Obama Auction: The One You've Been Waiting For

Well here it is.

But first, the back story.

A few years ago, my mother-in-law, who posts here as "Oosje," and who took home this year's Ginny award for Commenter of the Year, went to Burning Man. As you know, Burning man takes place in the middle of the arid Nevada desert, where drinking plenty of water is a must.

Art is king at Burning Man, and those campers who bring their adventurous expressive artistic attitude with them have the best time. Oosje, of course is an artist and went with her artist friends.

And so, in the participatory nature the event, they fashioned drinking cups out of an old lacy red bra and several layers of lacquer. the attached bra strap serves as a clip strap, which was used to clip the ups to themselves when they took a walk-about.

And now, we are auctioning off Oosje's Lacy Red Burning Man Bra Sippy Cup. This is, without a doubt, a completely unique piece to add to your collection!

It even comes with a built-in nipple form!

Ready-set-go! This auction will end Wednesday Night at 9:00(PST)!


  1. How much do I have to pay you to stop trying to get us to buy all this stuff?

    Seriously, just make a donation in the name of the blog and call it a day.

    I'm a little disappointed in the Blurry photo. It's much better than it looks like. Mr. G & T. forgot to mention that it still has original Burning Man Playa dust on it, wich is very important. I made 14 of them for our camp's use. They were traded off at burning man,as a currency, for many other artistic things as well as a bottle of Absinithe. Unfortunately all the Absinithe was consumed or I would have offered that.

  4. OK OK I'll reshoot it from a couple of angles tonight, but you get the idea...

  5. Absinthe! That would make a nice auction item!

    I have some... unfortunately not a full, unopened bottle. But, you're all welcome to come by for a cocktail!

  6. Hmm I shall go home and drink Absinthe tonight as well.

  7. I guess tonight would be a good night for me to crack open my bottle of absinthe.

    Oh, and $20.

  8. Actually, I want this one. $25

  9. Alright! Um, I win!

    I'll get that right out to myself!


Be compelling.
