    So will Bernard Reis buy all the toast and sell it at a reduced price to associates? 

  3. Daneel says:

    Nice! I’ll pass on the The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living soup, though.

    The Malevich “white on white bread” is a ripoff, however.

    Meh, my three year old could make that toast.

    This seems like the sort of thing that you would not want to try to get away with in a jurisdiction that takes ‘moral rights’ seriously as an element of copyright…

    Warning: the Lucifer Toast is Marmite and horseradish…

  8. Certainly more appetizing than the Jackson Pollock. somebody left on the floor.

    I got the Joseph Kossuth toast.

    It was piping hot, fresh from the photocopier.

    For healthier fare, try the Magritte apple, which the cafeteria server holds out to you at arm’s length, thereby obscuring their own face.

    Oh, and you might want to skip the Marcel Duchamp soda fountain.

    Looks like they serve it on Edith Heath designed service ware as well.  I recently had the chance to visit their new space in the mission; it’s sweet.

    They’ve already served Finnish school lunches, so why not?

      I used to eat lunch at the Scandinavia Deli in on Market Street in SF occasionally. It was, remarkably, largely filled with Scandinavian diners. Inevitably, the waitress would walk up to a table of firefighters and say, “Are you finished?” And they’d all reply loudly in unison, “No, we’re Swedish!” And laugh hysterically. Every day.

    Is Battenburg Cake infant Mondriaan Cake?

    Is that archival pain de mie?

    They also serve the best latte in SF, pulled from a full manual espresso machine. It’s art in itself.

    SFMOMA will be closing from June 3 through 2016 for remodeling and construction, so get your toast soon if you want it.

    If this had been available last year, that Yellowist guy could have made his big dumb statement by writing on his toast, thereby dodging prison.

    I can already envision a cute little card, sitting on the counter, with the handwritten sales pitch: “Don’t like abstract expressionism?  Then eat it.”

    OMG the influence of The Toast Marketing Board is REAL!!!

    It’s only natural that their influence would seep out of a book where real-world-book-world travel is possible.

    I ordered the Sol LeWitt sandwich, but I just got a recipe.

    That’s BS, I thought it was cheese.
