LOL, Ebay auctioning Blaines underwear :)

Postby Robert Allen » October 24th, 2003, 9:29 am

Ok, I actally find this funny and am posting the link with the hope that others do as well. It is perhaps a good commentary on the whole Blaine phenomena and the accompanying hue and cry.

Yes it's the marquee inside the castle. I can't tell who was performing though :) .

(I suspect this auction is an example of PhotoShop in action, but it's inspired IMHO.)

Examining the Blaine6.jpg (picture in front of the curtain) and the Blain8.jpg (picture in front of the marquee), the images of the guy holding up the underwear do appear to be mirror images (although the image in front of the marquee, the guy is slightly resized horizontally).

This has to be a legitimate auction because I'm positive that J. Shizzman Biology Labs and BFA & Associates Management, Inc. are authentic businesses.

More Blaine satire is on this site:

People have contests to see who can create the funniest fake pictures. Note: Some immature humor.

(It's more honest than saying "adult humor!")

Pictures definitely faked because according to the Castle website, Amos Levkovitch hasn't appeared at the Castle since Blaine was released. That along with Oliver's observations puts a serious doubt in the legitimacy of this auction. The worse part is the claim that the money is going to Make-a-Wish Foundation.

Ebay has strict rules against the buying and selling of soiled undergarments. DON"T ask how I know. I just do. OK! (see their rules regarding questionable items.)

Also, the virgin radio station in Engalund was plahing a song yesterday parodying the Blaine stunt. Those with internet radio may be able to find it.
