Ridiculous eBay Auction Alert: $4,000 Paula Deen Painting
Posted by Jillian Madison

Sadly, this is not a joke. A Savannah artist is currently asking $3,844 for this painting (via eBay). Try to contain your shock and horror, but there have not been any bids yet.

According to the artist’s description: “THIS AUCTION IS FOR HAND PAINTED ORIGINAL OIL PAINTING….PAINTED BY ME , GREGORY MYRICK ,THE FAMOUS ARTIST.”

Ohhhh. THAT Gregory Myrick!  I was confused. I was thinking of ANOTHER Gregory Myrick. Thank God he cleared that up.

Apparently, Gregory is so famous that he has 10 whole friends on MySpace, where he refers to himself as “a legend in the city of Savannah, Georgia as well as all over the world!” (Who does this guy think he is? Madonna?)

Sure the painting is nice, and he even included Captain Santa Claus driving a red Rolls Royce, but it’s “$20 nice” – not “6 months of rent money” nice. Big difference. And by the way, who applied Paula Deen’s rouge? Bozo the clown?

If you’re interested in this $4,000 painting, hurry! The auction only has 12 hours left. And once you’re done bidding, please stop by the drug store and pick up some condoms. I have a sneaking suspicion you probably shouldn’t be breeding.

(Thanks for the tip, Alex!)

    As of right now, there has been one offer (dollar amount unknown) that has been declined. Must have been your $20 offer.

      I have seen this one on eBay for as low as $5.95, and none as nearly as high as $4,000. If so, the artist is very well known, has many paintings of the city which are of great quality. He has been painting for over 27 years! Yes, he is Gregory Myrick! Thank you!

      • WilesWales@gmail.com says:

        I LOVE Paula Deen! I wish I could meet her! I’ve watched her program from the very beginning, have read her biography, and she is a person to be looked up to and admired. She is Southern through and through. I know not only by her accounts and things, but only a REAL Southerner can spot another. This woman should be in the “real” history books!

  2. Gregg says:

    Don’t miss this rare opportunity to own an original work by the Picasso of the Trailer Park, Gregory Myrick!

  3. Scruffy says:

    That ain’t Paula Deen, she’s not chubby and orange. That woman looks like a prototypical realtor with a slice of cake.

    And now Paula will probably license limited edition prints of herself because she’s a real life Krusty the Clown or Yogurt (some of you will get that reference) when it comes to merchandising.

  4. Syd says:

    Oh, those Savannah queens…

  5. Alex says:

    Why is she eating a slice of coconut cake in the middle of the road in front of her restaurant?

  6. Gypsy says:

    The creep factor is WAY too high in that painting. And that might be Paula (big emphasis on the “might”) IF she were 25 years younger and 80 lbs. lighter.

  7. samuel jackson says:

    OH….MY….God.

  8. samuel jackson says:

    Oh, by the way, is that Capt Michael driving the Rolls???

    • samuel jackson says:

      Never mind, I guess it is. Should read what Jillian has to say before I think I’ve come up with something witty.

  9. Lana says:

    I just want to know why Pauler is holding a little girl in a yellow dress on the handle of her fork?

    BTW, the painting is TOTALLY worth $4000 … in somebody’s fantasy world ….

  10. Sandra Lee's Liver says:

    Pauler Deen looks like a cross between Betty Crocker and Hillary Clinton in this painting.

  11. Teague says:

    From the way he painted her I’m guessing that this is the same person who does her Photoshop work. (You know the pictures that attempt to make her look less wrinkled that a seventeen year old, but only serve to make her even more creepy.)

    • Teague says:

      Couldn’t resist have a look on EBay. Love the following quote on the page form the ‘world famous artist’.

      “I’M SEEKING TV-MEDIA EXPOSURE ,ART REVIEWS ,PHILANTHROPISTS,COLLECTORS , ADVERTISING & MARKETING,AUCTIONS,GALLERIES,AND ART AGENTS WHO WOULD BE INTERESTED IN REPRESENTING AND MARKETING MY ART…..I HAVE 469 ORIGINAL PAINTINGS…”

  12. Liz says:

    Why is there a wedding just happening the middle of the street?

  13. toolshed says:

    No offense but I wouldn’t say that is 20 cents nice. eww

  14. Bacchus says:

    “THIS AUCTION IS FOR HAND PAINTED ORIGINAL OIL PAINTING….PAINTED BY ME , GREGORY MYRICK ,THE FAMOUS ARTIST.”

    IMO, if you have to tell people you are famous, you aren’t.

  15. mina says:

    It says best offer. I want to see someone offer 5 cents for that thing.

  16. CherryRose says:

    As bad as it is, I’d actually like to see a larger photo for more detail.

    • cloverleaf says:

      Me, too, CR! I want to see if the groom is son, Jamie. I’m guessing the painting is a *cough* “highlights of happy events” from Paula’s “real” life. :)

      Unbelievably enough, now I want a slice of coconut cake! I’m so ashamed! ;)

      • Judith says:

        Now, now Clover,”pats shoulder” it’s alright, you’ll be fine in a few minutes, no need to be ashamed, the evil old woman just put an evil spell on you.

      • cloverleaf says:

        Hee hee! Well, maybe I’ll make another voodoo doll…….. ;)

    • CherryRose says:

      Where’s Bobby? ;)

  17. Lizzie says:

    Are you kidding? That is absolutely one of the worst paintings I’ve ever seen.

  18. Teague says:

    The kind of thing you’d expect to find on black velvet.

  19. Kenneth says:

    I’m buying it. I’m going to hang it up next to my Dale Earnhardt commemorative plates.

  20. Di says:

    Simply unbelievable.

    But I think Captain Santa would definitely look much more at home behind THIS Rolls –

  21. BOO says:

    Y’all is that a Dixie paperplate that cake is on?

  22. KatW says:

    You have got to be kidding. Pauler will probably purchase this monstrosity to hang in her restaurant.

    In the event you’re thinking $3,844 is a wee bit steep for your bank account, Gregory also has available for purchase a shitload of lithographs of the painting for only $19.99 each.

  23. byrdie says:

    Pretty dang expensive for a dart board.

  24. Sandra Lee's Liver says:

    Hopefully, someone will be smart enough to sell this with the Rachael Ray on the Half-Shell painting from a few months back so you can have a set to proudly display in your…well…you can display it somewhere.

  25. Teague says:

    A lot of people have commented and questioned about Paula being depicted eating cake in the middle of the road. Considering what we know she has done in the middle of the road before we should be grateful that that is what the ‘artist’ chose to depict…Unless he is doing a before and after series.

  26. Spatuler says:

    So this is what the Rodeo Clown College reception looks like in Savannah, GA. I’ve always wondered.

  27. HeWhoseNameMustNotBeSpoken says:

    I think that it’s actually Taylor Hicks in drag. Also, does the scat on the street belong to Paula or that horse?

  28. beth says:

    don’t know if it causes anyone “undue” happiness (or nausea, whatevs), BUT, i just found a link in ebay via our fab arteest friend here, that you can buy an autographed copy of this amazing oil painting for the low, low price of $19.99. FREE SHIPPING, TOO!

    better act fast, y’all!

  29. Barb says:

    Ah ha hah a hah ahahaha. Too funny!!!!

  30. Diane says:

    “I have a sneaking suspicion you probably shouldn’t be breeding.”
    Best laugh all day!

    BTW, if you have to refer to YOURSELF as a legend…you ain’t one.

  31. Ryoko says:

    Where are you paying $600 a month for rent?
