Um... ewwwwwwwwww: EBay pulls Glenn Beck’s ‘Obama in Pee Pee’ after bids top $11,000

By Susan Duclos

Let's start by saying the urine in the "Obama in a pee pee jar" was fake (it was beer) and go from there, but still, ewwwwwwwwww.

EBay has removed an item put up by Glenn Beck called "Obama in a Pee Pee Jar." As seen in the captured screen shot above, from Washington Examiner, the bids which would have gone to charity, reached over $11,000.

According to Beck the jar is "art," his reaction to reports of a painting of President Obama as Jesus Christ. The auction was posted on eBay with bidding beginning at $5.00.

A link to the eBay auction was posted on Beck's website, explaining that the auction would benefit Mercury One and their Hope for the Holidays fund.

A report on The Blaze website explained that the urine is "fake," and his "art" is only part of his effort "to highlight the hypocrisy of those who would shout in defiance at defacing the image of a sitting U.S. president, but not that of an image so sacred to Christianity."

Update: It appears that the item has been removed from eBay

Update II: A high level Glenn Beck source tells me that eBay pulled "Obama in Pee Pee" not Beck.

Update III: According to eBay the auction was pulled because it "contains urine"
"You listed an item that contains urine," read the note from eBay to Beck's Charity (now posted on the Blaze.) "We do not allow the sale of bodily waste. Please do not relist."

This definitely gets the title of "Ridiculous item of the day!"
