In an effort to quell the insane amount of financial difficulties of the state, Ahnuld and company are setting up a 2-day auction. I really wish I was making this up. From ABC News:
As part of the “Great California Garage Sale,” the state of California is selling off hundreds of items the state doesn’t need anymore — computers, old desks, office supplies, used cars — and confiscated items, including jewelry, a racing bike, a surfboard, and an antique piano.
The main auction itself, featuring some 500 cars and a vast quantity of knickknacks and accessories of assorted value, will take place this Friday and Saturday in Sacramento.
But the state is getting the bidding — and the online buzz — rolling by listing some items early on Craig’s List and eBay.
This is just fucking embarrassing. The rest of the country already thinks Californians are a bunch of hippies, and handling our financial problems just like a college doper would is sure to only help that stereotype. If Arnold starts calling winning bidders with “bro, that lampshade’s worth at least 25”, I’m moving.
