Betty's fountain was a different size, a different design, a different make, had no publicity on the glass and dated from a different period. Other than that Larsbogart, it was EXACTLY identical to this one, and you're quite right to blame her for this latest outrage. She's also responsible I believe for the poor dialogue in the new Star Wars movie, for Bush's Florida election win, and for the worrying disintegration of the Ross Ice Shelf.

A measly 2G's? Should have bought it, it's up to $3300, and Frenchman is the current high bidder. The guy on the auction says there are only 3 in existence, and the other 2 were shipped to hotels, so wonder where Betty got hers?

A measly 2 grand and, of course, a scam.

how much was she wanting Lars? $4000, one of your kidneys, and obligatory review of it on the forum?

Holy fark! I think Betty tried to sell me that same fountain at one time. I'm serious. Except two of the spigots needed repaired. Guess what her price was...?
Do you think....?

The absinthe fountain auction has nearly 3 days to go. Oxygenée -- the Coke, no the Shasta -- is back in first place.

Former front runner Oxygenée1 -- the Shasta -- has had his bids CANCELLED by the eBay administration. Har!

I noticed there was an Artemis bidding as well. Probably my evil twin.

Accept no substitutes! Oxygenée is Coke; Oxygenée1 is Shasta.

Incidentally, there's a pimple medication named Oxy 5. Pity the eBay bidder who adopts THAT identity.

Imagine yourself in Qatar, a harem at your feet, your platinum golf clubs safe in their gold mesh bags, your 220 Rolls-Royces and 650 polo ponies, and you ... absinthe fountainless! Disconsolate!

Actually, the new high bidder on this fountain is not me, oxygenee, but a new bidder who just registered with eBay this morning, called, by extraordinary coincidence "oxygenee1". Now why did he choose that name.....? He (or she) gives his address as Qatar, which as we all know is a Gulf state well known for its enthusiastic absinthiana collectors.

Never a dull moment....
