    Talking This story makes me laugh..

    http://news.sky.com/skynews/article/...293076,00.html

    An old couple and their son scam museums with fake Egyptian statuette and other artifacts.

    Its not the crime as such that makes me laugh nor the age of the people involved ( 83 and 84 ) but the fact thet artsy fartsy people who deal in other peoples work ( and artifacts that IMO should just be left alone ) got well and truely OWNED!

    Christies even said the statue was authentic. Makes you wonder if half the stuff they sell for a shitload of money is real if they cant tell a statue that dates back to 1350BC from one "made" by and old couple and their son
    Mr Sploodge, Accept No Imitations!

    They sold it for thousands saying it was really old, but if they were to sell it for the same amount of an art gallery as a reflection on old items it would be legal lmao
