And The Casino Is A 6-5 Favorite In The Suit

| 4 Comments | 1 TrackBack

So Daisy got the bright idea to sell ad space on her pregnant belly on eBay (look at this picture and tell me you can't hear the banjos. Also, her name's not really Daisy, but whatever). OK, fine, it's a free country and all, although I have to wonder what babydaddy's opinion on the matter is... oh, who am I kidding?

Aaaaaaanyway, there's this little detail about selling on eBay - when somebody wins an auction for something you're selling, you have to either actually sell it to them or not to anybody at all. And apparently this is an issue for young Bobby Sue:

"The highest bidder at first was SunPoker.com but I decided after the auction ended not to go with them and decided to go with The Golden Palace Casino," she said.

SunPoker.com argues that by putting the auction on eBay, she agreed to sell to the highest bidder, reports Local 6 News.

But Elise insisted: "No, even if I was selling T-shirts or anything else on eBay, as a seller, I have the right to decide who I want to sell to."

And you know that (as the above story refers to) my favorite TV station website, Orlando's Local6, would be on the case. Apparently, little Missy Jo is proceeding with her updated business plan:

Racing fans at the Daytona International Speedway this weekend will likely see the pregnant woman who sold advertising space on her stomach, according to a Local 6 News report.
and SunPoker is going ahead with theirs:
Harp, who is due to give birth next month, faces a lawsuit by SunPoker.com for violating eBay rules.

Local 6 News reported that according to the auction site's rules, once bidding ends, a product must go to the highest bidder and that the auction is a binding contract."

Update: We get picture (thanks to Joe S.):
Not an actual picture of Elisa Harp's wedding

It's White Trash Wednesday! Take the whole tour:

This hand-crafted hunk of tree love was specially carved for Presidential election loser Al Gore. Rumor has it that his love for trees finally overwhelmed him to the point that he was driven to consummate his relationship with nature. Read More

Holy Crap! It's my sister/aunt/cousin Tibbie!

What a great idea!

Personally, I would've paid good money to place a Planned Parenthood ad.

Tasteless? Yes. Funny? You bet.

Cheers,

I have a thing for pregnant women. How much do you think she charges?
