Sold! To the Guy with the Comb-Over Hair

Learning a lesson from Donald Trump, celebrities who are planning to get married soon might want to have their guests sign non-disclosure agreement lest items from their weddings wind up for sale on eBay.

On the auction site you can find all sorts of trinkets from The Donald's third wedding: everything from a napkin embossed with the Trump family crest to a menu handed to guests at their tables.

You can also bid on a small "Wedding Guest Cake" which comes with the warning "EAT AT YOUR OWN RISK." Do you know what happens to butter-based frosting after two weeks in the poorly ventilated Mar-a-Lago basement?

I'm assuming these items were picked up by some of the waitstaff, bartenders and other service people who worked the wedding, but there could be another culprit. Does anyone know if Star Jones was invited?

The oddest item of the lot has to be "A PIECE OF LAND FROM TRUMP WEDDING 1/22/05," which features the following description:

BE THE FIRST ON YOUR BLOCK TO OWN A PIECE OF LAND WHERE DONALD TRUMP "HIRED" MELANIA KNAUSS ON JAN.22 2005, THIS IS AN AUTHENTIC ONE OF A KIND PIECE OF THE PROPERTY WHERE DONALD STOOD AND TOOK HIS VOWS. MAKE YOUR BIDS COUNT OR YOU WILL BE THE NEXT ONE TO HEAR "YOUR FIRED"!!!!

I'm fairly certain that if you win the auction, you'll be the only person on your block to own this, dare I say, souvenir.

Beneath the description, in smaller type:

***YOUR PIECE OF LAND WILL CONSIST OF GRASS CLIPPINGS AND LEAVES FROM BETHESDA BY THE SEA CHURCH WERE THE DONALD TOOK HIS VOWS***

Amazingly enough there is a bid of one dollar for this bag o' grass. The auction ends soon, so hurry! Don't let this treasure get away from you! And after you're done, check out my auctions which include a bridge in Brooklyn and a bag of moon dust from the Apollo mission which was so not actually taken from my building's incinerator.

Update: $2.25 on the bag of grass clippings and leaves with two hours to go!
