Scarlett Johansson’s snotty tissue sells for $5,300

Scarlett Johansson's snotty tissue sells for $5,300Last week, Scarlett Johansson appeared on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno with a bad cold, explaining that she’d likely caught it from her The Spirit co-star Samuel L. Jackson. She told Leno that because of this, her cold had some “value,” so Leno offered her a tissue to blow her nose. Once done blowing, she placed it in a plastic ziplock bag, which she promptly autographed to be auctioned off on eBay, with proceeds going to benefit USA Harvest, which feeds “those less fortunate through missions, shelters and soup kitchens throughout the United States.”
The winning bid on the snot-covered tissue was $5,300 (U.S.).

    I wonder what this moron would have paid for her stool.

    This topic is not worth the half cent the tissue cost. Get a life people.

    you have all missed the very obvious point here. It’s not the snot rag, it’s where the proceeds were directed.

    who cares about the tissue?

  6. demigod • December 24, 2008 @ 1:06 PM

    Jo, the point wasn’t lost on me. The bidder cares about the tissue. Can’t people just GIVE? Or bid on something worthy? Without the spectacle of something so disgusting?

    Against eBays rules. You cannot sell human DNA.

  8. dave • December 24, 2008 @ 1:56 PM

    maybe the autograph should be given some credit here?
    would it have fetched that amount with it?
    is it not okay to prompted about a charity you may not have considered otherwise?

    will there be more Scarlet’s running around because some Dr.Frankenstein now has a real good DNA sample?

    I prefer to pay a candy 100$ and the profit goes to a fondation then give 100$ directly!!

    So I gest I’m not the only only that like to give and have a little something in return.

  10. Jo-Anne. • December 24, 2008 @ 3:53 PM

    demigod, I do believe this person did JUST give. That’s just it.

    I hardly doubt the kleenex will be saved.

    $5,300 for a used kleenex, sure the kleenex is disgusting, I would think that obvious, but the money raised far outweighs the item.
    my thought only.

  11. demigod • December 24, 2008 @ 4:36 PM

    Oh the kleenex will be saved. Just as a conversation piece. I’m all for the cause, but it’s pathetic purchasing such a thing, even embarrassing.

  12. Jo-Anne. • December 24, 2008 @ 5:11 PM

    agree demigod on that – let’s hope to hell the only place this kleenex is going is in the trash basket!

  13. purchaser • December 25, 2008 @ 4:00 AM

    Listen to those of you judging me, I decided to purchase the kleenex because I am a very huge fan and I would do it again…Im going to sleep with that kleenex next tomy bedside…dont be jealous, anyone of you can smell it if you like.
    good night.

  14. the sniffer • December 26, 2008 @ 5:51 AM

    i don’t want her stool, but i would pay big bucks for her soiled panties in a ziplock bag.
    i would be the happiest man in the world!

  15. tributegirl • December 26, 2008 @ 12:36 PM

    Interesting comment above.
    Anyway, I think the kleenex will probably be saved as a conversation piece, which I think is disgusting. I also think it’s quite egotistical. What I mean by that is, if she was going to offer something up for auction with the proceeds going to charity, why a used kleenex? Why not something a little more sanitary at least?

    All you people out there are givings this way to much thought and attention. GET A LIFE

  18. rod • December 29, 2008 @ 1:48 PM

    I’m sorry I have just been feeling a little sensitive since my boyfriend broke up with me on boxing day. But I understand that I was acting like a complete homosexual and I apologize for my behaviour. I am gay.

  19. mandee • January 2, 2009 @ 6:16 PM
