I would suggest surrealist poetry

In my dreams
Picasso stands
with a paint brush
and the breakfast noodle
hoisted on his own picard....

Your turn ! tee hee

but ... but... unless that's a play on Jean Luc, it's "hoisted by his own petard."

"driving down the street, he realized he'd left his little black book at his girlfriend's house. He knew then he'd been hoisted by his own petard."

Palmer and Deb, Gracie is doing alliterative wordplay.

Besides who doesn't want to be hoisted by their own Picard Wink

Hey, where's FL? He should make an avatar of the Picasso image

Perhaps you should write a piece on Patrick Steward doing self-parody?

Ah! I got it!

Someone working a trekkie convention inherits a surplus of Captain Picard lifesize cardboard cutouts!

Mayhem follows!

Who wants to take the nexty plot complication?
