This is what I call lucking out.

I Accidentally Bought a Banksy in 2003

So I kept my Banksy around, and even paid serious bucks ($250!) to get it framed properly. I joined Twitter, and made it my avatar, because surely that would help me sell it. Over the past five years, I have regularly made attempts to track down someone who might be able to at least walk me through what you do in this scenario. So far, Iā€™ve had no luck.

Very nice. I had my own bit of Banksy-related good fortune back in 2006 when I got a couple of copies of the Banksy Paris Hilton prank cd before HMV twigged and pulled them from shelves. The photos I posted on Flickr the same day went global, and are pretty much the only ones that still show up in a Google image search. I toyed with selling one of them, but Paris Hilton's record label decided to use their muscle (and a spurious claim of copyright violation) to put paid to any eBay listings.
