Ah ha

Readers may remember my uncertainty as to whether the Give it Back site (which advocates the return of the Statue of Liberty to the French) was serious or satire, given that it didn’t really seem to succeed in either category.

Well, reader Mike Beers has figured it out: it’s neither. It was a damn marketing ploy. The domain is now up for bid on eBay (current high bid: $14.50).

In the past week there has been more than 100,000 visitors!!!

This domain can be your ticket to success

And for all those that wanted this site to be taken down..Here is your chance to buy it and do what you wish with it!

So there you have it.
