(Newser) – For some reason, eBay didn't want to sell a piece of "art" by Glenn Beck dubbed "Obama in Pee Pee." Beck debuted the piece—a mason jar holding an Obama figurine submerged in Beck's "urine," which he says is really beer—on his show last night, as a reaction to a piece of actual art depicting a crucified Obama. Beck took that piece as a comparison between Obama and Jesus Christ, and meant his own piece as a reference to "Piss Christ," a famous image of Christ submerged in urine, Mashable reports.

Beck then listed "Obama in Pee Pee" on eBay, saying any proceeds would go to charity. In less than an hour, bidding hit $11,000—but by this morning, it had been removed, with eBay emailing Beck to inform him it does not "allow the sale of bodily waste." Of course, Beck took to Twitter, where the hashtag #ObamainPeePee quickly went viral, with tweets pouring in from both supporters ("Stop censorship!") and opponents ("Why is no one getting this man mental health services?").

I guess this fool is still trying to make it big with the rest of the big boys but he's getting nutter. He's been kicked off many media outlets and now this.What a stupid guy ?

I think poop would have been more appropriate and symbolic of how he has put ALL of us into a steaming pile of poop.
