Everyone has seen this picture of Kanye West kissing Kim Kardashian. The picture was taken taken by Getty photographer Jason Meritt. It was at the Grammys. Then soon after that, the talented illustrator Jen Lewis decided to make it super funny.

It was basically meme gold by then. Then a year went by, and suddenly, we saw a huge mural of the Kanyes painted on a wall in Sydney by graffiti artist Scott Marsh.
It was still cool, up until Marsh announced that he was selling it for $100,000.
Did Kanye wanted it?
Marsh was also selling a smaller version for $40.

When I watched Field of Dreams, the quote I left that movie with was "If you build it they will come." Once the baseball field was built, the ghosts found it. When the World Wide Web was new, that was fairly true. Since the mid-1990's, there has been tremendous and explosive growth in the web. Consider for a moment: there are an estimated 612 million websites in the world, but only 185 million websites are active according to TechLogon.com. Read more
