The facts as we know them:

■ A self-portrait of Frida Kahlo sold for
$34.9 million at Sotheby’s on Tuesday night.

■ I’m looking at two portraits of Frida
on the easel in our living room.

■ Downside: They may or may not have been painted by her.

■ Upside: No annoying Diego painted on her forehead.

of the “other” Frida portrait,

“Frida is now on the wish list of collectors who collect
great masterpieces of modern art,” says Brooke Lampley,
Sotheby’s chairman. Surely there’s a collector on your list
who wants a masterpiece? Or an extremely old cupcake?

“There are probably less than 20 to 30 paintings
of hers on the market,”
says Gregorio Lake, former director of the Museum
of Latin American Art in California.
The story doesn’t mention how many cupcake paintings there are
in the world, but there can’t be too many.
Difficult to paint a cupcake without eating it first.

      petrified cupcake would never make it through customs.

      “Third, concerning Customs in Ecuador, their primary goal is to prevent drugs, weapons, explosive materials, and illegal products from entering Ecuador. The list of products that are considered illegal would be pointless to include here considering that it’s subject to change anytime.”
