Cf. "I have nothing to say and I am saying it -- and that's poetry" J. Cage 
(anyone has the complete text?)
Incidentally, on a slightly related note, M. L. Pratt interprets Julio 
Cortazar's short story 'Blow-up' as a _flout_ to Grice's cooperative principle:

       "The narrator of Julio Cortazar's story 'Blow-up' (1959) 
       spends his first few pages wondering if he has anything 
       at all to communicate and wishing the typewriter could 
       be entrusted to produce the text without his intervention."




J. Wager: 

"I am the only one who has not talked," concluded the fourth pupil.
(#71 of Zen Stories)

Torgeir Fjeld:

>phatic remarks, while twisting on his dancing shoes (which also serves as 
>his work shoes -- phatic is a poor dancer)  that it seems that a post 
>declaring it's own status as lurking is inherently paradoxical. It almost 
>makes me feel alive, phatic says, with an implicit nod to McEvoy.
