I read, probably on the Wikipedia, that Salvador Dali would write checks and then do amazing little drawings on the backs of them, because he knew nobody would ever dare cash a check that was a Salvador Dali drawing.

That story is probably not as awesome as the spider picture story, though.

That's like that old SNL sketch where Jon Lovtiz as Picasso sits in a cafe and pays for everything with the most inconsequential of doodles

Well it's 1:1.5439 (at this very moment) so that's not terrible... I mean, $15,439 isn't a very friendly number.
