George Zimmerman is selling his paintings on eBay for $100,000 right after domestic violence charges were dropped.
This literally looks like a word puzzle assigned to a 4th grader as homework.
I'll try to make this quick because I don't want to be thinking the words "George Zimmerman" any more than you do—and I certainly don't want to be thinking about the fact that ol' Zimms might be getting $100,000 on eBay for this monochrome mediocrity. This is coming just days after his pregnant girlfriend dropped charges against him of domestic violence for threatening her with a shotgun (captured in this insane 911 call), accusations which she has apparently rescinded following Zimmerman's actual wife filing for divorce in September, according to MyNews13. The sale's authenticity was also confirmed to MyNews13 by Zimmerman's brother Robert.
Did he ask for $100,000? No, @therealGeorgeZ (his eBay handle) asked for $50 (plus $40 for shipping). Somehow, $100,000 (well, $99,966) is what the free market decided an original Zimmerman was worth. The auction doesn't close for three more days, though, so maybe it will still go up. Here's what Zimmerman had to say about the work:
"First hand painted artwork by me, George Zimmerman. Everyone has been asking what I have been doing with myself. I found a creative, way to express myself, my emotions and the symbols that represent my experiences. My art work allows me to reflect, providing a therapeutic outlet and allows me to remain indoors :-) I hope you enjoy owning this piece as much as I enjoyed creating it. Your friend, George Zimmerman."
I, for one, have not been asking myself or anyone else what George Zimmerman has been doing with himself, but fine. Maybe other people have pressing questions for George:
Is it possible that George has been patrolling his questions and eliminating unwanted ones?
Before we all freak out too much (a fair amount is warranted), Z-man is not going to be rich. He's apparently flat broke and $2.5 million in debt (mostly legal fees which may get paid back). Still, he also might make more than most of us will ever make in a year from painting the same kind of word game (answer: one nation under God) that my family gives to all the younger cousins at Thanksgiving. I may not know art, but I know what I can't fucking stand.
