Sheepie Auction No. 2

The second of our ten commemorative Sheepies is now open for bidding. This time, bidding will only go until this Friday.

Rules and Regulations

— Bidding starts Monday, August 23rd and ends Friday, August 27th at 12:00 PM (Noon) Central 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: armin@underconsideration.com_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!

Can we taunt even if we don't bid?

You gotta earn your right to taunt. You must bid.

Less than three hours left.

> can I pull the ole' "Price is Right" and bid $50.01?

Good question… I'd have to say no. It's just kind of flakey — no offense of course. I'll add that rule for the next auction: You must bid in increments of at least $0.50.
