Eureka!!! Can I Make A Few Thousand Dollars Selling A Potato Chip On eBay?

YES!!!  Eureka!! My exact words when I sat down to lunch yesterday to scarf down my wholesome tuna fish sandwich along with some potato chips. Not because I was overjoyed at eating a tuna fish sandwich mind you, but because I discovered an unusual potato chip in, of all places, a potato chip bag! (amazing photo below)

The amazing and very rare MisfitWisdom apple-shaped potato chip

There it was. A potato chip shaped like an apple. Yes…an apple shaped potato chip in a potato chip bag!  OMG!  Which is what I said to myself after saying eureka.

Now this may not seem earth shattering to any of you reading today’s blog, but that’s most likely due to the fact that most of you probably never pay any attention to the food that you’re eating when you sit down at the table….to eat. Which is the main reason spouses get away with poisoning their other halfs.

Anyhow, I thought to myself, “Geez….this potato chip looks just like the “Apple” computer logo. Right down to the stem. How neat is that! I’ll bet ya I could put this on “eBay” and somebody would actually buy it.”

It was at this point that my other half, who did not slip any poison into my tuna fish sandwich, this time, looked at me as if I were nucking futs.

“”What the hell are you talking about?” she said sarcastically.

“Look at this potato chip! It’s the shape of a perfect apple. Do you have any idea what this means?”

“Um, does it mean your losing it or you forgot to take your medication today?”

“No, no, no. You don’t understand dear. Remember seeing stories in the news about people who find images of Jesus on a piece of toast and stuff and then someone offers them gazillions of dollars for it.  I think I may have found something like that!”

“In a freakin’ potato chip….you ARE nucking futs.”

“Oh yeah, well we’ll see about that! Just don’t come looking for a handout when I make a gazillion dollars selling this on “eBay.”

Image of Jesus on a piece of toast. UM….WAIT! I think this is the wrong photo. I’m pretty sure it’s the next photo below. Sorry.

Either this is an actual image of Jesus on piece of toast or some guy fell asleep while eating breakfast, fell over face first on his piece of toast, and after waking up, passed it off as an image of Jesus.

At that point, determined that I had a sure-fire golden goose, (in this instance a potato chip) I carefully placed the potato chip into a plastic container and put it in the cupboard.  I would have taken it to my safe deposit box at my bank but it was Sunday, and besides, I don’t even have a safe deposit box. I have absolutely nothing that needs to be safe. Except that potato chip.

I went to bed last night thinking about how rich I would become when I post the potato chip on “eBay” and the bids start rolling in. I also thought kinda logically too. Like what if “eBay” wouldn’t let me post a potato chip on their site because they don’t allow food items on “eBay,” or, because posting a potato chip on their site might attract ants. OR….they think I’m nucking futs too.

There was only one sure-fire way to find out. Yep….post the potato chip on eBay.

OMG! It worked! I actually posted my rare one of a kind potato chip on eBay. And they never worried about ants. How neat is that!

Now all I have to do is sit back for five days, (the length of the bidding process) and wait for the bids to come rolling in. As you can see I listed the starting bid at a mere $1,000 and you also have the option of buying it now for only $2,000.  I figured that if someone really wanted this rare item, I’d give them the chance to buy it now for $2,000 rather than wait for the bidding go off the wall and be way out of their reach.

Now, if no one wants this potato chip I have a few other options. I could donate it to the “Apple” computer company and they could display it in the lobby of their corporate offices. I could donate it to “Frito-Lay” and THEY could display it in the lobby of their corporate offices. Or…..if no one wants it……….

Make another tuna fish sandwich and eat the sucker.

Should my rare and highly unusual potato chip actually sell for $2,000 or more, I’ll make a donation to myself on PayPal just so that I can say someone other than that one other person actually donated.
