    I believe it...
    I remember when McDonalds started a craze here in Michigan some years back. I couldn't get over the long drive thru lines backed out into the street and a mile down the road. People were cutting other people off, honking their horns, giving each other the bird, you name it...people were just going nuts over those stupid things. It was worse than Holiday traffic.

    What the hell is so special about a little stuffed animal that would make you go to such extremes to get one???

    But even better is his auction for a certificate buying him a drink. Wonder how long he can keep this up. Sure made some good money the last round.

    Hell this Drunken Sailor gets more unique page views on a eBay auction then some portal sites. Maybe I should auction off Charlie's Original Collectable Parrot Poop! Side auction for a video showing him blasting the couch cat with some of his sunflower seed butt shots.

    Mike & Charlie ...

    If they won't adopt and feed a bird ..flip them one! BBQ some Gator and remember to flush WhenU..

    DAMN!!!!!!!!!

    There's some serious traffic there!!!!!!

    95,000 (0r is that pulling my let?) on the certificate,,,and 877,000 on the beanies? is the counter adding 10 clicks each time? (did he start the counter in the ,000's?)

    46 bids for beanie babies... can't believe there's still a market for it...

    It was in our local newspaper from an international wire service over the weekend so the traffic makes sense.

    Do something funny, get it in the news, the traffic will come.

    Well, talk about ad spin.

    The beanie babies were real, the cheating wife wasn't.
