It's possible this is the greatest hockey item ever listed on eBay. Or at least the greasiest.
From seller "koskre8r" in Arlington, Va., in unedited prose. Read it in Zach Galifianakis' voice. We did:
Behold it is my Burger King French Fry Hockey Stick which was in a medium french fry container bought at the drive-thru along with 2 whopper juniors here in Arlington Virginia just outside of Washington, D.C.
I grew up playing ice and roller hockey and the instant I saw it i knew what it was, a hockey stick.
I guarantee to you 100% that this is absoulutely [sic] authentic from Burger King and not tampered with in any way. I would assume that processing from a potato to a french fry at the Burger King factory is 85% automated and 15% by people and you have to admit considering quality control standards that if the computers or people had spotted this one it would have been discarded during processing and never made it to me fried and salted because french fries are supposed to be straight although some places sell them curly, but not Burger King, and being shaped like a hockey stick i guess makes it rare and thus worth money, but how much money?
The asking price? Why $8,888.88, of course, being that "8" is the seller's lucky number. But our fry-honoring friend is also willing to accept any offer submitted for the item: "At least give me enough to cover shipping cost but I feel my buy it now price is reasonable."
