Does this single Kellogg’s Nutri-Grain look like E.T?

 

 

Well, someone thinks so..and is willing to pay alot of money for it.

First a toasted cheese sandwich bearing a resemblance to the Virgin Mary sold for $36,000. Now a single Kellogg’s Nutri-Grain with a remarkable similarity to E.T. has been auctioned on the internet for $1035.

 

Chris Doyle, 27, of Sydney, came within seconds of pouring milk on to the grain, but quick thinking turned a $5 box of cereal into a financial bonanza.

 

“I just didn’t think it would go this far,” he said. “I was just trying to find someone who feels the same way about E.T. as they do about the Virgin Mary.”

 

He said he would be sad to part with his extra-terrestrial look-alike. “I have grown rather attached to it.”

 

Spirited buyers from around the globe bid for the right to own the bizarre item, which has been lacquered.

Opportunism? Certainly. But can anyone blame Mr Doyle for trying? There is obviously a market for malformed food that resembles famous humans and extra terrestrials.

 

No doubt that more opportunistic people are going to start “carving” and “shaping” their food in order to make some easy cash. Come to think of it…perhaps I could take that bag of marshmallows and make myself a Michael Moore..
