    When we heard that handwritten lyrics to Bob Dylan's "Like a Rolling Stone" sold for over $2 million at an auction, our office erupted in a chorus of "WTF?" That's a lot of scratch!

    At first, we were like, "Who has that kind of money to blow on when there are tons of cats and dogs languishing in shelters and kids who need food?"

    Granted, a collector or a bidder can spend their money on whatever they want, but it still got us thinking, since it's so much loot to spend on a musical item.

    So we had to ask this question – what do you think of the bidder who shelled out that kinda of scratch for a set of lyrics? Is it ridic? Worth it? None of your or our bidness? Go ahead, comment below.
