The State Of Oregon Is Selling An Enormous Used Cheeseburger

The state of Oregon is trying to unload an 89 pound cheeseburger. The description on the state's surplus auction site is priceless:   

Artificial cheeseburger with lettuce and tomato on a sesame seed bun. Used.

As of this writing, the current bid for this gem is $8.48 cents. Why is the state selling a giant shrink-wrapped cheeseburger? Trust me, I'd love to know. I have a call in to the Department of Administrative Services...

[UPDATE:  I discovered the origins of this behemoth burger and wrote about it here.]
