When will it stop?

Most people will answer never... I'm more likely to go with the "when people get sick of this" but who knows when it will be. I'm definitely over it. To be honest, I don't know if I was ever really that interested. Although I guess when the first ridiculous ones started I at least showed an interest in how stupid people are and if they wanna give away money like that why not give it to something more beneficial. Then again it's their money - if they want to waste it.

So anyway all this ranting... Once again there is a news article about someone's auction on TradeMe

Schoolboy seeks belle for the ball

Now if I was completely out of my mind and decided to bid on such an auction, I would at least like to know who I was going with. Because in my mind (and this is coming completely from what guys were like at my high school) it would usually be some arrogant, "I'm so great" jock. Now the article says it shows "a certain degree of entrepreneurial flair"... But how is that when we've already had the hugs, cigarette butts, handbags, streaker bikinis etc.? It's not an original idea but good on him for trying to get some money. If he was a gentleman he would put that money towards hiring a limo and getting a nice corsage for the poor girl.

Now if you're interested, here's the auction. I notice there are no bids so far? Although I'm sure now that the NZ Herald has written an article about it, there will be many visitors.


There is now a bid... But is it real I ask you? And Nick actually just pointed out something to me - maybe he should have specified the sex... Then again these are progressive times and perhaps he is a very progressive boy.
