6:30 AM PT — The listing has been taken down, though it’s unclear if the item sold or if they pulled it for a different reason.
Dick Cheney‘s embarrassment is about to become Amnesty International’s gain.
Sacha Baron Cohen and his show “Who Is America?” are auctioning off the fake waterboarding kit they got the former vice president to sign during a bit that was used to promote the show.
The listing — which is titled “ORIGINAL WATER BOARD KIT SIGNED BY VICE-PRESIDENT DICK CHENEY!!” — describes the kit by saying:
Unlike the cheap domestic water board kits you can buy on Amazon, this is a professional grade piece of military hardware. Fully functioning, it have seen many hours active use by me, both on the frontline of the War on Terror and also in my own home, where it has proved very effective at keeping my son, Eyal, in line. Indeed, if you too live in a bungalow, water boarding is a great alternative to the “naughty step.”
One of Cohen’s characters, Colonel Erran Morad, is listed as the seller but The Blast has confirmed Cohen and the show are the behind the auction.
