What Tony Stewart may be lacking in 2010 success he is sure making up for in the boombastic swag department. Tony Stewart is auctioning off a painting entitle “A Man and His Monkey.” No, this isn’t some fancy-dancy Italian piece of abstract impressionism. Yes, Tony has his clothes on the entire time.
The one-of-a-kind oil painting features Stwart alongside his former pet monkey Mojo. Stewart had the little guy for years. In 2008, he gave the pet to the Lousiville Zoo back in 2008 after Mojo started getting a wee bit aggressive. Wonder where Mojo got that from? This is a mystery to me.
Stewart signed the paining, which fans can bid on from June 4 through June 14. Proceeds from the painting and a bunch of other cool stuff benefits the Tony Stewart Foundation, which donates funds to help care for critically ill children, drivers injured in motorsports activities and other charitable organizations that help animals. If that’s not enough reason to bid at this appropriately placed link, here’s a video from Whopper Man himself. This puts Martin Truex clam chowder and Dale Jr. moonshine dispensers to shame.
