    Somebody has far too much time on there hands. The question is why? It's cool looking, but you couldn't give it to me. Totally worthless in my opinion.

    He is a local artist and has won awards for recycled art. Just thought it was cool and trying to support a local kid.

    If you paid more than $50 for that, I hope your wife kicks you right in the nuts.

    It think it is cool also. Not all the guy's here have to answer to a ball and chain either. That would be a great conversation piece. Nice of you to support an artist also.

    I'm a ball and chain and I think the mantle above the fireplace would be a lovely spot for this! As a matter of fact, I would be the one insisting he buy it!

    If you liked it so much, why does he have to spend his money? Why don't you just buy it yourself?

    I think it's cool as well. Of course it has no use other than, as Noisy Cow pointed out, a conversation piece, but what's wrong with that? Artists(especially those that are "gun-friendly") need to eat and be clothed as well. I may take a trip from Portland just to see this and when I do, I'm sure I'll buy something. So from a business standpoint maybe it's not such a useless thing after all. Well done. Kip

    He was eyeballing it, and I had to support him. It would look so much better on the mantle if he was able to say "I bought this because I wanted it".
    Hell, he could have used my money.!
    Quite frankly, if he hadn't bought it I would have. He would have tried to talk me out of it though, saying "we don't have a spot for that".
