Big ears

At Art Basel...

Astonished collector: “This price. Are you serious?”
Dealer: “As a clam.”

“…and the question I ask is, ‘Why this skull? Why that skull?’ ”

Visitor: “But I just want to take a photo of the label, not the art. Art is not the same thing.”
Guard: “No photos.”

“But we don’t have the sort of money you need to buy that sort of art.”
“What sort of money do you need?”

“If I buy the video do I get to have the projector as well?”
“You can have the screen and chairs if you want to pay for them.”

Collector on phone (screaming) “But does it say Monet on the back?”
