Is there something funny in that auction somewhere? I admittedly only skimmed it.

Cool. My nickname when I ran with the pack was "Wild Son." Now, with just seven nails (which I'm assuming would be sold separately), I can put my "street name" on my bedroom door for everyone (well, mommy, but hey, mommy!) to see!

Or better yet:

Lids now!

(or even, with the alternate letter usage:)

You didn't miss anything.

I guess the punch line is funny, wondering what the fuss was about until finally scrolling down to the pic of the "LINDOWS" Corp that was, presumably, sued because of its moniker.

moiLs up!

I can't decide if that's a toast ("Salut! Slainte! Moils up!") or a slightly Yiddish sounding version of "screws up."

Good one, clevershark!

Five thousand dollars? You've got to be kidding me. I've got some of the letters from last time my company was bought -- big honkin' stainless dealies -- and they didn't cost me a dime. Says "MooSe." Nothing impresses The Ladies quite like some banged up old letters on your bedroom wall. Awww yeah.
