Art is as art does

Strip by: David Morgan-Mar

T-Rex: This comic is completely useless.
T-Rex: But it's Art!
T-Rex: As art, it need not have any practical purpose. Calling any art a "waste of time" is to misunderstand the very concept.
Utahraptor: You're having a good philosophical diatribe there.
T-Rex: Yes. It's a point well worth making.
Utahraptor: So this comic does have a purpose, then?
T-Rex: Damn, foiled again!
T-Rex: Turns out this comicisn't art after all!

Leonardo's failing was that he thought he was doing something useless, but he was actually inventing helicopters 400 years before anyone else.
