Humor Me


Last week someone visiting the Metropolitan Museum of Art fell into a Picasso (valued at over $100 million), resulting in a 6 inch tear in the front of the canvas.

Beyond thinking, "So glad that wasn't me", Laura posed a question so absurd – I had to share:

 



  • cjdunn

    And the tenure of the museum curator responsible for protecting the art becomes shorter

  • Semi Permanant Girl

    It is not an absurd question – people's bodies are valuable. History has shown that companies pay people to advertise on their bodies (http://www.leaseyourbody.com/main.php), you can insure body parts (http://www.slate.com/id/2142783/), and people rent wombs to have children – so it stands to reason that a person may have value if they are able devalue something.

    Absolutely the body of the person increases in value. You see they become infamous for being a klutz. Like Duh…
