Genevieve wrote yesterday about the noxious news that notorious pharma-douche and all around bawbag (the Scottish have the best words), Martin Shkreli, has been revealed as the purchaser of the sole copy of the Wu-Tang Clan’s latest, one-off album, Once Upon A Time in Shaolin.

After RZA and the group were made aware of Shkreli’s Lex Luthor-like drug price fixing they donated some of the proceeds to charity.

But the best part of the whole story is the stipulation in the album’s contract:

In case you can’t read that, it says:
The buying party also agrees that, at any time during the stipulated 88 year period, the seller may legally plan and attempt to execute one (1) heist or caper to steal back Once Upon A Time In Shaolin, which, if successful, would return all ownership rights to the seller. Said heist or caper can only be undertaken by currently active members of the Wu-Tang Clan and/or actor Bill Murray, with no legal repercussions

So, the Wu-Tang Clan team up with Bill Murray to steal their own album back from Martin Shkreli’s presumably mirror-filled penthouse?

Start making this movie now.
