    You've got to be kidding me.:bang: THe current bid is now $510!!!!! Am I missing something here? I've got to hand it to some people for knowing how to make a buck. I just don't understand the ones that are bidding on it. They obviously have too much money on their hands.

    That casino will probably be the winning bidder...anyone know which one I mean? Funny, for all the money they spend on stupid things like this (don't know if they are involved), I can't remember their name! LOL

    I have run across food items that look like things, but never thought to try and sell them on ebay. :doh:

    Please don't send the men in white! Seriously though, this person is going to make money on this corn flake? Unbelievable.

    Its up to 1,325 now. That is insane. I don't even think it looks like Illinois. I am going to pay closer attention to my cereal from now on.

    I'm not an Ebayer but don't people run up the cost for things and then back out? I can't imagine anyone actually paying anything for this... :doh:

    ETA - I don't see much of a resemblance and who the heck searches through their cereal piece by piece looking for something like that??? :eek:

    Yeah... when one of the Dukes of Hazzard cars was put up for auction by John Schneider, someone made bogus bids and sent the price skyrocketing to around 10mil... which made it the highest bid ever on Ebay. Once the auction was over, the bidder never made good on their bid.

    I'm usually half asleep when I eat breakfast so sorting through pieces of cereal to look for certain shapes is the last thing I'm thinking of. :D

    That lady probably by accident broke the corn flake when taking pictures. Now, it's gonna look like some religous figure or something.
