Lauderhill's Joel Waul cashes in on his record-setting rubber band ball | Miami New Times

It's a record: The rubber band ball has been sold for an undisclosed fee. The year-old waved off his 6ft 7in masterpiece yesterday as a crane hauled its 9,lb bulk from his home in Lauderhill, Florida, to a museum, having sold it for an undisclosed sum.
