The other day, someone put a listing on E-bay claiming the winning bidder could get the name of the most mysterious street artist of all time – Banksy.  The seller apparently had tax records that pinpointed the real name of Banksy.  He promised nothing more than Banksy’s real name and he promised it was 100% legitimate.  The bidding had reached a staggering $999,999 before E-bay pulled the auction.  This means that for the time being, we’ll all have to refer to the elusive artist by this name:  Banksy.  In other Banksy news, keep your fingers crossed that his film “Exit Through The Gift Shop” gets nominated and wins best Documentary at the Oscars.  What a spectacle that will be!
