Bazooka Joe is characterized as a teenager who is capable of almost anything. Artistically, however, the only works he has produced are his "raps", despite the quality they are not the same media as Picasso's work, thus the only criticisim that Bazooka Joe can provide for Picasso's works is a purely uninvolved and indirect judgement. Perhaps Picasso's paintings are not readily accepted by the realist crowd the fact is that Picasso is an artist who struggles with inspiration and performance. Since Bazooka Joe is not an artist such as Picasso the statements that he makes are illegitimate without proper considerations of the objective standards of aesthetics such as tone and color. Essentially Bazooka Joe does not feel Picasso's pain. It is also interesting to consider the psychological motives behind a person who fantasizes about meeting a famous person in a moment of their weakness and dis'ing them.
