Ahhh yes, Stainless Steel is my favorite metal/s to work with.
But I must admit I've never been paid that much at the end of a job. :lol:

I see it was "actioned" though,,,,,, :wtf:

I got quite a bit of an "art" collection, in s/steel too.
Difference is that I can take mine out in the rain and shoot Brer Rabbit, of something larger, to put some food on the plate

It’s 1 of 3 Stix - they’d still be 2 left and me blowin one up would drive prices up for the other two!!!
Unless i use flyers economics, in which case, those remaining two would be better broken down into pieces, melted into ingots, sold on the black market behind the vale of...but sheeeesh. How many ppl really wanted this thing to drive the price to $131,000, 000.00 ?

Hey hey... you are forgetting how labour actually made this rabbit and how unions got us our freedom to even see.

I hear labours biggest achievement was creating the wheel... and you know without the wheel we still be walking to work..... hang on does that mean greens want us to go back
Blame it on the phone auto correct

I can see why people would pay a squillion for that.

Supply and demand.


There's an endless supply of tasteless multi millionaire wanchors who've all seen this rabbit shiny thing ... and only 1 rabbit shiny thing.
