Jeff Koons's Balloon Dog

This popular sculpture would be a controversial choice. Many in the hedge fund industry know who displays one of these in his driveway. For those who don’t get out enough and/or don't read "Vanity Fair," this person’s last name rhymes with crowin’ and goin’. Initials of his firm rhyme with “thwack.” You get the picture. If not, you're fired.
