No.

If you want to talk about insane auctions, these auctions are truly insane.

The person auctioning these Cheetoz is obviously insane, but the people looking at them aren't.  These auctions hardly have any bids on them - so there's hope for the world.

Remember that Las Vegas Casino who bought a "virgin Mary" 10 years old already eaten cheese sandwich AND a cane who "had" the ghost spirit of its proprietary ;)

In a sense the world has gone totally crazy *wacko*

I think I've heard enough!  But if the link to the auction still exists you could post that.  It would definitely be more insane than the auction I've shared!

Here are a couple insane examples:

Beckham ball 28,000  http://www.cnn.com/2...kham/index.html

T-Rex fossil nearly 100,000$  http://www.cnn.com/2...tion/index.html

Concorde "nose" 500,000$  http://www.cnn.com/2...tion/index.html

I'll find this sandwich story ;)

EDIT: here it goes
Virgin mary sandwich 28,000$  http://news.bbc.co.u...cas/4034787.stm

Ghost cane 65,000$  http://www.msnbc.msn...51230/?gt1=5855

Enjoy ;)

I guess that its just a stupid trend. Once there is a megablock buying such an item 28,000$ it brings hope to a lot of other megablocks in search of quick money *wacko*

But imagine the person who auctioned toast...  Winning that much money could have potential psychological effect on them. Every time they make toast they must look at it from all angles and lighting to see if it resembled something.

Yes, lets all see how many toast images we can create and auction on eBay, then with the profits we can buy more LEGO.

Well the sandwich does look like a woman. Not that I know what the virgin mary looks like, but I don't think it looks like her... maybe Marlene Dietrich, perhaps.

And now for my molarlistic post of year...

With all the famine and poverty in the world how does someone/some organisation have the nerve to spend $28,000 of a slice toast?  Its unjustifiable!

Molarlistic?  Something to do with teeth? :P
