    From the files of : When you know you have too much money...

    A banana duct-taped to a wall was sold for $120,000 at Art Basel Miami
    A banana duct-taped to a wall sold for $120,000 at Miami's Art Basel this week — it may be the most talked-about artwork at this year's event. Two of the three editions have been sold, according to Perrotin, the contemporary art gallery behind the work. The last one is expected to go for $150,000.

    I loved the old Richard Pryor joke "Cocaine is God's way of telling you you have too much money". *rimshot* :)

    How does one go about proving that this is THE banana duct taped to the wall by the original creator and not a mere replica?

    I would be more inclined to call it idiot art.

    This sort of "art work" does not appeal to me.
