That is an honest to goodness eBay auction of George Zimmerman art -- bought for $100,000 after a soul-crushing 96 bids. That is, someone willingly paid a small fortune to own a painting made by a guy who is only famous for shooting a kid, which, as far as reasons to press "reset" on this long, sad game of SimCity we call our society go, is a pretty solid one.
But hey, perhaps people just know good, original, and totally-not-a-stock-photo-no-sir art when they see it.
Weird, the co-author is listed as "S. LaBeouf."
Marilyn Monroe's Medical Records -- Over $25,000
As far as celebrity perversion goes, buying Marilyn Monroe's famous dress or lock of hair is pretty standard at this point -- she was, after all, known for both of those features. What she tends to be less known for, however, is her famous skull:
As mentioned before, people will monetize anybody who blew JFK's brains out.
Yep, the blonde bombshell's medical records were recently auctioned off for $25,600, which is actually $4,400 less than the seller hoped to get. This is especially baffling when you consider that, even if you really need to know all the details of Monroe's plastic surgeries and ectopic pregnancies, all that stuff was already publicly detailed on the auction's listing, for free. That means that whoever bought this needed to go beyond simple information and actually had to have a kinetic relationship with the outline of the deceased actress's skull and dental X-rays -- which incidentally make a great reference for any life-size Monroe doll made of sawdust and hooker parts.
