Well, it seems some people don't like that 9pm has come and gone and there is no new post. I know because as I was about to write this, I first checked on Facebook to see what was going on, and right at the top of my newsfeed is a message. Asking me where today's post is. From my mother.
|This is my friend Kristine's joke. |
I'll let you all think about it.
So then, at 11:57 at night, my husband has to come downstairs and tell me to stop blowing the whistle at the computer. Okay, that part didn't really happen, it just happened in my head, but I think you see my point here.
You don't? The point is don't show the AARP crowd their way around the computer. Duh. They can only make trouble for everyone. Oh, you don't think so? You just check back and see what comments pop up below from my mother. And from my friends who all think my mother is funny.
And, thanks to my mom, we again won't get to discuss the panning of the movie Grease or the misuse of the word "gay." Everyone's going to have to wait another day for that.
What we do still have time for, and what I just HAD to share is the picture immediately below. You are asking yourself, WTF is that?
|There are not enough words|
to explain this.
That is an 8,500 carat ruby Liberty Bell that is made even more special by the 50 diamond (to represent the 50 states) embellishment on it. Say who? That's right, what looks like about 500 grape Lifesavers melted together is really a ruby. Carved into a Liberty Bell. But, and no explanation is offered for this part, the bell is not only surrounded by diamonds, it seems to be carved into what appears to be either a turtle shell or sea turtle flippers. I am guessing this because at the top is a turtle head. I keep looking to see if maybe it's something else, but I really think it's supposed to be a turtle head. Did I mention the 2 million dollars?
I keep looking for some copy around the description saying it's a joke, but it's not. That may be the ugliest piece of Not Art I have ever seen. I mean where would you even put that? The only nice thing I can say about it is that if you take the diamonds off, you could make yourself a pretty nice tennis bracelet.
In closing, I just want to say that it is my sincerest hope that tomorrow we will get to talk about the fascinating topics we missed out on tonight, thanks to some people. The only thing that might hold that up really is if my husband gets ambitious and tries to figure out how HE can comment on here and on Facebook, which isn't going to happen, so we're good.
