Mayor of Lawrence, Kansas proclaims International Dadaism Month

Lawrence residents, pay heed to what your mayor has to say — “zimzim urallala zimzim urallala zimzim zanzibar zimzalla zam.”

No, really.

Mayor Boog Highberger wants to awaken Lawrence to the wacky world of Dadaism, an early 20th century art movement that embraced chance, randomness and nonsense. On Tuesday, Highberger will proclaim International Dadaism Month at the city’s weekly commission meeting.

Hat tip to Eitan for pointing out this celebration of absurdity.
