A piece of art titled ‘The Comedian’ was on display at a Miami gallery. Stranger still, it sold for $120,000. Even stranger still…

An Italian artist named Maurizio Cattelan created this unbelievable piece titled ‘The Comedian’.

Yes, it was a banana. Yes, it is duct taped to the wall. Yes, that’s all it is.

Yes, $120,000. Yes, that’s stupid.

No, we don’t get it, either.

Oh, one more thing. After the piece was sold for $120,000 (did we mention how much someone spent on a banana duct taped to the wall?), another artist ate the banana, calling it ‘performance art’.

The banana was replaced.
