    Good Taste, Common Sense and the Revolver

    The truth is that art judges us.

    Art judges our taste.

    Art judges our sense of humour.

    Art judges our common sense.

    Art even judges our morals.

    So whenever I see a work of art, I reach for my revolver, and defend myself.

    Also -- there are some pretty objective things that we factor into our assessments of art, especially as a collective.

    (I haven't really vetted this list for direct relevance, but this stuff came to mind)
