I have been thinking of organising an event called International René Magritte Day, to celebrate the work of the famous surrealist.
To launch the event, a "flock" of scaled up dirigibles, each one modelled on the famous bowler hatted figure, would simultaneously take to the air in an attempt to recreate
one of his iconic paintings (see link)

||A bit limiting . A 'Surreal Day' would be fun.
An elephant with insanely skinny legs would work as
a balloon too.
||Take up your arm
Sons and daughters
We will arise from the bunkers
By land, by sea, by dirigible
We'll leave our tracks untraceable now
||Wags, that's a fantastic poem. Who's it by?
"Ceci n'est pas gonflable"
||I must admit that I envisaged an idea rather smaller in scope: a pomme gonflable equipped with sufficient high-tech light-weight gubbins that it is able to float and remain in a position that would completely obscure the face of the "wearer" from the view of his or her co-conversationalist.
