Why doesn't this happen to me?!

So... this woman in North Carolina goes to her local Goodwill store, and finds this large (rather unimpressive) painting on canvas. She paints cats... cats... so she buys the canvas painting for $9.99 with the intention of painting over it (a cat, of course). Long story short... a few months later, she ends up selling the painting (an original "Vertical Diamond" by Ilya Bolotowsky) for $27,000!!!

That will buy her a lot of canvases... for a lot more cats.

Cats....!?
I would at least have painted potted plants.....ha! ...truly. This stuff never happens -- but perhaps we need more time at the Goodwill, eh?
