Ridiculous eBay Find

Logging on to eBay this morning, I noticed a photo of this shoe in the eBay Stories blog. Yes, apparently even eBay now has a blog, and this joke was under the Remarkable Finds section. As an artist, I'm open to all sorts of abstract, unconventional work. However, I cannot accept this chewed wingtip as art. Given a saw, a hammer and a chisel, I could pull off the same thing in a half hour. Who the **** is bidding on this? You want shoe-art? An antique Italian or English-cobbled brogue is a true handcrafted work of art, and something which, for $150, would be much more attractive on display than a chewed Cole Haan.

Update: With 1 day and 22 hours remaining, this **** is now up to $305.
