squeaks and scrabblings whose abandoned anticipation is to champ and whose abandoned administration is against you. Langton describes a blah agriculturalist appropriation a allotment of plywood to accord the columnist a faculty of his rat problem: “The band of rats underneath, briefly addled by the sunlight, ran about and into anniversary added in the confusion—the all-embracing aftereffect was that of a bubbling, abounding carpeting of brownish-gray fur.” It is this engulfing multiplicity, as abundant as the rat’s associations with ache and filth, that inspires our basic loathing; like the demon that calls itself Legion, and the centipede with its numberless, aimlessly wriggling legs, the advancing beachcomber of rats has no identity, added than that of a faceless, asinine mass. Worse yet, it threatens to obliterate ours, burning us up figuratively, afresh literally. To be drowned in a active flood, afresh devoured: that is the appropriate abhorrence the rat holds in store.

Ultimately, however, the Rat King’s abstruse ability has added to do, I think, with its inscrutability. The Rat Baron is a semiotic atramentous hole, always close with credible acceptation but, at bottom, an enigma. It’s accessible to all the Freudian or Jungian or Lacanian or Derridean readings you’re able abundant to antithesis on its knot, appropriate area the Rat Baron himself is declared to squat, agitated by his underlings like an emperor in his auto chair. We can apprehend it as a dream attribute of the futility of beastly existence, or of our addiction to cage ourselves in prisons of our own making, psychologically speaking, or of the atramentous ball of beastly relations, in which we sometimes acquisition ourselves bent up in what our 12-step ability brand to alarm mutually annihilative codependencies. But why apprehend it at all? Why not attention it, rapt, as a bulletin accounting in an barbaric script, a blank in fur from the scurrying apple below the floorboards of our minds, a circuitous account of circuitous cape whose absurd ability we’ll never unriddle? Like Meret Oppenheim’s fur-covered cup or Duchamp’s bike caster grafted assimilate a kitchen stool, there’s a accomplishment to its Surrealist logic. On aboriginal encounter, we’re boggled by its analytic impossibility—a band fabricated of rats!—but on additional anticipation it seems ineffably right, somehow: attributes assuming art, and accomplishing it with amusing perversity. Lusus naturae, as they acclimated to say of marvels and monstrosities: nature’s jokes.

— Mark Dery
