ARTFARTS™: Casino Mogul's Handlers Nervous About The Next Steve Wynn Rooftop Commercial Shoot

Another new department begins today: ARTFARTS™, wherein we here at JohnEats.com bring you the ins and outs of the Art World. From kiddie drawings done by twentysomethings with ironic facial hair to big-ticket auction fare, ARTFARTS™ will leave no stone that post-modernly references a panel from an old Nancy comic strip unturned.

And if you get that reference, you obviously read Zippy The Pinhead.


Steve Wynn, the Las Vegas casino mogul who does those annoying commercials where he talks to you from the top of his hotel's roof, has just cost himself $139 million according to this report on BBC News.

It seems the peripheral vision-challenged Wynn stuck his elbow through the middle of a Picasso in his office while "wildly gesticulating" and now can't sell it as he'd planned. His downward spiral of self-hatred began soon after, when issuing this quote:
'Look what I've done' he said. 'Thank goodness it was me.'
Yes, thank goodness. Have fun looking in the mirror, Steve -- and at the gaping hole in the middle of the most expensive painting ever.

This is worse than that time I dropped trow and urinated on that Duchamp sculpture.

Psychictoad: The only thing funnier than that joke's concept was its execution. Bravo.
