A title contributes strongly to the détournement of a work, but a reaction of the work on the title is inevitable. Thus one can make an extended usage of specific titles borrowed from scientific publications or military ones; and even from many phrases found in illustrated books for children. The French word détournement means deflection, diversion, rerouting, distortion, misuse, misappropriation, hijacking, or otherwise turning something aside from its normal course or purpose. This piece, as well as this paragraph, can be reproduced, imitated, or partially quoted, without the slightest indication of origin.
