Default I just don't get "art"

This thing sold for $104 million dollars. That's over a hundred times more money than Dr. Evil originally wanted. A statue of a skinny man. I truly don't get art. Or, probably more accurately, I just don't understand the commercial value attached to some art.

I like the relationships. I mean, each character has his own story. The puppy is a bit too much, but you have to over look things like that in these kinds of paintings. The way he's *holding* her... it's almost... filthy. I mean, he's about to kiss her and she's pulling away. The way the leg's sort of smashed up against her... Phew... Look how he's painted the blouse sort of translucent. You can just make out her breasts underneath and it's sort of touching him about here. It's really... pretty torrid, don't you think? Then of course you have the onlookers peeking at them from behind the doorway like they're all shocked. They wish. Yeah, I must admit, when I see a painting like this, I get emotionally... erect.

I don't care for Garfunkel much either.
