This auction is accessible from an Easter egg in the Strong Bad Email "english paper". It features a partially eaten breakfast burrito, formerly belonging to Strong Bad, which Homestar Runner is attempting to sell. The Cheat is currently the highest bidder.

You are bidding on an almost-mint condition Breakfast Burrito. There is some chipping, a few scrapes, and some minor eating damage (see photo). It used to belong to this guy Strong Bad. He's some type of wrestle man. You kids like that kinda stuff, right? So start biddin'.

The Breakfast Burrito is made up of eggs, tomatoes, bacon, onions, cheese, and even those fancy yellow peppers I think. Or maybe that's lemon jello. Either way you win.

Thanks for checking out my auction. (NO THE PLATE IS NOT FOR SALE!! JEEZ!!!)

Hallo! Thank you all the time for buying this missing page from instruktor book for very very foreign videomachine game 'WHERE AT DID YOU THE EGG PUT?!'. Is page 13, very thrilling page for you, number one show!

Page has many crumples (I DID NOT DO!) and torn one side. Also, it has scribble notes. I have translate the foreign letters very well so that you can read to your American baby wen it does not sleep. Saying this: FIND OUT: WHO IS LYING? WHO TELLS THE TRUTH? WHO HAS AN EGG?

Sorry for the great photographs. I took with 5 of my best kamerafone! Mobile is the future, my main man!
