      Dalí's printed protest against the decision of the Committee of the World's Fair, forbidding him to place outside of the building a replica of the Venus of Boticelli whose head had been replaced by that of a fish. A brilliant and biting take on the Declaration of Independence ("all men are equal in their madness.").
