Peggy Hill Art Fag01


When Hank asks Peggy to design an art piece for Strickland Propane, she creates the "Probot," a statue made out of propane tanks. Her sculpture is rejected by the city board, but picked up by an art dealer from Dallas. Unfortunately, Peggy finds out that the dealer presents her to the public as an uneducated hillbilly. Meanwhile, Dale starts wearing a suit of armor and uses his newfound invincibility to insult people without consequences.


The episode title is a reference to the surrealist painting "La trahison des images" ["The treachery of images"] by Renee Magritte (1898-1967), consisting of a painting of a man's pipe with the caption "Ceci n'est pas une pipe" or "This is not a pipe." As Magritte said of it, "The famous pipe. How people reproached me for it! And yet, could you stuff my pipe? No, it's just a representation, is it not?" In short, it's a painting, it's not a pipe. The phrase "Ceci n'est pas une pipe" is considered to be a manifesto of modern art and its nonrepresentational nature.
