“Raging Bull…Not the Movie”

What’s the scoop? Charging Bull of Wall Street for Sale

We all have seen the iconic pictures taken of the Charging Bull statue in Manhattan’s financial district, well now you can buy the statue.

  • Well not actually the real statue but an actual polished stainless-steel replica of the actual charging bull made by the artist of the original piece.

The big picture The replica is up for grabs at $17500 as part of an auction in the legal saga of David Brooks which is nearing its end. Brooks a CEO of a company that supplied Body Armor to the military and law enforcement was found guilty of numerous counts of fraud in 2010 as Marshals will be placing his goods under the hammer today.

  • Some other extravagant items up for auction include gold pens, 22-karat gold necklace of in the shape of the Rolling Stones’ signature tongue, an American flag bracelet encrusted with diamonds, rubies and sapphires just to name a few.

What does all this mean for me?

  • Absolutely nothing but thanks to over eagerness and greed we can get fancy, shiny items for a third of the cost on auction.

The future is looking bright for Medical Marijuana companies as well as the beverage sector looking in to cannabis infused soft drinks.
