It is intriguing that Annise wears her uniform to an art show. (Perhaps she has just gotten off work?) This episode offers possibly an allegorical commentary on modern art. Not necessarily a negative commentary; after all, obsessions come in all forms, and where would we be without them?
Annise always wears her uniform because she’s always on duty (even when she’s off duty)!
Once, long ago, at the University of Chicago, famous literary scholar Bernard Weinberg, having learned that I (a first-year graduate student) was working on a degree in Comparative Literature (whereas he was in the Romance Langs & Lits Department), asked me: “What do you compare it to? SHIT?” To which I did not reply, though I wish I had: “Yes! When it deserves it!”
All seriousness aside, however, I sympathize with young Ralph to the extent that I think our attitudes towards shit are by and large much too negative.
