    <!-- TextEnd -->So would you wear an ad on your head for a month for $40k? I'd probably do it.

    You have to be kidding me!!

    Now I know a lot of us heard of this story a week or two ago but check out how much money he received for this.

    Unfuckingbelievable!!!




    Co. to Advertise on Neb. Man's Forehead

    OMAHA, Neb. - A Web-page designer who auctioned off the use of his forehead for advertising space is letting it go to his head.

    Andrew Fischer, 20, of Omaha, who put his forehead for sale on eBay as advertising space, received $37,375 on Friday to advertise the snoring remedy, SnoreStop.

    Fischer will display the SnoreStop logo on his forehead for one month.

    "I look forward to an enjoyable association with Andrew — a man who clearly has a head for business in every sense of the word," SnoreStop CEO Christian de Rivel said.

    "People will always comment on something out of the ordinary," Fischer said in his sales pitch. "People like weird."

    But there were limits: He refused from the outset to be the conduit for any message or product deemed tasteless or unacceptable in traditional advertising formats.

    Well considering that I already edited the post right after I posted it for spacing purposes means that you were too slow. 1:57 is the post time after I had to go back and edit it. That's why the guys photo is missing from it.

    BTW, is it just my computer or is this site loading really SLOW this afternoon?

    Wait you edited the picture of that douche out? That ain't right. The site isn't any slower than normal for me. It tends to slow down this time of day.

    1:57 is after I edited it once. You can edit without an edit time showing up at the bottom of your post if no one has looked at it yet.

    I accidentally took it out when I had to delete the space between parargraphs.

    Didn't mean to do it. Whenever I cut and paste Yahoo articles it always puts a ton of space between the paragraphs.

    Can I ask an obvious question?


    Who gives a fuck who posted it first?





    Meanwhile, this guy is an idiot. He would have done it for 39.95 just to get the attention.

    Hell yeah, I'd put an ad for Tampons on my head for that much.

    DEBuckeye It ain't easy, bein' cheesy.

    If I was in college I would consider doing it for $40K, but not now. And I agree that he was probably just trying to get attention.

    What about Valtrex? :p

    You could get a lot of stuff with that kind of money though. If I were rich I would have won that one and made him put douchebag on his head.

    edit- damn Scarlet beat me to it

    Shit... in college I knew guys who would have done it for a compensation package including: 5 dollars, 4 Marlboro Reds, 3 Busch Lights and a bong hit.

    Lemme tell ya, there are very few things that I would NOT do for 40k. Might even take a shot in the mouth :)

    Don't you get points for every post that is made in a thread you start? Oh you don't. Nevermind. :p

    40K will get you a nice car or a good down payment on a house.
