Good night, Westley. Sleep well. I’ll most likely kill you in the morning.
The Onion already got that scoop last June.
You’re so vain… I bet you think this eBay auction is about you… don’t you…
FTL: “Art > Direct from the Artist > Other”
Either jaybuysthings is Banksy, or that listing is in the wrong category. I’m not sure which is more likely.
This sounds like that old (MacPaint rendered) comic “Shatter” where every one is a “Temp”: as in you are only temporarily you until you win an auction on a new identity.
Seller has 100% positive feedback. IT’S LEGIT!
seems the listing was removed
since it’s rumored that there’s more than one banksy, that would be quite a trick.
It’s been removed, I don’t think ebay allows the selling of someone’s identity. So that’s that.
I heard that if you won you’d just be sent a bobcat, so no harm done.
I thought Banksy’s identity had already been confirmed as Robin Gunningham from Bristol.
The Daily Mail found out everything about him (or said that they had):
None of the other press ever mention this, because I think having a mystery man makes him seem more interesting.
“This listing (260719875075) has been removed, or this item is not available.”
Well, that didn’t last long. Anyone screencap it?
