[Powderworks] Interesting E-bay Item - Bird Noises Diamond Pin

I can't imagine that the band members had the cash to do something so
frivolous at that point in their careers.  Maybe, the record company
might have done it - but I doubt the band would have made enough money
for the record execs at that time either - so the whole thing seems
fishy to me.  All I can say is, I won't be bidding on it anytime soon,
and I have no plans to make a new MO necklace with this as a theme!

On a similar subject, there's a copy of Willie up on Ebay.

Something about this just doesn't compute ... can any of the lurking
elect 
(Damien?) verify the diamond bird tale?  Like, who would have
commissioned 
these in the first place?

As for "a must for any serious Oils fan", phlbbbt!  Yes, must consume
and 
collect to prove my zeal and loyal worthiness.  Uh huh.
