Two fun Ebay head-scratchers

It's not a ticket, it's the empty folder the ticket came in.  Seven hundred dollars.  https://www.ebay.com/itm/265140253562

It's a picture of Bill Cullen, but you have to guess what it looks like.  https://www.ebay.com/itm/164956211330
This has been another installment of Matt Ottinger's Masters of the Obvious.
Stay tuned for all the obsessive-compulsive fun of Words Have Meanings.

And I though the Whammy watch guy was insane. :)

(Speaking of, the watch is still for sale. $750.)
