I know you recognize this little guy!
Heck...nearly everyone on the planet almost immediately knows who this fuzzy, pink, sandal-wearing rascal is! Makes a good commercial, gets the point across, has become an American icon...all that is true!
Even though this little bunny is famous, I wouldn't think he is worth THAT much! I mean, I could think of a lot better ways to spend such a sum! How about you?
Energizer Bunny sales for $18,000 at auctionASSOCIATED PRESS

DALLAS — An Energizer Bunny has sold at auction for almost $18,000.
Dallas-based Heritage Auction Galleries says the bunny, one of the four original Energizer Bunnies, sold at auction Saturday in Beverly Hills, Calif., for $17,925, including the buyer's premium.
The buyer wanted to remain anonymous.
The auction house says the pink bunny with sunglasses that beat a drum in the commercials was one of the two in most of the television commercials for the batteries. The bunny is 25 inches from its feet to ears.
Now, it says that the "buyer wanted to remain anonymous"...! I wonder why? Could it be that he (or she) doesn't want anyone to know just how stupid they really are?
Or could it be that they didn't want us to know that this was a genuine case of "More Money Than Sense"? What a waste! A colossal waste!
Of course, this is only my humble opinion...and I'm sure that some folks will think I'm completely wrong! But you know what? That's OK! Everyone is entitled...everyone!
Now, my friends, let's get some coffee and sit outside for a bit.
