corn flake shaped like the state of illinois

this is local for me but it seems to be making national news so i thought i'd share:

http://www.usatoday.com/news/offbeat...illinois_N.htm

currently it's for sale on ebay for $96 and it has 3 days left on the auction.

apparently i need to go buy a box of corn flakes and start sorting through them.

Too bad it wasn't shaped like the Virgin Mary. It would have fetched much more on eBay. Or they could have just sold tickets so zealots from all over the world (or Mexico) could come and pray to it.

If its a religious icon then you'll be able to retire after ebay'ing it. Anything else won't pay crap

How can someone who spends $1200 on a corn flake sleep at night when there are starving children in the world?
This is why the terrorists hate us.....

There are a bunch of zero feedback bidders in this auction, including the current high bidder, so I'm expecting that the seller will receive a prompt payment, in full.
