"An Artist Walks Into A" by Susannah Hewlett
This is a stand up comedy routine. Without the jokes.

With political content and less than humorous punchlines the audience are left with uncomfortable truths as facts are delivered as jokes......canned laughter adding to the discomfort.

This routine is re-written specifically for each event it appears in.

At the opening night of The Horticultural Society of New York's exhibition 'Implant' at UBS Gallery, New York in 2008, the jokes related specifically to the less celebrated facts of the horticulture industry......

Q: What do you call a cut flower handler with nausea, dizziness, vomiting and diarrhoea?................

A: A cut flower handler with pesticide exposure.
