Three Black Men At the National Art Gallery in Dublin,

A husband and wife were staring at a portrait that
had them completely confused.
The painting depicted three black men totally naked,
sitting on a bench.
Two of the figures had black penises, but the one in the
middle had a pink penis. The curator of the gallery realized
that they were having trouble interpreting the painting and
offered his personal assessment.
He went on for over half an hour explaining how it depicted
the sexual emasculation of African Americans in a predominately
white patriarchal society.  "In fact", he pointed out, "some
serious critics believe that the pink penis also reflects the
cultural and sociological oppression experienced by gay men
in contemporary society."
After the curator left, an Irishman approached the couple and
asked, "Would you like to know what the painting is really about?"
"Now why would you claim to be more of an expert than the
curator of the gallery?" asked the couple.
"Because I am the artist who painted the picture",he replied,
"In fact, there are no black Americans depicted at all.
They're just three Irish coal miners.
The guy in the middle went home for lunch."
