you know how fucking depressing that is....that people would rather have a fried piece of novelty vegetable, than help some homeless people out. 275 grand is ridiculous....do you know how many starving africans you could feed with that amount of money....do you know how many starving AMERICANS you could feed with that. Why do I dislike people again....oh yea.

Things like this make me lose even more faith in humanity. People are just fucking stupid, there's no other reason for that.

Ah... I just took a closer look at the description:
McDonald’s® “Lincoln Fry” – actual prop from TV
This auction is for one “Lincoln Fry” prop. Prop was created for DDB Chicago’s production of McDonald’s “Lincoln Fry” television and internet advertisements. This Lincoln Fry prop is crafted from polyurethane and stands approximately 4 inches tall. It forms a base at one end and a partial bust of President Abraham Lincoln at the other. “Lincoln Fry” is not edible.

Upon auction close, Buyer will be notified via email. Shipping cost to be paid by Seller. The final bid amount will be donated by Seller to Ronald McDonald House Charities®. Purchase by Buyer is not tax deductible.

Serious bidders only. If you have any questions, please ask before bidding. Payment is to be made within 7 days of auction close.
I guess as long as the money's going to a good cause it's okay.... but that's still a hell of a lot of money to pay for a french fry prop... and it's not even tax deductible, even though the money's going to charity! WTF?
