Sheepie Auction No. 3

The third of our ten commemorative Sheepies is now open for bidding. Bidding will be effective until this Friday, October 8th.

Rules and Regulations

— Bidding starts Monday, October 4th and ends Friday, October 8th at 12:00 PM (Noon) Eastern Standard Time.

— If it comes down to the last second, the first comment with 12:00 PM will be the winner.

— Bidding will be done using the regular Speak Up commenting method. Please state the specific amount you want to bid using dollars and cents, as such: 9.99. No need to add the dollar sign.

— If there is overlap — meaning two people posting at the same time — the highest bid is the one that will be considered.

— If you wish to taunt while you bid, please specify your amount in the very first line so that it is clear that you are bidding, insert two breaks between bid and taunt or snarky commentary.

— If for any reason you wish to make an anonymous bid, you may do so. When you enter your bid, you can put “Anonymous” under name, then enter your real e-mail address and enter http://xxx for URL, that way your e-mail will not show up as the URL overrides that information. In your e-mail please state your name so that I can know who you are. For example:

Name: Anonymous
E-mail: [email protected]_Armin Vit
URL: http://xxx

— Winner gets one of ten signed Sheepies. Shipping costs will be taken care of by Speak Up. Payment has to be made before shipping of Sheepies. Payments can be made via check or money order. We will ship international.

— I think that’s it, happy biddings!

Less than 24 hours to go… anybody willing to vanquish Ben?

On Oct.07.2004 at 06:06 PM
Michael H.’s comment is:

It's not a question of vanquishing Ben, it's about vanquishing hope.

$55.00 and ready for more...

i believe you shall re submit your bid if you intend to win. you aren't following the format rules of bidding.

For those who are wondering what rule is being broken:

— If you wish to taunt while you bid, please specify your amount in the very first line so that it is clear that you are bidding, insert two breaks between bid and taunt or snarky commentary.

I think it's clear that Michael made a bid, so,

$55.00 is the current high bid

Sorry about that guys... I'll do it again to make it right.

$60.00

It's not a question of vanquishing Ben, it's about completely and utterly demolishing hope.

Michael H.’s comment is:

I think I did it right that time. Let me know if not, and I'll post again...

ben’s comment is:

I was just joking around.

Did Michael just outbid himself without realizing it, or does he have many dollars?

On Oct.08.2004 at 08:07 AM
Michael H.’s comment is:

Maybe that's a first here on SU, but I did outbid myself to prove a point: I want this and will pay many dollars for it.

I'm gonna make you pay more Mikey

On Oct.08.2004 at 11:50 AM
Michael H.’s comment is:

Ha! What if I let you pay more? There's a few of these left and I could always bid on another one for maybe less.

No worries Anonymous, thanks for bidding though!

I'm a winner and a loser. I guess I'm going to have to put in for that Crew Chief job at McDonald's. Pulling a second job around Thanksgiving and Christmas should help. I'm really just trying to eek my way through life and buy presents for my kids at Christmas and I blow some money on some ink and paper. WTF was I thinking???!!!

In the words of John "effin" Kerry,

"Reporting for duty!"

Michael H.’s comment is:

Yeah, that's a pretty big chunk out of the wallet. Armin, if Ben is cool with it and you are cool with it... I'll take it for my $66 bid (unless Anonymous wants it for his $67.00)

Ben, if you are out there… let us know. I'm cool with it.
