Back in October, we shared with you a delightful painting of NBA legend Larry Bird having a milkshake with Skeletor, the bad guy from ‘He-Man and the Masters of the Universe.’ We couldn’t figure out why it existed. We still can’t, but we’ve got some good news: now the painting can be yours. Sort of.Turns out artist Jake Fyfe is responsible for the masterpiece, and he’s whipped up a screen-printed version available for sale on his website.

YEP.I’m going to buy both of these, and they’re going to be the only things in my house.[via Jason Fyfe]
