In April, according to a New York Times story, when a Japanese art collector sought to choose between Sotheby's and Christie's auction houses to handle a sale (which ultimately brought in $17.8 million) and quixotically asked the two houses to play rock-paper-scissors for the privilege, Sotheby's lost out on the eventual $2.3 million commission by choosing paper.

Crack rock? What?

It was a line from the Simpsons. Lisa and Bart were going to play rock-paper-sissors. Lisa thinks "Poor Bart, he's so predicatable, always throws 'rock' ".
Then Bart thinks, "ha ha, Rock beats everything".. And then Bart loses :laugh:
