Well, one way you can prove to others you have money to burn is by spending thousands of dollars on a Cheeto. Yep, that should do the trick.

For some reason that will probably never be known to any sane human, one eBay user actually paid $99,900 for a Cheeto — a Cheeto that resembled the most famous gorilla ever: Harambe. You know, Harambe. The same gorilla that was referenced to when a chemistry teacher wrote “Dicks out for Harambe” on a student’s test, and the same gorilla that a bunch of New Zealand dedicated their quiz win to. Yep, that Harambe.

So apparently someone found a Flamin’ Hot Cheeto that looked a hell of a lot like the deceased gorilla — so much so that this genius decided to put it up for sale on eBay. Take a look at the Cheeto below.

This genius started bidding for this Cheeto at just $11.99 — about 11 dollars too much. Well guess what? Bidding closed with a winning bid of $99,900. Holy hell.

Well the man or woman who purchased this got to take home this.

This person must be filthy rich. But then again, what do you do with that Cheeto now? Eat it? Display it? Use it as proof that you’re completely insane? Who knows.
