Like A Vandal

Sometimes, you just read a story and you think you couldn't laugh any harder . . .

BBC News: 'Tycoon Holes Dream Picasso Deal'

'A US casino mogul has pulled out of a deal to sell his Picasso painting for a record $139m (£74m) after accidentally elbowing a hole in the middle.'

'Las Vegas magnate Steve Wynn was showing Le Reve (The Dream) to guests at his office in Las Vegas last month.'

'Mr Wynn, who has retinitis pigmentosa, an eye disease affecting peripheral vision, tore a coin-sized hole.'

'He will now keep the painting, which he bought in 1997 for $48.4m, and repair it, his spokeswoman said.'

Absolutely hilarious.

Man with bad eyes buys a stupid fucking painting for 48 million dollars, puts hole in it.
It is really really hilarious. THanks.
LMAO! i feel bad that he has retinitis pigmentosa (runs in my fam) but really--greedy fucker wanted to make more money and blew it? GOOD.
I know, I know - shouldn't take the piss out of disabled people, right? Still, the man is a multi-billionaire who owns a fair few casinos in Vegas. I think I'd take a gammy eye for all that cash.
