Snot for Sale on Ebay. YUK!

    Scarlett Johansson blew her nose on Jay Leno's Tonight show.

    She's selling the tissue full of snot on EBay to raise funds for a charity that helps to feed the less fortunate.

    Search for TISSUE-FROM-SCARLETT-JOHANSSON if you want to see the listing, which is up to over $2,000
    (URL is mega long so I didn't post it)
    Yes, it's certainly a way to get publicity. Even I'm writing about it!

    Anyone else think this is really "OFF"?
    Or am I just being an grumbly old fart?

    P.S. If you're the high bidder, you won't even have to pay for postage.

    Cheers,
    Eric G.

    Eric. I had hoped you were kidding, but here it is. All I can say is, if you buy it, it's your chance to go green.

    Someone please let me know when they're auctioning Pamela Anderson's bathwater.

    @Misha - we didn't need to know that!

    @ rockinjoe:

    Bathwater might be a bit difficult, but if you do some bin diving you should be able to come up with maybe a cottonbud with earwax or something LOL

    I went and read the comments on the Ebay sale.
    Classic.
    The person replying has very high customer service skills in answering them so professionally.

    (I loved the one asking if a DNA certificate would be provided. )
    Laugh!

    From the EBay listing:
    Q:      Hi, I am what you may consider a celebrity tissue enthusiast. Can you please give me more info on the paper itself, before I bid? For instance: brand, color, how many ply, scented or non, did it originate from the studio or from Scarlett's purse. Thanks Mike Vancouver Canada     Dec-19-08
    A:      Hello. The tissue is Kleenex brand facial tissue, 2 ply. It is tissue that originated from the Tonight Show with Jay Leno studio from a plain Kleenex rectangular box that is kept behind Jay's desk on stage. Hope that helps, tissue enthusiast.

    ROFLMAO. Twice.
    Wonder if the person who wrote that question was Shadesbreath?

(I know we have to move with times but this would really finish her if........so to speak) I cannot believe that a) this fiflthy unhygienic object is for sale and b) that someone - who wants to get an accurate history of said filthy object;plus know its' provenance - wants to buy it!......hurl hurl
