Modern Art: It's not going to get any weirder

An Italian artist takes a year to come up with an idea. The idea he finally comes up with?

A banana duct taped to a wall. He called it "Comedian".

It gets better: He did this three times.

The first two sold for $120k
The third is supposed to sell for $150k
The artwork is sold with a certificate of authenticity that tells the owners that the banana may have to be replaced periodically.

But wait--it gets better!

A New York "performance artist" walked into the Miami Florida gallery filled with art lovers where one of the bananas is duct taped to the wall and eats the banana. He called his "performance" "Hungry Artist".

The moral? If you want a $120-150K piece of artwork hanging on your wall, go to the grocery store, buy a $0.49 banana and duct tape it to your wall.

Banana sells for $120k
Man eats banana

IF you have never been to the MOMA (Museum of Modern Art) in Manhattan, it is absolutely full of crap like this.

It was almost entertaining the shit they was considered "art".

I'm a pretty good salesman. I've always been at or near the top of any organization I've ever worked with. But I can only dream of reaching this level of salesmanship. Selling duct taped bananas for six figures? Damn.

I figured it was pretty much self-explanatory.

It wasnt even an odd color duct tape, just plain silver.

Banana, duct tape, wall, done.

Fun fact - if you go to MOMA and find a blank spot on the wall, and stand in front of it for a long enough period of time people will start to "observe" you and take pictures of you ask me how I know.

Some of this has got to be money laundering.

Actually it could work for the retarded nephew "artist" chosen, because the last steering wheel covered in boogers sold to an anonymous buyer for 237k, now the collectors want one too

Its been a personal observation that Modern art, conspiracy theory, progressive jazz and e.e. cummings poetry typically falls into 1 of 3 categories;

You get it
You dont get it
You dont care if you get it or not.

"Modern Art: It's not going to get any weirder"

You wanna bet? There's only direction for it all to go, and that's south into to bowels of Satan himself.
