Thats so funny. I heard the story on the news a few days ago. Grill cheese, potatoes, corn flakes.. what next! I once found a ruffles potato chip that was shaped just like a heart. I could have put it on ebay but I ate it instead. :D I had a friend who once found a Cheeto shaped like a certain part of the make anatomy... It was very detailed. Now that one might have sold. LOL

I am trying to figure out what the buyer will do with it. That is a lot of money for a flake. I guess anything can bag sold on ebay. I remember the snow ball that sold for a lot there.

This is unbelievable....first of all who the heck would want a cornflake shaped in anything? And I understand from the article they got a bid of $225.00 for it This made me curious...I just went over to ebay...they have a bunch of cornflakes listed...including this one that is shaped like the face of Christ!

The link says tehre is no story right now so I think they have removed that news from there. But anyway after reading your post whatever I figured out, that sounds really funny I mean whose going to bid for cornflake & buy it on Ebay. Yeh, but if the auction has become quite famous then a person who wants publicity may buy it. By the way what was the starting price of the auction?

Its because there are so many multi-billionares out there, that don't know what to do with their money. So they just spend a ton on worthless stuff. And they just buy it because its only on ebay. Haven't you ever heard that Weird Al song? haha. I tell ya, if i was a multi-billionare, i wouldn't really mind spending $200,000 on a corn flake...

This is utterly ridiculous. Anyone who bids on it needs their head examined.
