Rich Idiots Pay 50 Grand For a Finger Painting and Now Want $500k After Suing School

Useless investment banker and his barbie doll Frau deserve to be the laughing stock of the Upper East Side.

The horror!

“On one occasion, plaintiffs’ 5-year-old son was relegated to the role of ‘door-holder’ and ordered to hold the door for all of the other students.”

Does anyone recall a documentary about a young girl, maybe 5 yo, painting huge abstract paintings and getting big $$$ for them? There was speculation that her artist father actually did the paintings and she added a few brush strokes at the end. This was several years ago. I've wondered what happened to the young girl and if she still paints.

I can't wait to hear the school's side of the story. And what kind of idiot says "bid until we win"? Do they not understand how auctions work?

Is she wearing a fur-trimmed Snuggie?

This story reeks of reverse eletism. Tell me in what world the teacher would really have been able to afford $50,000 to purchase the fingerpainting? The parents have a point.

Yeah, r6, that's sort of how I'm seeing it. I think the remedy the lawsuit seeks is ridiculous, but the actual lawsuit sounds like it has merit. Why did the teacher want to spend 50 grand on a finger painting? How likely was it that she could have afforded it if she won?

I love you, R5.

R1, you left out the best part: little Hudson Cornelius.

Maybe we can describe it like this: Banker takes unlimited bet. Bet goes wrong. Banker loses unrealistic amount of money. Banker wants bail-out plus damages.

Been here before.

This is even more ghastly than the time that Gloria Upson stepped on the ping pong ball!

Hyacinth and Hudson? I'm just surprised they didn't name him Sheridan.

Then you're admitting you're just here to troll, r14.

What the hell is the difference between a child's painting, and someone who chooses to paint like a child?

When I was a child, holding the door open was a coveted position of responsibility...

Like milk-monitor and blackboard cleaner.

Sounds like Six Degrees of Separation. Wonder if a slender cute boy will show up claiming to be Sidney Poitier

"Doucheparents". My new favorite compound word.
