Don't catch a cold, buy one on eBay

click to enlargeeBay Item number: 220331665273, Scarlett Johansson's Tissue!
Scarlett claims that she caught the cold from Samuel L. Jackson, and blew the virus along with some snot into this tissue - so Sam Jackson is pretty far removed from this particular item.

At least it's for charity, the proceeds go to USA Harvest. The bid is at $2,280 at this posting. [ADDENDUM] Final bid: $5,300.

From 1951: Disney public service style cartoon about colds (brought to you by Kleenex)

Man, would I be pissed if I bought that and later found out it was a fake.

Some people are just stupid.

Snot - the hottest selling item this year.

(and the supply never runs out)

I watched Jay Leno the night she had The Cold and they came up with this silly idea...she very much had a cold- and she claims she caught it from jackson...but that is still way too much money for snot..period..

( hmmm, now if it was Clooney snot...maybe I would feel different...)

I have been having a lovely vist here today...escaping my subzero hell...been reading about the geraitric Stone and your auto story was amazing and really insightful...and I loved the cat post....thanks for your blogging...)

Ick. As we have all been recovering from some whopping virus, I would not pay for more germs. But donating is a great idea.
