snipshot_1hdg0wn7a2.jpg“I’ve already saved the world. How hard could saving the children be?” So quips Stephen Colbert, host of The Colbert Show on Comedy Central. Stephen will be auctioning off the portrait above the fireplace on the show (which features Colbert standing in front of…a portrait of Colbert) this coming October 27th to benefit the charity ‘Save The Children’.

The show recently celebrated its one year anniversary, and Stephen thought it might be a great idea to ‘give back’ a piece of himself to the ‘Colbert Nation’. From the Ebay Auction:

“The portrait, which depicts Stephen standing by his fireplace and in front of a previous portrait, will be replaced with a new portrait, which depicts Stephen standing by his fireplace, in front of a previous portrait, in front of a previous portrait. At least one critic has already heralded the Stephen Colbert Portrait Series as “the equivalent of the Genius Grant, the Fibonacci Sequence, and ‘The DaVinci Code’ combined.”

Good luck bidding — if the current price is to be believed, the portrait is already up to $99 million dollars! Is this for real? Check it out here!

    That $99 million was retracted, but it’s still at $30 million. What? And why do people bid against themselves? It can’t be for real, can it? I’ll be interested to see what happens here.

    I knew it was too good to be true..! Oh well, with nine days left, hopefully the bidding will result in a big fat check for the children.
