On a Humerous Note..........

Georgia-Shaped Chip on Ebay

The bids on Ebay for a blue tortilla chip shaped like the state of Georgia reached $41 by Friday afternoon. The bidding was scheduled to remain open until April 7.

In posted comments on the auction site, the seller said the chip came from a Moe’s Southwestern Grill in Alpharetta and was cooked on March 30. It is currently stored in a humidity-controlled container.

"As I was eating my Moo Moo Mr. Cow burrito, I looked down at my plate and noticed this incredible little tortilla chip in the shape of the state in which I call home," the seller wrote. The seller even added topographical features to the picture of the chip to back up the contention the chip is shaped like the Peach State. The interstate lines are not being sold with the tortilla chip.

All proceeds from the sale will go to the Children of Fallen Soldiers Relief Fund, which helps support children who have lost a parent in the Afghanistan or Iraq wars.
