Elephant Man Portrait Postcard

I found this on Etsy today: a postcard with an original drawing of The Elephant Man on it. Imagine mailing this postcard to someone you dislike. Just the blank postcard, with no message written on back. I think it's a great idea.

But am I willing to pay $75 just to make someone feel confused, and maybe a little threatened? At first I would say no, but then again, the postcard comes with a signed "certificate of authenticity." So now I'm kind of on the fence. What do you think?

  2. I think being disliked by you would be a very disturbing experience.

  3. This is rather humorous. What is the "certificate of authenticity" trying to authenticate? Nothing is old in/on the printed postcard and we know the artist's name.

    Imagine receiving the postcard with the message, "Wish you were here!" Or perhaps, "See you soon!" Yikes, I hope not.

    I am just being silly on a Sunday afternoon. Kelly, happy to see you are studying art. Keep up the good work.
