What a piece of work
Having spent a day searching for houses for sale under $152 (in an effort to emulate Mrs Richard Fuld, who picked hers up from Mr Richard Fuld, former Lehman Bros chief exec, for said price) I am sorry to report that there are no such houses for sale in Sydney.
To my great surprise houses here start at $50 gazillion so I'm going to have to call off my $152 Deluxe Gold-Plated Mansion Housewarming Party planned for Friday night.
On the plus side, and well within my budget, I found the simply smashing brooch above. It has the visual simplicity of an Anselm Kiefer, the comical whimsy of a Bob Saget, and the intellectual acuity of a George Dubya AND it's got a 'buy it now' price of $10 on eBay. Sweet.
But who would buy such a thing, dear reader? If you look really closely at the imitation wood grain on the 'for sale' sign you can just make out the inscription: "Dear Wubsy, we really screwed those suckers. Love, Richard."
