Jeff Bezos, the richest man in the world, is worth an estimated net worth of $193 billion. The Mona Lisa, one of the most famous paintings of all time, is worth an estimated $867 million. Therefore, according to the internet, the logical conclusion is that Jeff Bezos should buy and eat the Mona Lisa.
The petition, hosted on change.org, was started a year ago by a Kane Powell. It’s only recently, though, that the petition has seen a considerable increase in momentum, reaching 5,000 supporters 12 hours ago.
The petition’s description eloquently states the facts: “Nobody has eaten the mona lisa and we feel jeff bezos needs to take a stand and make this happen.”
Really, that statement isn’t incorrect.
Of the many thousands of backers, some chose to leave comments showing their support.

“This is the most important petition in modern times. Jeff Bezos needs to eat the Mona Lisa to save the world”-Abhishek Ranjit
Considering the absurd amount of wealth that people like Jeff Bezos have access to, sometimes it’s good to be reminded of the almost-illegal ridiculous things such power is capable of achieving.
I guess the question remains- if Jeff Bezos chose to buy and eat the Mona Lisa, could anyone even stop him?
