Scarlett Johansson's snot for sale on eBay.
December 18, 2008 12:38 PM   Subscribe

On December 17's Tonight Show With Jay Leno, featured guest Scarlett Johansson claimed she had caught a cold from Samuel L. Jackson; she said she felt that her germs were valuable, coming from Jackson, and maybe she could sell them on eBay. Jay Leno handed her a tissue, she blew her nose. The used tissue was sealed in a plastic bag, which was signed by Johansson. Proceeds go to charity.

Doesn't ebay have a policy against selling bodily fluids?

A friend of mine once said of a woman at the restaurant, "I'd eat shit from her ass to see where it came from." I'm sure he would approve of this.

(yeah, I know: pre-emptively - eponysterical.)

Yeah, I think they do. I remember a post a while back about some sort of anti-ebay that was create for people to sell all the things that weren't allowed to be sold on ebay. I remember it seemed to be popular with certain women who sold certain, um, used clothing that isn't allowed on eBay because of the bodily fluid rule.

Normally, both your asses would be dead as fucking fried chicken, but you happen to pull this shit while I'm in a transitional period so I don't wanna kill you, I wanna help you. But I can't give you this kleenex, it don't belong to me. Besides, I've already been through too much shit this morning over this kleenex to hand it over to your dumb ass.

Actually, you might be able to combine the DNA to create an actor with Jackson's talent and Johansson's body.

Or vice versa.

Buy it, get her DNA analyzed, and sell the report to a gossip magazine. "Scarlett's Twisted Family Secrets" -- "Her Double Helix Tells All".

So when the Bad-Mother-Fucker Virus (BMFV) wipes out 3/4ths of the planet, we know who patient zero was and who was the Typhoid Mary who gave it to the rest of us, huh?

Thanks, Scarlett. Thanks a lot.

I was hoping for an angry response from Jackson, along the lines of "Motherfucker, I didn't give you no got-damn cold."

I just figured out what he says to her at the end of Lost In Translation:

"Listen, you've got something dangling from your nose."

The bid is currently up to $2,151.00.

washburn Not exactly a first. (or post-worthy)

I have been waiting years for this:

"Who is Claude Applegarth?" she asked.
"He's supposed to be the most influential critic in New York. And I suppose that means the world," said Schnak.
"I do not know his name," said the Doctor. "And I blow my nose in his hair."


_from The Lyre Of Orpheus, by Robertson Davies

Anyway, it was either this or this.

Watch, she probably got the cold from Ryan Reynolds or Woody Allen or something.

I predict this cloning experiment will go horribly wrong in ways y'all never imagined.

No, it's the germ's DNA they have in common -- it's not like she snorted his sperm.
