Item(s) of the Day

posted by on December 4 at 11:03 AM

Two days and counting

Chris Crocker Bitches You Out
A telephone consultation with Chris Crocker, during which the YouTube celebrity, homo icon, and passionate defender of Britney will tell you what, exactly, the fuck is wrong with you. Plus: Chris sends you a pair of his underpants! Priceless! Opening bid: $1.99.


Giant Motherfucking Television
A 50-inch, Samsung plasma-screen television! Why would you want such a thing? You ought to be ashamed of yourself! Why don’t you pick up a book for once in your life? A $2,900 value. Opening bid: $1.99.


And I still can’t believe Pacific Northwest Ballet is letting us do this:

Ballet Fetishist
Pacific Northwest Ballet has been sexing up its ad campaigns for a few years—pictures of its hotter dancers, all close-up and perspiring. Now you’ll be able to smell the sweat, with a pair of used pointe shoes, a used dance belt, (it’s basically a jock strap), and an invitation for you and a guest to watch Roméo et Juliette from backstage—the West Coast premiere, with choreography by Jean-Christophe Maillot and music by Prokofiev. Swoon! Opening bid: $1.99.

Holy shit. PNB is fucking awesome. I know what I'm telling my husband to bid on.

Chris Crocker? Isn't it time that horse gets put out to pasture... someone's fifteen seconds of fame passed a few months ago.

Chris Crocker,

Poster Child for a "Hate" crime...

Some hetero must have slaughtered their kids to get such beautiful photos, hmmm I wonder who it was?

Please stop extending Chris Crocker's 15 minutes of fame.

I don't know a buck ninety-nine seems fair for whats essentially a free long distance call.

Some old shoes and a used jock strap, however, now thats something.

Chris Crocker is a homo icon now?

No wonder so many people hate the gays. o_O

Seriously, he wasn't funny the first time. Let him die in quiet obscurity like nature intended.

Isn't 1.99 a bit optimistic for Chris Crocker?

Posted by Amelia | December 4, 2007 1:43 PM

Well, yes, Amelia, but they balked at asking for $0.02.

Everyone is so negative. I'm VERY impressed the Stranger pulled off these two items. The ballet auction is hilarious but the Chris Crocker auction is going to raise a TON of money if his internet friends find out about it.

Yes, I'm kind of getting tired of the weird Stranger obsession with Chris Crocker. I mean, didn't we all know a Chris Crocker in high school? Or is that it: we're pretending this one is a "gay icon" we love because we feel a little guilty for being annoyed by and dismissive of our high school Chris Crocker.

Why don't we take up a collection and see if we can buy the Chris Crocker call for Ecce? I really think those two would hit it off.
