Miraculous Sloth popcorn pops up on eBay
A reader passed along this link to an eBay auction. Up for sale is a piece of popcorn that supposedly looks like Sloth from The Goonies. From the auction page:
"You could benefit from the buttery taste of this lovely item unlike myself (which I take no responsibility for) or keep it to add to your Goonies memorable collection!! I have enjoyed the Sloth popcorn for sometime and it has been the centerpiece of a number of conversations and brought much joy to my household, which you too can enjoy!"
Here's a pic:
I'd say it looks more like Slimer from Ghostbusters than Sloth. Nevertheless, the resemblance is closer than that of the Virgin Mary toast. An online casino supposedly bought it for $28,000 last year. With a little over nine days to go, bidding on the Sloth popcorn currently stands at one penny.
In other Goonies news, "Banjo" wrote in to say the film's characters made an apperance on "The Family Guy" last Sunday.
