Now the real rankings emerge

There’s a charity auction going on for Doctors Without Borders, and among the items being sold are autographed photos of various people. Aron Ra is dismayed that his photo is going for a quarter of the price of Matt Dillahunty’s.

So how should I feel?

Here’s the whole listing of the charity auction. At least my photo is selling for more than the price of the ballpoint pen. If you really hate me, I suggest you start bidding on that pen and get the price higher.

Heh. I notice that the bidding for the pen is already climbing. It really is a magnificent writing instrument, awesome in its elegance and beauty, and deserving of far more than $1.58 — in fact, I’m sure it’s worth ten times the price of that photo of a homely guy with a beard.

Behold! How can you bear to be without it?

    I think I’ve solved your low self esteem :)

    Careful. It could be the pen, which will microwave a target on contact.

    The only things that are now more expensive than your photo are the copy of Selfish Gene and God Delusion with Dawkins’ autograph, the copy of God is Not Great with several autographs, and a weekend at a desert cattle ranch (or something like that). Not too shabby.

    It really is a lovely pen.

    This is all wrong. I want the pen to go for more than my picture! Why must you people frustrate me so?

    I have the highest bid on the pen right now, but I am hoping some other people do some bidding to get some good cash to a good cause.

    I’m waiting for the key, myself.

    Is it just the one pen, or are the other two included?

    Dang, the only I thing I see that the Redhead might be interested in is the Bavarian Teacups. And right now, she is feeling poor even if the checkbook says otherwise (sigh).

    Does this mean we could finally understand the phylogenetic ordering of the atheist movement?

    The pen is mightier than the sword. It has that going for it.
