out and create sculptures exploring dry cleaning. The family didn’t know what to make of

Les’ artistic explorations. “Well Les will be Les,” said Morton, and they laughed.

As Morton continued to make a name for himself in political punditry, Les decided to

paint from a new angle, getting inside of a large dryer to create paintings from a ‘clotheseye

view’. Tragically, he was unable to engage the latch to extricate himself from the

machine, and was tumble-desiccated to death, banging frantically on the dryer door while

customers folded their clothes.

Posthumously, Les’ work became iconic. “Item #23: ‘Man at Detergent Dispenser’, a

painting truly emblematic of a time and place in American history,” called the auctioneer

and the bidding accelerated furiously at the auction house, much to Morton’s disbelief.

‘Man at Detergent Dispenser’ sold for $54 million. Les’ work would go on to influence

future artists, who created paintings and sculptures based not only on laundry machines,

but also clothes hampers and ironing boards. Les’ name lived on in history, known for

launching a genre of Laundry Art.

Morton would continue as a political commentator for another twenty years, and when he

retired, another herd of pundits replaced him, doing the exact same thing, commenting on

who said what about whom.
