$600 bid for the toast when I checked it.

I'm obviously in the wrong business.

(But then, I've got scruples.)

The bid on the toast is up to $15,500.00! There's no way that can possibly be real...

If so I need to find some stupid shit to sell on E-bay!!!

It's a shame to see people wasting hard earned money on things like that, but then again it's their money and they can blow it on whatever they like.

It's amazing what people will do for a quick buck. It's even more baffeling what people will spent a buck on.

I wish stupid people could not breed... hmmm

Crap.. forget who said it, but I remember a joke about the problem with people being that they are 'easily assembled using unskilled labor with little effort.'

I've been noticing a lot of 'bandwagon' auctions.. More than just people cashing in on a craze, there seems to be a desperate bid for attention by some folks.

$15,400.00 for the toast?! What in the HELL??!!?

I can etch a face better than that into a piece of toast! I might as well give it a shot.

Somebody's even selling Peach Preserves to go with the toast and a "Toast For Dummies" book!

Although I had to laugh I have I agree with Bobcat...a desperate bid for attention...
