Seahorse-shaped Cheeto for sale on eBay

PAINTER, Va., -- A Virginia couple who found a Cheeto snack shaped like a seahorse while vacationing in Florida said they are selling the item to benefit an environmental group.

Richard Schmidt of Painter said his wife pulled the unusually-shaped Cheeto from a bag of the snacks while they were vacationing in the Florida Keys, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported Wednesday.

Schmidt said they saved the Cheeto and later decided to sell the item on eBay to benefit Reef Relief, a group dedicated to preserving Florida's coral reefs,

"When I told her a few weeks ago that a chicken nugget that looked like George Washington sold on eBay for $8,100 in support of a charity I told her to get that Cheeto out let's take some pictures and see if it can do some good too," Schmidt said of his conversation with his wife.

The couple, who listed the item with an $8,000 "buy it now" price, said they are hoping Cheetos manufacturer Frito Lay will purchase the seahorse-shaped snack to help the charity.

And this is worth something why? Was it at least actually swimming?

A guy goes to a doctor and says, “Doc, you’ve got to help me. My penis is orange.” Doctor pauses to think and asks the guy to drop his pants so he can check. Damned if the guy’s penis isn’t orange. Doc tells the guy, “This is very strange. Sometimes things like this are caused by a lot of stress in a person’s life.”

Probing as to the causes of possible stress, the doc asks the guy, “How are things going at work?” The guy responds that he was fired about six weeks ago. The doctor tells him that this must be the cause of the stress. Guy responds, “No. The boss was a real asshole, I had to work 20-30 hours of overtime every week and I had no say in anything that was happening. I found a new job a couple of weeks ago where I can set my own hours, I’m getting paid double what I got on the old job and the boss is a really great guy.” So the doc figures this isn’t the reason.

He asks the guy, “How’s your home life?” The guy says, “Well, I got divorced about eight months ago.” The doc figures that this has got to be the reason for all of the guys stress. Guy says, “No. For years, all I listened to was nag, nag, nag. God, am I glad to be rid of that old bitch.” So the doc takes a few minutes to think a little longer.

He inquires, “Do you have any hobbies or a social life?” The guy replies, “No, not really. Most nights I sit home, watch some porno flicks and munch on Cheetos.”

Sorry, couldn’t resist. Came across it while checking e-Bay for other ‘oddly’ shaped Cheetos to post. Did you like the $500 “Baby Seahorse” one?

Yes and no. Yes because it further illustrates the absurdity and no because of the intial absurdity it illustrates.

What do you bet the Schmidts are Democrats....easy money - something for nothing - no harm done. Hell, they can even sue Frito Lay when they don’t get the price they wanted.

That wasn’t directed at you personally, but rather that gay-looking thing you posted a picture of.

I figured that, my furry, whiskered friend!

That’s “Calculon” and I thought he looked like a Cheeto, which seemed to fit the thread.

He’s a robot character on the show called “Futurama” and in the show, he’s a soap opera star so full of himself...it’s hilarious.
