It's Just a Flesh Wound

Las Vegas gaming tycoon Steve Wynn recently poked a hole in "Le Reve", a 1932 painting by Pablo Picasso that the 64-year-old billionaire had just sold for 139 million dollars. Wynn's reaction upon discovering the two three-inch-long rips was reported to be, "Oh shit. Look what I've done." Which kind of makes me wish Steve Wynn was president. Because when Wynn pokes a hole through something irreplaceable...

... at least he's aware of what he's done.

Ok, you get mad crazy props for that. That my friend, was an awesome post.
On an unreated note, you would think that a rich and talented artist like Picasso could have had a girlfriend that was a little more attractive than that, maybe one without at large black crevice dividing her face. I'm just sayin'...

Not to mention that the left side of her face looks strangely like a penis.
