Is that a bowl? More like an ash tray. You might get away with feeding your dog out of that thing. Anyway how much would you pay for it? $8.99? $9.99?
How about 30 fucking million dollars?
(Newser) – Handle with care: A 900-year-old ceramic dish dating back to China’s Song dynasty has sold for $26.7 million at a Sotheby’s auction in Hong Kong, reports the AP. It was probably used to clean brushes by a Song scholar back in the day, notes Bloomberg. Only about 70 “Ru” pieces exist from this particular kiln, making the dish the “most fabled Chinese ceramic ever to come at auction,” says a Sotheby’s official. “This is the fantasy of all collectors.” Also driving demand: a growing number of newly rich Chinese collectors
Sounds reasonable huh? I made shit out of clay in elementary school that looks better than this piece of 26 million dollar shit. Next time someone tries to stop me on the street to get me to sign a clip board to donate to charity or some homeless person asks me for money or some cold caller is asking for me to join a foundation I’m gonna say “Fuck you! Go find the dickhead buying a 30 million dollar bowl.” There’s plenty of money out there you don’t need a dime from my broke ass.
PS – Whats gonna be more valuable at a 30 million dollar price tag – this bowl or A Rod in his 40s? Probably a toss up right?
