eBay Tells Glenn Beck He May Not Auction Off an Obama Statue Floating in Urine

It is with a heavy heart that I tell you that Glenn Beck still exists.
 eBay Tells Glenn Beck He May Not Auction Off an Obama Statue Floating in Urine

(Screencap: Ebay)

It seems as if poor, poor Glenn Beck is the next sympathetic figure to be punished by eBay’s Machiavellian auction rules. After submerging an Obama statue in what he claimed to be a glass case of his own urine, he decided to auction the piece of “art” off, with proceeds benefitting his own charity, Mercury One. Someone actually offered $11,300 for the statue, maturely named “Obama in Pee Pee,” before eBay swooped in and shut the whole thing down.

Wrote Ebay:

Your listing contain the bodily fluid of urine. We do not allow bodily fluids to be listed on our site. Even if the liquid in the jar is not urine, you are describing it as such.

Now, Mr. Beck is soliciting donations via Gmail, because this is Amurrica, dammit.

The whole thing was meant to be some sort of comment on a piece of artwork where a dude peed on a cross, but really it just made us all acknowledge, once again, that Glenn Beck exists.
