That has to be the worse example of photoshopping I HAVE EVER SEEN ON A PRO WEBSITE. I'm spending 0.31 a month for this? :)

What if the guy's a recluse? Waste of money.

It doesn't matter if the guy is a recluse because the story will guarantee some publicity for the winning bidder. If it doesn't go too high, it could be well worth it for someone. Of course, after this story is dead, it won't work for anyone else.

I'm with Sanenet on this: the real story is not the guy with the forehead for sale, but the fabulous BBC graphics department which has once again breached the depths of incompetence with its accompanying "guy with some text floating vaguely near his head.jpg". I think even I could do a better job than that, and that's saying something...

he's just trying to attract the attention of that online casino that has been buying crazy items off ebay. prob hoping that they'll pay him off big for it since they've paid to tatoo streakers in the past.

$37,375 for a month? I'll shave my head to give me a bigger forehead for that kind of money. ;)

Not only are people selling their heads, but also their Pregnant bellies [cgi.ebay.com] as well on ebay.

What next? The moon, and I don't mean the one in the sky either. ;)

> What next? The moon [...]

Hahaha!

So, what's the weather like in South Carolina? (As in, what is the likelihood of her walking around bare-bellied in what I imagine is winter?)

The ways people will whore themselves for a buck/baht/rand...
