Um.
$420.00.

Why?

Velvet pants worn by Christ!Spike? Oz's bass? Those made sense. What am I missing here?

Christ!Spike. Snerk.

Yeah. I'd pay. Um. 10$. Maybe. If there was still a burger in it. Er. I mean, if there were a *fresh* burger in it.

Okay. That's just insane.

I am a wrong and evil person for wishing they'd put JM's 'sock' up for auction, right?

Completely irredeemable.

We can party amidst the fire and brimestone ;)

Is it just me, or when you scroll down does the writing on the wrapper get bigger? Or am I being optical illusioned?

But yeah, most of that stuff has gone for absured prices.

I think it's the perspectove of the shot, though it certainly gets easier to read.

I just want Spike's pants. Is that too much to ask?

No way is it too much to ask. He wears lots of pants. They should *sell* his pants, not auction them. They should sell them for $10. He shoud also come to every purchaser's house and offer to do them favors. And we don't have to pay for those favors, he just does them. He's giving back the fans.

If I ran Ebay...

Burger wrapper.


Really, now.

I seem to be saying this a lot lately, but I could not make this shit up.

The world is a scary place!

I'm trying to figure out how to keep my utilities on and someone has $420 to buy a DM wrapper?

Sigh.

Some people just have too much money....and if you know of any that want to help keep my lights on let me know.

:D

If I did, they'd be paying my Visa bill.... ;-)

That's one expensive burger

Doublemeat Palace *burger wrapper*.
OMG, Mad Poetess, ... it'll probably reach $1000 before bidding ends :-) FOX seems to be putting everything up for auction -- this can go on forever. I bet we'll even see the plastic knives and forks from the lunch room up for auction at some point ...

It's moments like this when I get the need for statements like Fandom Is Fucking Funny. Oy.

$420.00? American dollars? Really?

Fucked. The world is fucked.

Final sale: 477$

And the saddest part is that the money isn't even going to charity. It's going straight into Fox's pockets. Ridiculous!

mpoetess

2003-06-10 06:28 am (UTC) (Link)

But, y'know.... makes me feel less guilty for the fanfic. Those fans who are paying 5,000 times the actual value of random flotsam that FOX owns? They're paying for my slash. Uh huh. That's it.

and what would you do with it? Frame it? Wrap a BigMac in it? What? 400$. gheez

Re: thought you'd like that one

mpoetess

2003-06-10 06:28 am (UTC) (Link)

Wrap every Big Mac I ever get for the rest of my life (which will be 0, since I hate Big Macs, but work with me) in it.

Hrm.

Maybe it was used as something *other* than a wrapper - perhaps after the infamous DMP Wall scene? Like, I dunno... a tissue?

Ew... I just grossed myself out. Forget I said that. :P

Huh. $400+ for a burger wrapper, and I'll bet they had at least 500 of them printed up.

[pause to do calculations]

Obviously, I'm in the wrong business.

mpoetess

2003-06-10 06:29 am (UTC) (Link)

I doubt they're selling 500 of them, though. They're not stupid enough to glut the market, even on an obviously insane item like this one. ;-)
