Baby Needs A New Pair Of Shoes?

From Sun Pregnant belly ad gets $4,000 on eBay.

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. -- A woman selling advertising on her pregnant belly will receive $4,050 from the highest eBay auction bidder, Golden Palace Casino.

Amber Rainey will have the online casino's Web site temporarily tattooed to her stomach Thursday. It will remain until she delivers her first child, due on March 21.

Rainey didn't think her belly would fetch much as advertising space, but the casino has a record of unusual buys in online auctions, including paying $28,000 for a grilled cheese sandwich that bears the image of the Virgin Mary.

Rainey has received national attention as her eBay auction page received more than 50,000 hits. Still, she said she was surprised by the final bid price and other possible perks.

Whats next? Fat people selling advertising on their bloated stomachs in the summertime? Well it looks like the job market might get a big pick up according to the obesity epidemic we have here in the States.

How about selling advertising on the side of your car?
