Hirst Junk Sells
There certainly is one born every minute! An Irish punter with no taste in art lashed out £32,000 on this pile of junk, entitled Red Rubber Ball, by Moneybags Hirst in today's auction at Duke's of Dorchester in Dorset. I mean, if you saw this pile of junk in a car boot sale - a plastic rabbit, dried rose, the head of a doll and other meaningless bits and bobs - would you pay a fiver for it, let alone £32,000? And the punter is reportedly happy with his purchase! Bet his wife tells him to put it in the shed. "Ah, fer foch's sake, Shamus, yer not bringing that junk in me house."
