How's this for weird? Millie Brown creates her paintworks by drinking coloured milk and then... vomiting it all over the canvas. Sometimes all over herself, too. The rather abstract paintings -- and truly no two are alike -- actually sell. And they are not cheap either.
Weird? Trust me, you're not alone. As Spooky from Oddity Central beautifully puts it:
Why anyone would pay to own someone else's colored puke is beyond my understanding. I mean, if we were talking about Justin Bieber's vomit, I could understand, I'm pretty sure there are some girls out there who would pay anything just to sniff his dirty underwear, but this isn't the case. One of Brown's artworks, Nexus Vomitus, created to an acoustic accompaniment of opera singers Patricia Hammond and Zita Syme, sold for $2,400, which is just mind-boggling.
Wait... selling Justin Bieber's used underwear may be a potentially unexploited market. If the Japanese can sell high school girls' underwear [NSFW] (click here for a SFW link), what's stopping Bieber from tapping that potential market? Wait, how did we go from vomit on canvas to smelling Justin Bieber's used underwear? I better stop now.
