    ARTICLE: Man who ate $120,000 banana at art show says 'I'm not sorry'

    :peoples: 

    ...

    He ate artwork before it depreciated in value?

    Other than that, I got nothing.

    The dude's broken English makes the story ten times funnier.

    "People ask me, you eat banana? Physically is was banana, but banana is just a tool."

    I like how he's justifying this by saying his act of eating the banana was art in and of itself :lol

    Are we sure it wasn’t one of Gru’s Minions in disguise?

    This sounds like something they’d do.

    He can always give back the banana, but it'll be brown art now.

    I still find it ridiculous how a measly Banana with duct tape could go for that much money...

    Oh I know, I was just 'fixing' your question. You misspelled "art" and left some necessary words out is all. ;)

    When you ask 'what is art?', you must be prepared for any answer. And sometimes, that answer is delicious.

    Have to agree with your assessment. how this level of pretentious fuckery can be labeled as "art" and that some dumb ass with too much time and money will actually pay top dollar for it is beyond any form of logical reasoning. I get that art is interpretive and subjective, but sometimes a piece of shit is just a piece of shit and a banana is just a banana. Honestly, if it was done by someone who hadn't already made a name for himself I doubt it would be as highly valued or fawned over, but some have more money than sense so there's that too.

    Can't they just, y'know, buy another banana?
    I just bought some last night. I'd gladly hand one over for a percentage of the price of this "art".

    EDIT: Or better yet, I can tape it to a wall myself and make a shitload of money.
    But a banana's been done and eaten...how about a pineapple?

    You get it.

    I've been neck deep in the art/music/etc. world my entire life, and what you said there is exactly it: art is interpretive and subjective, but sometimes a piece of shit is just a piece of shit. And it's exactly these kinds of buffoons that A) call themselves 'artists' or B) support those asshats that ruins it for everyone else... aka the ones that actually HAVE talent and ARE artists. No amount of rich dudes buying this shit or homeless looking/smelling sidewalk chalk drawing millennial hoping to be the next Basquiat saying otherwise changes that.
