There are limited ways to make money while you're still in high school. Most of the time, you're either lucky enough to be bankrolled by your parents, or you have to get a crappy part time job like the rest of us. It's rare to get that golden ticket of full financial freedom, but one Australian teen looks like she might be part of the way there. The reason? She's auctioning an inflated Dorito.
Displaying her find in a video, Tiktoker @mommymilkerza asked her followers for advice on what to do with her rare find, suggesting that "they should start making these". After multiple people urged her to follow in the footsteps of the Among Us BTS chicken nugget, she listed the item on Ebay and was shocked to find the bids quickly rolling in.
At the time of writing, there's more than four days left on the bidding and the price has reached the equivalent of over $73,000 USD. With fourteen prospective owners in the race to win, there's still plenty of time for the sale to get even crazier. There's probably a few sobering lessons in this whole story somewhere, but the main takeaway is that these days, it really pays to take a long hard look at your chips instead of mindlessly stuffing them in your mouth.
