Ask yourself. What is a classification for stupid people? If you’re a die-hard liberal and want to make a joke at the expense of the other side, you might say “Republicans.” Or “conservatives.” If you’re being a bit more serious and don’t feel like insulting an entire demographic based on the apparent low intelligence of a few (okay, more than a few, but the point stands), you might say, “people that get facial tattoos for money on Ebay.” Apparently Eric Hartsburg of Indiana made a leap of brilliance and decided to do both. Hartsburg posted on Ebay selling the five by two inch space for $5,000 to anybody that wanted to advertise — on his face.
Here’s the video where he describes what he’s doing:
And here’s the picture of the final result:
That’s right, ladies and gentleman. Somebody paid him five thousand dollars to get the Romney logo tattooed on his face, and he did it. I’m not sure how effective this will be for advertising purposes; facial tattoos aren’t well accepted in society. Maybe he just really likes Aquafresh.
Huffington Post slightly makes fun of him in their report, saying,
What was Hartsburg’s motive? “I wish it could be a more noble cause than just saying, ‘hey, let’s have a good time’,” he explained to ABC 57. “But you only live once, and I was born with a forehead, so why not?” Words that will live for posterity: I was born with a forehead.
According to RTV6, when Hartsburg isn’t busy selling himself on eBay, he works as a professional wrestler.
This will be a fun one to explain to the grand kids if he doesn’t get it removed. However, getting it removed would likely result in an invalidation of the buyer/seller contract, requiring that he pay back the money.
