Pooh Bombs at Bonhams

E. H. Shepard - Winnie-The-Pooh and Tigger (1958)This unpublished crayon drawing Winnie-The-Pooh and Tigger by E.H. Shepard fetched a mere £21,600 at Bonhams in London. Pooh Visiting in Owl's Parlour (CLICK) failed to sell, and four sketches for the A.A. Milne poem Missing sold for only £3,600. These prices were well below the estimated values. So, poor old Pooh isn't one for the vaults of big-money "art" investors. Good thing too; those tasteless twerps drive up auction prices to insane levels.

What my mum calls "more money than sense", a lot of them.

You have to sympathise though - it must be so difficult finding stuff to spend all those ill-gotten billions on, eh?

Yeah, my heart bleeds for them. All those millions coming in every week and the worry of trying to get rid of it all. Damien Hirst has the answer; he's covering a skull with diamonds to sell for £100 million. That'll put some poor soul out of his misery ... for a few years at least.
