At least it wasn’t the Virgin Mary

CNN says:

CHICAGO, Illinois (AP) — Two sisters from Virginia sold their Illinois-shaped cornflake on eBay Friday night for $1,350.

"We were biting our nails all the way up to the finish, seeing what would happen," said Melissa McIntire, 23. "There’s a lot of relief involved."

I suppose if you’re half-blind – or half-witted – the cornflake in question might look like the state of Illinois.

But anyone who’d pay $1,350 for the thing is a fool.

    As ridiculous as that amount is, the corn flake in question had been offered on E-bay previously, and the bid was up to over $200,000. That’s not a typo – yes, over $200,000. Per the Tribune, E-Bay pulled it because they don’t allow you to sell food. So the girls resubmitted it, this time offering a ‘coupon’ that could be used to obtain said cornflake. Apparently the previous bidders came to their senses. Or, perhaps sobered up. Whatever…
