    You can buy mayonnaise in bulk, or an intimidating bundle of paper towels, but did you know that for a few hours yesterday, you were able to buy a "Conor Oberst of Bright Eyes Signed Acoustic Guitar" on the Costco website? Yes, for $899.99, you too could have a "rich, full tone," "a natural spruce top" and "a rosewood bridge" all lovingly blessed by the Sharpie of the alleged new Dylan.

    Unfortunately, however, the item is no longer available. Oberst's publicist said that "no member of Bright Eyes knowingly signed anything for Costco" and that the musician's legal team is investigating how Costco got the guitar(s). After thinking about this for awhile, we can't help but notice the word "knowingly" slipped into statement. The only possible explanation here is that maybe Conor drunkenly wandered into the wholesale megastore and accidentally slipped in the guitar section with a marker in hand? Possible?
