    DADA EXCITES EVERYTHING

    DADA knows everything. DADA spits everything out.

    BUT . . . . . . . . .

    HAS DADA EVER SPOKEN TO YOU:

    about Italy
    about accordions
    about women's pants
    about the fatherland
    about sardines
    about Fiume
    about Art (you exaggerate my friend)
    about gentleness
    about D'Annunzio
    what a horror
    about heroism
    about mustaches
    about lewdness
    about sleeping with Verlaine
    about the ideal (it's nice)
    about Massachusetts
    about the past
    about odors
    about salads
    about genius, about genius, about genius
    about the eight-hour day
    about the Parma violets

    NEVER NEVER NEVER

    DADA doesn't speak. DADA has no fixed idea. DADA doesn't catch flies.

    THE MINISTRY IS OVERTURNED. BY WHOM?

    BY DADA

    The Futurist is dead. Of What? Of DADA

    A Young girl commits suicide. Because of What? DADA
    The spirits are telephoned. Who invented it? DADA
    Someone walks on your feet. It's DADA
    If you have serious ideas about life,
    If you make artistic discoveries
    and if all of a sudden your head begins to crackle with laughter,
    If you find all your ideas useless and ridiculous, know that

    IT IS DADA BEGINNING TO SPEAK TO YOU

    cubism constructs a cathedral of artistic liver paste
    WHAT DOES DADA DO?
    expressionism poisons artistic sardines
    WHAT DOES DADA DO?
    simultaneism is still at its first artistic communion
    WHAT DOES DADA DO?
    futurism wants to mount in an artistic lyricism-elevator
    WHAT DOES DADA DO?
    unanism embraces allism and fishes with an artistic line
    WHAT DOES DADA DO?
    neo-classicism discovers the good deeds of artistic art
    WHAT DOES DADA DO?
    paroxysm makes a trust of all artistic cheeses
    WHAT DOES DADA DO?
    ultraism recommends the mixture of these seven artistic things
    WHAT DOES DADA DO?
    creationism vorticism imagism also propose some artistic recipes
    WHAT DOES DADA DO?

    WHAT DOES DADA DO?

    50 francs reward to the person who finds the best
    way to explain DADA to us

    Dada passes everything through a new net.
    Dada is the bitterness which opens its laugh on all that which has been made consecrated forgotten in our language in our brain in our habits.
    It says to you: There is Humanity and the lovely idiocies which have made it happy to this advanced age

    DADA HAS ALWAYS EXISTED
    THE HOLY VIRGIN WAS ALREADY A DADAIST

    DADA IS NEVER RIGHT

    Citizens, comrades, ladies, gentlemen

    Beware of forgeries!

    Imitators of DADA want to present DADA in an artistic form which it has never had

    CITIZENS,

    You are presented today in a pornographic form, a vulgar and baroque spirit which is not the PURE IDIOCY claimed by DADA

    BUT DOGMATISM AND PRETENTIOUS IMBECILITY
