Squashed under the jackboots of oppression? Crushed by the mighty finger of banninnation? Here is the chance you've been waiting for:

Sweet, sweet revenge.

This little dandy has been brought to my attention and I'm taking RT up on the offer.

Ya know, if you're planning on changing my avatar -and I agree to keep if for thirty days- there should be an auction. Just sayin'.



High bidder chooses the avatar which this Super Mod will bear for thirty full days. Sounds humiliating? We sure hope so.

Bidding starts at $20. Please keep bids in $1 increments. Bidding will end Sunday at 6pm CST. That's only FOUR days, so no time for lurking on this one!

*hint* If you want to join forces with friends and pool your money, you could own this auction. Just sayin...

I have no bids, but I've saved some previous Avatars that have been "temporarily" used around here, and are not currently in use, and thus are once again available to Uniquely Identify its wearer. Consider this my effort to encourage bidding.

Firstly, there's Plain, perfectly legal for All Avatars:
http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i274/yetanotherboardie/waffle_avatar12208_3gif.jpg
Okay, so maybe that's not quite exciting enough to really increase the bids. But Wait, There's More...

Here's Fancy, only worn by a Site Owner Mod for a very short time, and I was lucky to be online at the time and snatch a copy (if the size is seriously a problem, it can be shrunk down to a "normal" avatar size, so don't let that stop your bidding):

Mom has returned. Good heavens. I miss one afternoon and the sock puppets run amok.

My ruling: Sock Puppets may bid, but only if they have their own checking accounts and pay in Dollars. (and if they have more than one eye).

Therefore, the last acceptable bid is the Emperor of Wyoming for $35. Get ready to wear the pink tutu, Thunder Cat.

KTHXBAI.

Okay. Here's the thing. If I win the $27,000,000 Super7 Jackpot tonight, I will bid $10,000 for this auction item. If not, I will add $15 to the highest bidder's bid... just to know that I contributed to the humiliation of a dolt. Sound good?

What are the chances that I win the lottery? Really, really bad. But, hey... it could happen. This post is my word. BUT I HAVE TO WIN THE WHOLE $27M JACKPOT... or it's back down to $15.00.

I have spoken.

RT has promised:
Since the auction seems to be going so well for a certain group of people (the names of the guilty will eventually be found out) I think it's only fair of me to offer some flexibility. Instead of changing my avatar once for thirty days, I'll permit the winning group to choose five (5) avatars; each one to run a consecutive six (6) days each.

I have a bid of $200.
