95 Million?!?

Somebody actually paid $95 million for this painting.

Ninety-five freakin' million dollars!

True, it's a Picasso, but that doesn't mean a whole lot to me personally. If you like him, that's all fine & dandy, but I'd rather look at a rotting banana peel hanging on my wall than that.

Seriously.

Look at it.

To me, that's something from a nightmare or horror movie. I can just see someone walking down the hallway at 3am, on the way to the kitchen for a drink when they see that green face out of the corner of their eye.

*shudder*

you need to admit that some people just don't have good taste in art. and i don't mean you and me, because i find that painting to be an atrocity.

It's not even a question of taste in art. $95 million is just an immoral ammount to pay for a painting. Just thing of how many Bentleys you could buy for the less fortunate rich people who don't have one already.

sarahk - Amen! We should offer our services to those who are challenged in the good taste department. For an appropriate fee, of course.

emaw - Not to mention Vipers, or 'Hemi 'Cudas, or tanks. I'd like a tank, just for those easy Sunday drives, you know...
