Amusing allusions!




 

QK/OPERA

The CIA codename for the propaganda program in which they promoted anti-Communist art was QK/OPERA. Is imomus' 'Click Opera' an intentional pun?

Picture it: Sicily, 1928. Ignore Estelle Getty and fast forward seventy-seven years. Momus receives funds from Communist China to promote the Red meme.

I'm fabricating this connection, but it is amusing nonetheless.
