STRAIGHT UP MYSTERY CHIP

Recommended Posts

ROFL!!! A local radio station (MIX 102.9) has found, in a bag of potato chips, a chip that looks just like a cowboy boot. They are auctioning it on ebay and any money will go to charity.

Mystery Chip

This is just too funny (and out of my price range, too). Had to share, though.

Because it's such a random article to be found on ebay

only those that know about it a gonna find it (i.e. listeners)

Guess that's what they don't specify it in the listing. Maybe.

Actually the easy way would be to carve a potato into boot shaped slices first, then fry them into chips. Let's see...1 potato= about 20 chips I guess, 20x$1,500 :wacko::blink:::P:

You really know society is going downhill when someone pays $1230 for a single potato chip. It's nice they did it for charity, but what nutwit would bid on the darned thing?

A rich nutwit that believes in charitable causes apparently.

I think this person (if they pay) is on the uphill side of society.

Well then instead of bidding on it why not write a check to a charity instead?

You've been into the Febreeze again, haven't you?

Why not bid on the chip? What have potato chips done to you? :rock:

The money "is" going to go to a charity regardless if the

bidder wrote "Pay To Charity" or the radio station

hands it over personally. Who's to say the buyer

doesn't contribute to charitable causes on a yearly

basis, too? The only difference is the radio station picks

a random worthy "local" charity instead of the buyer of the chip

and gets their listening audience in on the cause by making it fun, too.

It's all good and everybody wins. Except maybe the chip .. which is

sold into into some bizarre form of starchy-fried slavery.

*cue eerie music*

I do understand the whole concept behind bidding on the chip. No need to flame me or insult me, thanks.

 

Yes I know that the money goes to Charity no matter what. But to me it seems odd that they need to bid on a potato chip in order to do it. They would raise a lot more money for this same charity if they auctioned different items that would actually last. I'm sure a lot of people looked at a potato chip being auctoned and just laughed and moved on. But if they put a pair of concert tickets up there or a certificate for a free dinner for two to some restaurant, I bet that would have received a lot higher bids and they would have made more money for the charity they were doing this for.

 

Knowing it was for Charity I might have bid on it if I actually had an ebay account. But seeing it was a potato chip, I very well may have had a good laugh at the expense of this radio station before placing a bid on it.
