Why riding in an umbrella? Why the hell not? Why are his very-much-alive kids with him on this trip down the proverbial River Styx? Because this piece of artistic genius will not be shackled, yes, SHACKLED, by facts. Why £99,500? Because clearly £99,00 wasn't enough but £100,000 was, you know, too much. There are many things that you could say about this artist, but apparently being greedy isn't one of them.

I've been feeling a bit stressed out at work recently, but you know what's cheered me up no end? This £99,500 painting of a pair of disembodied, levitating hands reaching out to a very, very pale Michael Jackson riding in a massive umbrella with his children on what I can only assume to be a sea of delusion and perpetual atonement. And this brightens my day.
