Man Auctions 'Michael Jackson' Bird Poop
Poop art? One Chicago man thinks so.   (eBay)

The value of bird poop that resembles Michael Jackson is ... nothing, it turns out, but a Chicago man posted it on eBay with an asking price of $500, UPI reports. "One of two things will happen," said Brandon Tudor, 29, before the auction closed with no bids today. "It will go for an astronomical amount or I'll get nothing." But he swears that "everybody loves" the poop art. "There's not one person who's seen it that doesn't agree it looks like Michael Jackson."

Tudor says he was driving on a freeway when the fecal matter struck his Cadillac Seville's windshield—and he spotted the resemblance right away. He claims it was even more noticeable "after it hardened." So he posted the auction (which included the car's complete windshield) with this in his sales pitch: "Are you obsessed with Michael Jackson and want that unique piece no other collector will ever have? Does his spirit live on? The questions are endless..." But we know the answer to one question: Yes, his price was too high. (More Michael Jackson stories.)
