OK, this is one funny prank
« on: October 06, 2018, 05:25:35 PM »
Not being a fa of this sort of art or a prank aficionado, I'd never heard of Banksy, but this is really funny:

I was checking CNN to see if the confirmation had gone through and saw this headline about a painting that self-destructed immediately after being sold for $1.4 million at auction at Sotheby's.  Apparently, Banksy is known for pulling stunts, in this case, building a remotely-activated shredder into the painting's frame and having it turned on right after the sale.
