    Wonder how long until it gets pulled. I got a laugh out of it.

    (edit)
    Ebay pulled the auction so here's what it was.

    I don't know. That should have been a LOT funnier.

    But thanks for sharing it anyway [​IMG]

    Take care,

    Yea, I'm not sure I'd call that funny given what it is a "parody" of.

    i don't get it. a world-famous painting, worth about 75 million dollars -- and no security measures? wtf?

    the dudes walked in, pulled it off the walls, cut a couple of wires, and walked out.

    what i wanna know is, who the f is gonna buy it? if they plan on ransoming it back, i would love to see how they plan to not get caught.

    Kyle asked for a title change - so it represents his real meaning better. Done.

    It seems quite obvious to me that the 'painting' is actually a cheap print in a frame. This is just another creative Ebay ad designed to make people spend $200 on a $20 item.

    And it seems quite obvious to me that Ted knows perfectly well that the eBay auction is a joke and that he's commenting on the actual robbery of the real painting, not the eBay nonsense. [​IMG]

    It's NOT so obvious to me! The seller had a 100% feedback rating, no one would risk that for "a joke".

    Well, there were two items of feedback and the guy was the buyer....not much to risk if you ask me.
