I visited my parents last night. The following conversation took place as we were watching a programme on BBC4 about the painter, Paul Gauguin, presented by arts critic, Waldemar Janusczak:
Janusczak: The death of Gauguin's mother had an incalculable effect on his psyche…
Dad: What the hell does that mean?
Me: It's Jungian psychoanalytical bollocks.
Dad: But what does it mean?
Mum: It means he was very upset.
