Printed Screenshot of Famous 4Chan Post Sold on eBay for $90,900

This is the neatest, weirdest thing I've seen all week.

4Chan is a huge imageboard posting site. Some time ago, an anonymous poster commented about how loose aesthetic standards have become. S/he argued that modern art is so silly that even that very post could be considered art.

The anonymous poster was correct. In fact, that post could be an enormously expensive piece of art. A framed, printed screenshot of that very post was sold on eBay for $90,900.

Isn't that nuts? No, not yet. This is, after all, the internet.

The original framed, printed screenshot of that 4Chan post is gone. But you can buy a framed, printed screenshot of its eBay listing. That auction lasts another day. The current bidding is $50,200.

Not a screen shot (Ctrl + Prt Scr), but an actual photograph of the monitor.
The reflection of the flash and lens distortion of the image are dead-giveaways.
It does prove however, that almost anything can be art.
Abusive comment hidden. (Show it anyway.)
