Cornflake In The Shape of Illinois Sales for $1,350.00

What is this world coming to? This cornflake sold on EBay for $1,350.00, plus the man who bought it is going to have someone fly from Texas to Virginia to pick up the cornflake so it won't get damaged in shipping. What the heck????? I will have to admit that the two sisters, ages 15 and 23, that listed the cornflake are genius!!

Monty Kerr, the man who bought the cornflake, owns a trivia website and is going to travel with his cornflake in his traveling museum of pop culture. Okay, how many people are going to pay money to Mr. Kerr to see the cornflake shaped like the State of Illinois? NOT ME that's for sure!!!

How much money do you think Mr. Kerr is going to make off of his cornflake???? I realize that Mr. Kerr earned the money to pay for his cornflake and it's his money to spend, BUT, all I can think about is how many hungry people he could feed if he would of spent $1,350.00 on cornflakes and milk. (plus the flight ticket and fee for someone else to go pick up the cornflake)

How do you take an insurance policy out on a cornflake? Or do you? Does the airline charge for a cornflake to fly? What is the fee? What does the person going to pick up the cornflake charge? What if the girls accidentally break (or eat) the cornflake? Seriously, who is going to pay to see a cornflake? These are the kinds of questions that run through my head. I know I'm weird, but not as weird as Monty Kerr!
