Dali Diver

July 1, 1936: During The International Surrealist Exhibition in London, Salvador Dali attempted to give the lecture 'Fantomes Paranoiaques Authentiques' while wearing a deep-sea diving suit, but almost suffocated and had to be rescued by the young poet, our hauntological hero, David Gascoyne, who arrived with a hammer in the nick of time.

Always a good idea to keep a hammer about your person - just in case a situation like the one mentioned above should occur.

That is all.
