The Warhol portrait is one of a pair

New York - The Charlie's Angels star always knew the painting was a cheap copy an expert art witness told a packed court hearing this Friday, "much like the, uh, subject matter herself, Your Honor."

Valued at around $12million the portrait belongs to the deceased actress' former partner Ryan O'Neal and is said to be one of a pair that Warhol executed during a decidedly downmarket phase in his career.

This week it's been playing center stage in a lawsuit brought by a Texan university that's claiming ownership under the terms of the late actress' will that bequeathed her entire art collection to 'for the good of the nation' in a trust set up by the Bush Hellfire Family Blind Truss and operated by the university.

The lawsuit also sees O'Neal countersuing what he describes as a ''predatory' attempt to deprive him of one of his very few cherished possessions of his beloved Farrah, who some movie buffs reckoned was a lowdown ho.

If proven a forgery the painting will, of course, be worth exactly nothing apart from a few million dollars in curiosity value as a bit of Fawcett memorabilia whose fan base consists of a couple dozen diehard Charlie's Angels freaks and an eBay opportunist curios seller somewhere near Sheboygan.

Expect the lawsuit to drag on a few more million dollars worth of attorney time, maybe concluding sometime before Christmas.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
