San Jose, CA -- Moments after the U.S. military operation that killed Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan, the terrorist mastermind's nose appeared on auction site eBay.
Offered by a seller using the screen name CIAGuy, the nose appears to be in mint condition. Its starting price of 2 cents (U.S.) rose quickly into the millions, as an apparent bidding war broke out. The Obama administration reportedly wants to present the nose to the Smithsonian Institution, while Al Qaeda expressed hopes of reviving its leader by cloning the nose, a la Woody Allen's "Sleeper."
I hope you weren't expecting anything profound.
If I ever need to plead insanity, this blog will provide valuable evidence.
