You Got Your Elbow In My Picasso

No, you got your Picasso on my elbow.

Klutziness Costs Steve Wynn a 'Hole' Lot

Tuesday, October 17, 2006

Talk about putting the "D'oh!" in a painting worth a whole lot of dough.

Just a day after arranging to sell Pablo Picasso's "Le Reve" (French for "The Dream") for a record-setting chunk of cash, casino owner "Steve Wynn" put a silver dollar-sized hole in the prized painting with his elbow in front of a star-studded group that included Barbara Walters and screenwriters Nora Ephron and Nicholas Pileggi, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

Now I have done a few clumsy things in my life, I drove my Dad's car into a freezer (the freezer was in the garage not in the house) and then there was the time I replaced the batteries in a calculator only to turn it upside down and watch all the keys fall out. Both of these "Clumsy" incidents cost maybe a total of $300.00, maybe.......
But to put your elbow through a 139 million dollar painting, that you just sold, damn.... The fact that someone would actually pay $139 million dollars for a painting, double damn.
I understand that Wynn has some really jacked up eye problem, but if you have his kind on money you hire people to stand between you and anything that you might possibly damage.
