Jimmy Kimmel Sells Autographed Rod Blagojevich Chair!

Of all the late night shows, Jimmy Kimmel does more bits relating to autographs. And he's at it again.

Last night, he showed a clip of Rod Blagojevich, the disgraced congressman, on a recent interview. Kimmel joked about him "selling his seat" and then he joked that he'd "sell the seat he was sitting on."

Kimmel showed all the other guests who have recently sat on it...Shaq, Mel Gibson, and "four foxes," which included Michael J. Fox and Megan Fox.

Blagojevich signed it, and Jimmy said the bidding is up to $3,000 on eBay.

I thought we were in a depressed economy... Was it at least a nice chair?

Well, I'm sure it was somewhat nice, as it's the chair that's used for guests. So, a chair like that isn't something that was on sale at the Furniture Depot. But it was certainly nothing special. But speaking of the bad economy, a guy on 570 AM this afternoon, said he sells autographs and memorabilia on eBay. That's his business...and he said it's down 60% because of the bad times.

Update: They said on Kimmel tonight, that bidding stops tomorrow. And it's up to $5,500. Guest David Alan Grier (who I consider one of the funniest men on the planet), said "I feel dirty sitting in it!" So, I guess it's the same chair they're continuing to use with current guests, until they sell it.
