Up for auction is Vincent Gallo's sperm.

by the time you read about it here, i realize that most of you may have seen it posted elsewhere (although it's not on boingboing just yet!). usually when i come to metafilter it's not to learn about the new memes, but to hear what y'all have to say about them -- so that's basically my motivation for posting.

so...what, uh, what's going on here, do you think?

More of the pointless attention-whoring Gallo's known for.

I mean, um, it's art!

Did you read it? Mr. Gallo maintains the right to refuse sale of his sperm to those of extremely dark complexions.
And so on, until the racist blither coats the nation from shore to shore.

I'm not sure I understand why someone decided to pick on Vincent Gallo. I mean, sure, it's easy. But what?

Nah, we only stock moral midgets.
Bonus question: who first used the phrase moral midget?

No.

Far be it from me to let the facts get in the way of a nice hate-on.

i'm a moron ... to think i've been giving mine away for nothing all these years ...

I call hoax but I suppose it could be real. Gallo's own web site makes no mention of it, however, even in the merchandise section.

He can keep it.

There. I started the meme.

Gallo likes to portray himself as racist and anti-semitic.

Someone probably took offence and decided for a little e-bay payback.

Or, alternatively, how about : putting the 'goo' back in Google!

I was always amused at how Laura Ingraham would have Gallo on her show, time after time after time, because he was all too eager too dish dirt on those "wacky Hollyweird Libs". Always wondered if anyone told the "family values" harpy about "Brown Bunny".

I'd buy it and destroy it, but I'm sure he'd just make more.

I don't think one can sell vials of human fluids as they may contain infectious agents and that's reason why it was removed...biohazard material.

About the guy doing the stunt to obtain attention..well I would have admired him for auctioning his balls but I guess some people is good only at looking tought by words.

I can't stand the asshole. I don't agree with his politics, but that's not why I hate him. He's just this mediocre pretentious dork who had to come up with this lame stunt to get some attention.

And Route 66 blows. He had to write a scene (that did nothing to further the "plot") in the film where someone remarks on his large manhood. So to review, he's an: insecure, mediocre, racist, braindead, butt ugly fuck. I don't think he can give his sperm away, much less sell it.

You want to talk about stupid memes? How about posting foolish publicity auctions that everyone knows will be cancelled by eBay within 24 hours? It was barely funny that first time, and that was in 1995.

Faint of Butt - I'd buy it and destroy it, but I'm sure he'd just make more.

Well then, I guess you'll have to destroy the source.

although no one will read this, i just thought i'd point out that the original ebay auction was apparently legitimate.
