Which Would You Buy - The Cosmopolitan or a Popeye sculpture?

Two well-heeled investors made two ginormous purchases this week, both of them hoping that time and market conditions would make their incredibly shiny investments turn green.

Private equity investment firm Blackstone spent $1.76 billion dollars to buy the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas from Deutsche Bank. Meanwhile, up the street, Steve Wynn plunked down $28 million dollars to purchase a sculpture of Popeye by artist Jeff Koons at Sotheby's auction house.

Assuming you're the one with the cash looking to make the bigger investment score... which one would you buy The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas or Popeye?

Oh... and the winner of last week's poll is PH Spent Power Washing Budget On Buying Itself From Itself.
