Chesapeake sisters selling Illinois-shaped cereal flake online (video)


hamptonroads.com

Forget recession fears, skyrocketing gas prices and falling stocks. Someone, apparently, is willing to pay more than six grand for a corn flake.

Emily McIntire stumbled across a relative fortune while gobbling handfuls of dry cereal earlier this month.

She found a giant corn flake that resembles the state of Illinois, and then offered it for sale on eBay.

As of 5:50 a.m. today, the site showed 85 bids, with a top offer of $201,100 . Verified bids had been only $50 on Sunday.

There's a fortune in your morning cereal box!

Who wants to start the bid for a pillow shaped Malt-O-Meal Frosted Mini Spooner?

(I'm too cheap to buy the name brand stuff.)

SOLD FOR $1,350. How many starving kids could that one flake feed? I guess if you have it spend it.

I beleive in being upfront and honest.

I have often wanted to place an ad which reads: "WANTED: $500,000.00.
I need the money badly and you may not. Have a heart and send the certified check to P.O. Box bla bla bla, city, state.
No strings attached, and will never pay back. God will reward you!


Think that would work? Is that allowed on Ebay?
