Default When the phrase "that sh*t's expensive" is literal...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Artist%27s_Shit

Quote:
A tin was sold for 124,000 at Sotheby's on May 23, 2007; in October 2008 tin 83 was offered for sale at Sotheby's with an estimate of 5070,000. It sold for 97,250. On October 16, 2015, tin 54 was sold at Christies for 182,500. In August 2016, at an art auction in Milan, one of the tins sold for a new world record of 275,000, including auction fees. The tins were originally to be valued according to their equivalent weight in gold $37 each in 1961 with the price fluctuating according to the market.
124,000 = approx $139,283

5070,000 = approx $65,030.25 to $91,042.35

97,250 = approx $126,483.84

182,500 = approx $237,360.41

275,000 = approx $308,893.75

For cans of sh*t...

Maybe I can get six figures for a work called "Jizz in a jar".

Why is it when this guy offers his poop for sale, he gets hundreds of thousands of dollars for it, and when I do the same exact thing, I get arrested?

Because you didn't classify yours as "art".

Because apparently crapping in a tin can and sealing it is "art".
