Laugh of the Day

I may not have as much money as Les Moonves, but I do have better art in my house.

I don’t know why they’d buy a piece of shit like this. I don’t know why they’d hang it in their house. I don’t know why Julie Chen would want a blouse like that memorialized in oils. But most of all, I don’t know what they’re toasting. That’s what’s really nagging at me.

The ratings for Harper’s Island?
The success of The Mentalist?
The triumphant return of Joe Mantegna?

Kinda reminds me of the endless stories in our local rag magazines about rich people’s homes in Sioux Falls. They’ll build a $2 million dollar house and decorate the walls with fake canvas print paintings from Hobby Lobby. April is right, you cannot buy taste.

Of course people around here aren’t going to decorate their McMansions with real art. Real art is expensive and has to be purchased from dirty liberals.

would you be referring to one of our city council members and his beautiful wife?
Funny I thought that article was just a free ad for them to sell their house, the one with multiple washer/dryers in every bedroom. I never knew the rich didn’t have to sort laundry.

Or do laundry for that matter.

and GoD, real art is not that expensive.

I know that, but try telling that to someone who’s never been to a gallery.

1st rule; Never buy art in a gallery – unless it is a CO-OP. If you see something you like, call the artist on your own. Not only will you get it cheaper, they may have something else you like better.

Or you could just “display” the artist’s work, and hope he forgets you have it…

oh wait…

I thought I gave you that painting, but I guess not, thanks for the reminder!
