    have you guys heard about the lincoln fry? it's a mcdonals fry that looks like abaraham lincoln. its so stupid that people actually make websites about such stupid things, there was a commercial on tv too. i wish stuff like this would happen to me, whoever got it is auctioning it and right now its at 225,000 us dollars.

    I just saw the commercial for it (during the Super Bowl.) So lame in my opinion. People just trying to do anything they can to make money. People should try being more creative. Like the guy that auctioned off advertising space on his forehead for a month, and got $33,000.

    apparently there's like 30 or 40 of them. the sellers claim that mcdonalds manufactures the "lincoln fry" on purpose and distributes them throughout the world. what a load of crap.

    i bet whoever buys it already knows how stupid they are. a lot of people today just want it for attention. i can never think of wasting that much money. i feel guilty when i waste five bucks, imagine two million.

    what are you talking about? you haven't disagreed with anything anyone has said. If you would have read my post from above:
    So we ALREADY knew it was fake, and just because the ONE seller is giving his money to Ronald McDonald doesn't mean that the other jackasses out there selling them are going to.

    I love a good cause. Mine is the American Cancer Society, (since I lost my dad to cancer,) and the Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League. But if anyone catches me paying $300,000 for a plastic French fry, no matter what the cause, please just shoot me. Thanks!
