Scarlett Johansson’s mucous sells for $5,300


Somebody has too much time and money to be let out alone on the vast marketplace that is eBay. As we recently reported, Scarlett Johansson blew her nose into a tissue during a recent Tonight Showvisit, and what should have gone directly into the trash went directly up for auction on eBay. Unbelievably, and rather disgustingly if you ask me, the item sold with a final price of $5,300.

Times may be tough all over this holiday season, but that didn’t stop an anonymous bidder from digging deep into their pockets to place the winning bid of $5,300 on Scarlett Johansson’s used tissue!

Last week, a sniffly and sneezy ScarJo appeared on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. the actress explained to Jay that she had likely caught the bad cold from her Spirit co-star Samuel L. Jackson. She told Leno that for this reason, her cold had some “value,” and after the host offered her a tissue for a bit of nose-blowing, it was decided that the snotty bit of flimsy paper should be auctioned off on eBay, with all proceeds from the auction to benefit USA Harvest.

When I first heard that this gross little piece of Johansson was going to be auctioned off, the first thing that sprang to mind was The Big Bang Theory. On a recent episode, the character Sheldon is given a napkin that Leonard Nimoy wiped his mouth with at dinner. It was autographed, as well, but that wasn’t the part Sheldon was freaking out about, it was the DNA. All he needed was a suitable ovum, and he would have his very own little Mr. Spock.

Quite frankly, if it wasn’t someone with creepy DNA intentions that bought Scarlett’s snot rag, I’m even more disturbed. The only saving grace of this story is that the proceeds from the auction are going to charity. Bidding for the item on eBay was by pre-approved, anonymous bid. The snipers were hard at work, as the price jumped from $4,050 to the final $5,300 in the last minute.

    I saw this and thought it was a joke. She kinds seemed like she thought Leno was joking too.
    It’s a sad world when I’m scrambling for money to fill the propane tank to keep my family warm and some FOOL blows 5 grand on snot.
    Dude I’ve got tons of snot to sell if that’s your thing

    Nope, people are sick !

    Whatever their motives, the money went to a good place, and some hungry people will get to eat because of ScarJo’s snot and Leno’s obsession with eBay. Kinda weird, but good nonetheless.

    I’m hoping that it’s just a person who wanted to donate to the charity and not some creepazoid dirty tissue licker or something. When I watched Jay Leno and he was asking her to donate her snot rag (technically, it was Samuel Jackson’s cold that she was donating! but gross) I thought, well, if I had a lot of extra money and I liked the charity, I’d probably bid on it since it’s so kooky. But if I won, I’d toss the kleenex. That’s pretty gross.

    The buyer was probably some bored millionaire douchebag with nothing more than an Ebay fetish who shuns homeless people in real life.

    Human inanity knows no bounds. But, like other people have said, at least the money went to charity.

    Can someone help me find her used tampon on Ebay? I have 6 grand to spare.
