I wish I could count the number of times I've been aimlessly clicking through Craigslist posts looking for cheap used items and have accidentally tripped and spent $18,000-$20,000 on a gold-plated lion statue that looks remarkably like a tiger. I mean, just last week I bought two in a row because it had slipped my mind that I had paid the equivalent of a Toyota Camry already that day for some random member of the Panthera genus. (Then there was the time that I wasn't paying attention and I accidentally paid $20,000 for a member of the Pantera family; I ended up having to return Phil Anselmo and pay a restocking fee, but I'm not allowed to talk about that dark, dark time.)
The text of this ad says it's a "beautiful exhibit." Does this person actually think these lions are alive, and are just content to sun themselves under the glass table top all day?
