Bill Gates' skull is still worth more.

They totally should have given this to the guy who hacked the iPhone.

If I had an extra $100 million lying around, I totally would have bought that.

I think that sound I heard earlier today, must've been Mr. Hirst laughing all the way to the bank.

Well, I personally think the thing looks great on my desk, 3 people have complimented me on it so far, and you jealous folks can just shut up.

Weird. Strangely captivating. I think Damien Hirst is an interesting artist. He had some stuff at the Portland Art Museum recently...I liked the huge medical cabinets the best...I'm pretty sure that was Hirst at least. Here's a conversation you can have with this skull: my you've got quite a good head on your shoulders! hahaha. Just kidding. That was the lamest joke ever!!!

We found a little splatter-painting postcard from a promo thing by Mr. Hirst when we were moving. It's signed and all, with good provenance. Do you think it's worth much? I need some bedroom furniture.

Believe it or not, this is a serious question.

@ 10: it is worth something.

Thanks Max.

Funny... the nouveau riche used to have diamonds set in their own teeth. Maybe there's a place for a "Hire-a-Skull" service... &/or maybe someone that will get all the piercings that you think are cool, and then follow you around, displaying them... ^..^
