Yes, absolutely ... and when one injects, say, surrealism or humour into the equation ... things get stranger still. But, by the by - almost in a Hegelian dialectical way - surreality's intentioned antithesis itself becomes thesis. I have this notion of a moral surrealism - one that does not seek to tell kinds of lies; a surrealism which reveals truths about reality, accepting that it is part of reality, rather than pretending it is other than reality. The best humour does this - taking reality temporarily out of kilter, but returning to reality itself something stronger.
