35 million $s for this? WTF?
« on: October 29, 2020, 10:23:39 AM »
I guess I can't really knock the guy for being able to command top dollar for something that (to me) looks like it was done in an art class in junior high :idiot2:

I love me some art, but not like the above. Call me a traditionalist.

you misanthropes have no clue.  the cost isnt for the single piece by itself.  its buying into the David Hockney collection as a whole.
Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

$35 mill. Should get me David Hockney's collection, his house and at least 2 or 3 of his kids.  ;D
