It’s Not Like I’m Always Asking You For Stuff

Unlike most other blogs, we here at Nihilist in Golf Pants have never asked you, the reader, for a single thing. We’ve had no pledge drive, no paypal button, no amazon wish list, not even blog ads. There are three reasons for our restraint:
1. We don’t want to annoy our readers (in that manner).
2. If we need something, we can afford to buy it ourselves.
3. We don’t think any of you have enough money to give us anything good. What are we supposed to do with four bucks in paypal donations? Go to the Dollar Store? I think not.

On the other hand, we have been one of the most persuasive voices on the internet when it comes to defending the wealthy and powerful. It would only be natural that some of you would want to reward us. Fortunately, the Impressionist and Modern Art Sales are coming up next week at Sotheby’s and Christie’s.

As you know, I am quite an art connoisseur. Anything from the evening sales would be acceptable, but here are some of my favorites from the catalogs:
From Sotheby’s Impressionist & modern Art Evening Sale

New Bond Street, London

Femme Au Grand Chapeau by Kees Van Dongen
La Magie Noire by Rene Magritte

From Christie’s Impressionist & Modern Art Evening Sale21 June 2005, 7:00 pm8 King Street, St. James's, London

Préparation à la danse, le pied droit en avant by Edgar Degas
La dormeuse, Mika nue sur un divan by Kees Van Dongen
La vénus endormie by Paul Delvaux

Also, don’t forget to pay the gift tax for me. It would be tacky to leave me with a large tax bill like Oprah did to those poor folks she gave cars to.

Dr. Jonz, not if other people buy it for you.

Chad, I may get nothing, but I don't have to like it.
