Then What's The Use?


A

s you all may or may not know, there is a huge auction on Ebay for victims of the hurricanes. Many 'stars' donated a lot of cast-off T-shirts, hats, Funky Munky shorts, jewelry, wristbands, barstools and compact umbrellas once owned, used and, in some cases, modeled by the pop star. All proceeds from the sale were to benefit victims of Hurricane Katrina, which devastated Britany Spears' home state of Louisiana. Britany donated a bra... but not just any bra.

From the moment Britney's bra went on the auction block it was a huge success. Bidding was brisk. At one point Thursday afternoon, the lingerie was going for $33,100. By Saturday, the bra peaked at about $47,000. (Those old umbrellas, by comparison, could be had for well under $100.)

However, last Wednesday, eBay gatekeepers delisted the big-ticket bra, judging it to be in violation of the site's undergarment policy, which forbids the sale of previously worn delicates. Apparently Brit wore the bra once to promote a special from Las Vegas...

So therefore, my question is why would you want to buy a bra that she NEVER wore? If I'm plunking down $47,000 and some odd change... I want it used dammit!

Observations and Questions
What do you think? Oh and if any of you out there have a used bra you want to mail me, I'll provide my home address. lol
