Preparing my talk for the DVJ’s symposium on War Photography (although I’m talking about the language rather than the photos) was not dissimilar to a scene from the Keystone Kops. “Keystone” – ‘attrib. Designating a film produced by Keystone Studios, esp. a comedy featuring the Keystone Kops, a group of incompetent policemen often involved in farcical situations or frenetic slapstick; relating to or featuring in such a film. In extended use: reminiscent of the Keystone Kops; farcical, slapstick.’ (OED)

Day #106 of the second 365 project, where the daily pic is informed by the OED word of the day.
