A couple of nights ago Conan O'Brian gave away bags of 30 McCain Dolls to the 200 members of the audience. Tonight, Conan brought this up again, mentioning that he was slightly offended to see that one of these, inevitably (what was he expecting?), showing up on eBay. The entire bag, unopened.
I was curious to see how much this thing was going for, and so I went to eBay to check this out. When I got there, it was at $38, which I thought, was reasonable.
I refreshed, literally one minute(!) later, and it was already at $250. I was like, 'seriously?' at the time, but I'll believe it that people would spend that much for a collector's item (if it even qualifies as that?), and obviously the mention on the show tonight brought other curious people like me to the auction page.
Ok. Ten minutes later I refresh again, and it's at $20,000. Twenty THOUSAND dollars. Are you freakin' kidding me??Now, it is at $10,000,100
, and I'm thinking that this must be a joke. Please. Someone tell me this is a joke.
For the love of all that is good in this world, TELL ME THIS IS A JOKE.
ETA: US $99,999,999.00 ???? Is that even legit? Damn, I'd totally bid on this save for that cursed $3.99 shipping...
ETA2: I imagine eBay will disqualify this. Oh anonymity and the Internet.
