Apparently $5,300 is the going rate for what is presumably the most expensive used tissue in the world.
Last week Scarlett Johansson got into the spirit of the holiday sniffles on the Tonight Show With Jay Leno. She claimed she caught the cold from costar Samuel L. Jackson. After Leno handed her a tissue and the starlet gave a good blow, she joked that the used hanky had some value.
To test her hypothesis, the tissue was placed on the auction block on eBay, with proceeds benefiting USA Harvest.
Seems an anonymous, recession-proof fan dug deep into his or her pockets and anted up the big bucks for ScarJo's snot rag during a last-minute bidding war.
The winner of the golden mucus will be confirmed and announced on tonight’s Tonight Show.
