From the article:
> A banana, duct-taped to a wall went on a sale at Art Basel Miami Beach this week -- priced at around $120,000. And, according to the gallery behind the work, two of the three editions have already sold, with the last now going for even more.
What i find most hilarious is not the price tag but the fact the artist spent a year contemplating bananas and trying different materials until he settled on a random real banana he picked up at a publix somewhere. Lol
That banana would have literally saved a starving person's life today. The $120K wouldn't have hurt, either. Point being, if you have $120K to spend on a banana, I sure as fuck hope you're doing some good in the world, too. I'd like to think the person who bought this also donated $1M to fight hunger and homelessness. And I hope the "artist" who was paid for this is either hit by a train, or donates their proceeds.
