Capitalist Man

The New York Post has an interview with the performance artist who calls himself "Capitalist Man." His gimmick is that he carries around a see-through briefcase, which he claims contains $500,000 in hundred-dollar bills, and he's trying to find someone willing to buy it for a million dollars.

The price tag, he says, is "$500,000 for the cash, $500,000 for the concept." Any interested buyer gets to examine the bills before purchase.

Capitalist Man says that if someone does buy his briefcase full of money, his profit will go entirely to charity. But so far, he has no takers.

Seems like it’s only a matter of time before someone conks him over the head and helps themselves to his cash.

Yes, I feel sure he will find a "taker." And his bodyguard will be "taken" to the morgue, as well.

By the way, I can let you have an acrylic briefcase for $400k. Add your own $500k, and you make $100k, easy!

Forget the flimsy acrylic briefcase! For $390K, I can get you a bulletproof glass case with a secure combination lock. The thieves won't be able to open it without setting the money on fire. It's more secure than any bank account!

The best thing is to give me the money, and I'll write you a check for the full amount. If the check is lost or stolen, I can put a stop-payment notice on it.

Your money will be safe with me! Safe! Safe, I tell you! Bwahaha!
