I have one of these bad boys in my possession—I have for about a week now—and something inside told me not to eat it yet. Turns out my gut was right: This thing is not to be eaten, because people are offering up top dollar for it.

And that, they did. After 75 bids (10 of them eclipsing $10,000), somebody paid $12,000 USD for the big orange tortilla chip, sitting in a ceramic egg next to my desk as I type this.
