IHT Britney Spears’s fans don’t think the pop star’s chewed gum is “Toxic” – they’re buying wads of it on eBay. There are more than two dozen auctions of used gum on eBay, each claiming their product has been spit out by the 22-year-old singer. Prices go as high as $14,000, but most are for significantly less. Though there is no way to verify the authenticity of the various wads, many postings include photos of a small piece of chewed gum, a copy of a ticket stub from the “place of finding” and a personal story of procurement.
eeeww… I wonder what people do with this used gum when they buy it. Or maybe I shouldn’t ask…
