Hilarious Painting

I saw this hanging in the lobby of JR's Last Laugh Comedy Club and have never laughed so hard at a painting in my life. Tell me this isn't the best caption to a painting you have ever seen.

Ed Miracle's painting depicts Christopher Columbus' ships about to go over the edge of the world, meaning the world really is flat. The tiny row boat (with a motor) is going up stream trying to tell them but the huge ships sail ahead to their impending doom. Really brilliant work.

Now you know the first image that comes to mind when I do a new joke that my friends say isn't funny (and it doesn't get a decent laugh). That big ship going over the edge is yet another one of my jokes never to heard again.
