From Ebay:

“During her 12/17/08 appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Scarlett Johansson blamed her cold on The Spirit co-star Samuel L. Jackson, saying she caught it from him. She believed that for this reason her cold had some “value.” During her appearance on The Tonight Show, she blew her nose into a tissue provided by Jay Leno. All proceeds of this sale will benefit USA Harvest, the charity of Scarlett Johansson’s choice.”


The auction recently ended with a winning bid of $5,300.00. Now, I think Scarlett Johansson is one foxy lady and I’d gladly pay to watch her read a telephone book (or Frank Miller’s The Spirit). But spending $5,300 for a tissue that may or may not give me the Bird Flu is not my idea of a good “investment.” Sure it’s for charity and I’d have the DNA of Scarlett Johansson with the opportunity to clone an army of “nekkid” Johanssons, but just think about how many Hot Pockets I can buy with that much money. Mmm Hot Pockets…
