Overpriced "art"

I agree with Whiteturtle. Whoever paid that huge amount for this piece of "art" is stupid. What a waste of good money!

I have bananas and duct tape. Think I could sell one too? Maybe I'd need to change it to an ear of corn so I'm not charged with plagiarism.

Why didn't I think of this?
I could do this stuff and it wouldn't interfere with my drinking!


PS Can't imagine what my Art history teachers would say.

What kind of idiot would spend that amount of money on something so ridiculous!

That amount of money could have been more wisely spent towards a cause or towards helping someone in need.

Did you read the article? He's already sold 2 others for $120,000 each.

I'd be happy to duct tape something to a wall for far less $$. I don't need a $199,999 profit.

If? If it starts to decompose?

It’s not an original design.

Maybe they’ll swap it out for a plastic banana from Hobby Lobby. Hmmm... since they were stupid enough to pay $120K for the “art,” maybe not.
