Jack the Dripper
It's a black...er...grey day for art when tripe by Jack the Dripper (Jackson Pollock's nickname) breaks the record for the most expensive painting ever sold: $140m (£73m) according to the New York Times. So, what drip paid this ridiculous sum for No. 5, 1948? Mexican financier David Martinez. You plonker! When the world wakes up to the fact that Dripper's alleged art is rubbish, you won't be able to give it away. And that day will come!
