WTF?

Someone is selling a lump of grass from a Liam Gallagher concert for £43,000 

Trolling through eBay can be rewarding when it comes to weird rock star memorabilia. Over the years, I’ve seen a collection of Thom Yorke’s toenail clippings for sale (ew), a jar of air taken from a Kanye album listening event, and an empty jar said to have contained Moby’s soul (a comment on the way he licensed his music.) Now we have this.

Liam Gallagher played a big gig at Knebworth last weekend, which (if you discount the traffic chaos that followed) was by all accounts a great success.

Someone grabbed a club of grass from the field and put it up for sale on eBay. The starting price was a modest five quid–still a lot for a couple of blades of grass–but bidding has blown up to beyond £40,000.

I wouldn’t bother. I found this listing for a similar clump of grass for 10 pounds. Note that shipping costs almost 25 pounds.
