Last week, we told you about a T-shirt printed with a Rob Ford caricature and signed by Margaret Atwood that was up for sale on eBay. (It was a ploy to raise funds and attract attention to Fanado, a start-up Atwood founded that helps fans connect with artists). In the final hours of the auction yesterday, the bidding jumped from $85 (US) to several thousand dollars—in the end the T-shirt ended up selling for a staggering $7,100 (US). Atwood may not be a big fan of the mayor, but it looks like she’s found a way to benefit from his hijinks. [eBay]
