    My jaw dropped when I first read this. It's still open now.

    OMG.

      Ditto on the jaw drop. But hello? He purchased Diana's hair on eBay? Riiiight. You know the line about a sucker born every minute? Start with Bompas, and continue with anyone buying this stuff. Sheesh.

      Funny. I think of pie as being more magical than jam.

        Maybe, but it is difficult to have a marketable shelf life for a pie. You can make the best pie, but it just won't taste very good after a week.

          Oh, of course, one must consider shelf life when determining the most magical food. Sorry, I forgot. After all, this is food as "art."

        I'm not sure what would be more insulting to Lady Di....that her hair was sold on ebay, or that "magical" hair jam only sells for $7 a jar.

            I keep thinking I've seen it all -- and then I'm proved wrong.

              True, but one doesn't eat amber.

                Or hairy jam. Nor would I wear a jar of it dangling around my neck. I thought the idiocy of this topic speaks for itself.
