Charles claims he always knew he had it in him

LOS ANGELES - British architect Richard Rogers has been awarded the 2007 Pritzker Prize, the profession's highest honor. Immediately after winning the award - a $100,000 (US) grant and a bronze medallion - he put it up for sale on a classified ads website.

When asked about his actions Rogers responded, "People asked me back in 1999 when Sir Norman Foster won the Pritzker what I would do with it if I won. As far as I can remember I always promised to put it up for auction on the web."

As of press time his advertisement still reads:

    Pritzker Prize... barely used... asking 75,000 euro (or best offer).

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