You know why my head hurts?
The election is over and there is still conversation upon conversations about it.
What sent me over the edge was this,
a piece of cardboard,on ebay.
Lots of people have paid ridiculous amounts of money for bizarre things discovered on the Internet. Take William Shatner's kidney stone, for
example, which sold for $25,000 on eBay in 2006. Or an Illinois-shaped cornflake, which was snapped up for more than $1,300. But a rectangular piece
of used cardboard selling for more than $300,000? That seems beyond the point of reason -- even for the wacky world of Internet commerce.
Nevertheless, on Tuesday, that's exactly what we discovered after a user on the social news site Reddit published a post entitled "A piece of
cardboard on eBay has started a huge bidding war." And what a bidding war it was! By early Tuesday evening, the piece of cardboard -- said to be
"shaped a bit like an iPhone 5" -- was selling for about $244,000, and according to CNET, that amount rose to more than $300,000. The item, which
was being sold from London, garnered more than 100 bids.
I have a dog turd and a beer can that if set up just right,looks just like what everybody thinks Jesus looks like.
I could be hitting redneck goldmine territory soon!!!!!!
