Ok, a piece of art by Gustav Klimt known as the portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer just became the most expensive piece art sold ever, fetching 135 million dollars.
Now, make some joke about all the other things you could think to do with 135 million dollars BESIDES buying some dumb painting.
Then say that the painting was purchased by "cosmetics magnet" Ronald S. Lauder (as in Estee Lauder) for the sum, but all the parameters (be sure to use that word) of the deal have been kept relatively secret.
An interesting fact about the portrait is that it was one of five Klimt paintings to be seized by the Nazis during World War II.
