"A 2001 statue of a kneeling Adolf Hitler sold for a record $17.2 million at a Christie's auction in New York."

"'Him,' a wax statue of a child-like Hitler by the Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan, fetched a record for one of the sculptor's works.... Cattelan's work, which features real human hair, is from an edition of three depicting Hitler praying."

A sucker born every minute.

Probably purchased by the same Germans who just bought Krispy Kreme.

Where is Chuck? Surely this has served as inspiration for another long screed about how much he hates Trump! Maybe Trump bought it through a straw buyer to add to his masturbatorium? That has to be it!

Wait until the lucky lady bidder brings "Him" home and tries to put "Him" on display.

Him

Him, him, him
What's she gonna do about him
She's gonna have to do without him
Or do without me, me, me
No one gets to get it for free
It's me or it's him

Don't know what he looks like
Don't know who he is
Don't know why, she thought that I
Would say what's mine is his

I don't want to own her
But I can't let her have it both ways
Three is one too many of us
She leaves with me, or says with

If she wants to, she can have him
Just exactly how we once were
It's goodbye to you and I
Back to her and I without

Time for me to make the girl see
It's me or it's him, him, him
What's she gonna do about him
She's gonna have to do without him
Or do without me, me, me

$17.4 million? What do you imagine the re-sale value would be?
