So this dyslexic guy walks into a bra …

You might have noted that today is April 1, also known as April Fool’s Day.

No foolin': Thirty-five grand worth of mouse.That accounts for the headline above.

But we’re not foolin’ about the picture. Artdaily reports here that this 1932 poster of Mickey Mouse, when he was a mere mouseling only 4 years old, pulled in $35,850 in a recent Heritage Auctions sale of vintage movie posters. Overall, the auction notched $1.5 million in sales, which also included a 1953 Paramount half-sheet for The War of the Worlds and a primo 1938 Boris Karloff Frankenstein.

Here at Art Scatter World Headquarters we can think of other ways to drop 35 grand — a term or two of college tuition for one of the Large Smelly Boys, for instance. But we admire the passion that drives a collector to such extremes.

If the folks at Disney will pardon the expression, that’s a mighty mouse.

One question: Is it OK to tack it to the bedroom wall?
