Two great masterpieces by Titian are for sale by the Duke of Sutherland. Apparently they're probably worth about ?300,000,000 at auction ($550,000,000?) but he's offering them to two galleries for ?50,000,000 each. So it's making the news here in the UK.

It reminded a friend of mine of this limerick and I just had to share it with you guys because it's a classic, I think.

Titian was mixing rose madder

Suggested coition

So he rushed up the ladder and had 'er.

Now I'm blushing... :icon_rabbit:
