    This is the OP, posting the OP, and that's the sentence or paragraph which establishes the subject.

    This is the follow up sentence or paragraph that outlines the guidelines for participation, ending with an encouraging and witty flourish, a verbal hook to reel you in.

    This final sentence acknowledges in advance that YOU are interested and eager.

    Close enough?

    The medium is the message, I guess.

    Is a blank canvas with the words "This is art" printed on it actually art? I feel like I'm not postmodern and pretentious enough to answer that.

    You could go infinitely close to 0 and never arrive there so nothing is always at least a little something.

    Did you ever see Joe vs the Volcano?
    A character is an "artist" who makes line drawings of various garbage with "This is a scene!" in word bubbles

    It's perfectly straightforward and laid out plainly
    I'm the kind of guy who says what he means and ends sentences without punctuation
