Scarlett Johansson's used tissue gets $5,300



Tbdscarlettjohansson122408 Remember that used tissue Scarlett Johansson was selling on eBay? We know, we tried to forget as well, but the good news is it fetched $5,300 for food charity USA Harvest. Not that we'd really want to eat after getting it.

To jog the memory, ScarJo was on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno last week talking about how she had caught a cold from Samuel L. Jackson. When Leno gave her a tissue to blow her nose, she announced the plan to get some cash for it.

Final bidding for the snotty souvenir apparently reached fever pitch with moments to go on Monday, with snipers driving up the price $1,200 in the closing minutes. The site says 83 bids came in from anonymous do-gooders, but it still creeps us out to think what the winner really wants it for.
