Title: “Mr. Businessman is happy”
Caption: “I’ve jumped in to the world of stock trading. Why now? I’m not sure. With the economy seeming to be going down the shitter, I guess there are some deals to be had. Not investing a lot as I don’t have much. If I mess this up it means I have to work during my 4th yr of school, eek. On the other hand if I don’t mess it up, I can foresee a 5D MKII in my future :) … or at least break even.. “

    WTF is that rabbit thing?

    It is creepy and awesome at the same time.

  3. Raekwon says:

    Is that a real Banksy? Big fan of his work but seems strange to have it given to The Consumerist.

    • Sure I could agree with you, but then we'd BOTH be wrong. says:


      This is from the pet store in Greenwich Village… I wish I could have seen the rest of the display, but I got there at night. It’s actually an animated rabbit.

      This was in the Window. You should also see the Chicken Nuggets they had – two chicken nuggets, with legs, dipping their “beaks” into a barbecue-sauce container. (It’s in my Flickr photostream)

      Banksy is pure genius!

    Re: the rabbit: Banksy did a popup pet shop in Manhattan recently featuring a bizarre menagerie.

  5. tande04 says:

    That is awesome. I never knew he did 3-D work. That pet shop is the coolest thing I’ve ever seen.

    I stayed at the Stratosphere a few weeks ago, for one night while passing through Vegas, and took a picture exactly like that. Plus, only paid $38 for the room, last minute…

  7. Git Em SteveDave loves this guy--> says:

    Sparks: WHY? Why does all the crap we consume have to be tested on animals first?
    Dr. Quentin Q. Quinn: Because that’s…
    Sparks: Et-hey! A rat doesn’t wear lipstick okay? A rabbit doesn’t use hairspray! A monkey doesn’t need pills, to get ramped up for hot monkey sex! It’s people, man! We’re miserable! So why shouldn’t we try it all first?

  8. Blue387 says:

    I have an idea: have you considered moving the regular Flickr thing to Saturday or Subday instead of on Friday?

  9. mrstu says:

    That’s the most foul, cruel, and bad-tempered rodent you ever set eyes on!
