what do you see?

true art...

It was similar shenanigans which saw Barry Humphries banned as

a teenager for life from an Australian airline - a ban which remained
throughout his stardom and ended only with the closure of the airline.

His notorious "sick bag" prank involved carrying a tin of condensed
soup onto an aircraft, which he would then surreptitiously emptied
into an air-sickness bag. At an appropriate juncture, he would walk
up and down the aisle pretending to vomit very loudly and violently
into the bag. Then, he would proceed to eat the contents to the horror
of the passengers and crew, many of whom would start vomiting (for real)
as a result. Best...Prank...Ever!
