You can sell almost anything—used socks, stained flip-flops—on eBay. Except a fake-urine-filled jar with a figurine of President Barack Obama in it.

You can sell almost anything—used socks, stained flip-flops—on eBay. Except a fake-urine-filled jar with a figurine of President Barack Obama in it.

That’s what conservative radio host Glenn Beck found out Tuesday when his “homage to Andres Serrano’s controversial photograph ‘Piss Christ’” was removed from the online auction site, the Daily Beast reported. The “art” was called "Obama in Pee Pee” and cost $25,000 (see the full segment here).

"It's all protected by this document," Beck said on his show, pointing to a framed Constitution. "So whether you're offended by this one or by this one, it sucks to be you, doesn't it?"

Beck left his daily Fox program in April 2011 after a “precipitous decline in ratings,” the Christian Science Monitor reported. Since then, Beck has taken his punditry and antics to TheBlaze TV, which he founded in September 2011. The network was picked up by the Dish Network in September. 

TheBlaze TV currently has 300,000 subscribers. And earlier this week, Beck signed a Clear Channel radio deal for $100 million, the Daily Beast reported

Following his failed eBay auction, Beck launched a Twitter account, @ObamaInPeePee, and some “Obama in Pee Pee” merchandise to help capitalize on his foray into art. 

“I really enjoyed seeing the Obama in Pee Pee,” LHARDY commented on an article on TheBlaze polling the community on its opinion on the piece. “As much as I do not like some of the art that is intentionally offensive. I agree with their right to produce and display such art.”

A female Lebanese news anchor was told to shut up—here's what she did instead
Rima Karaki is a Lebanese TV host who isn't afraid of a fight. Things got heated Monday when Karaki was interviewing Hani Al-Seba'i about the phenomenon of Christians joining Islamic groups like ISIS. Al-Seba’i is a Sunni scholar who fled to London after he was sentenced in an Egyptian court to 15 years in prison for being a part of the Egyptian Islamic Jihad. The United Nations considers the group to be an affiliate of al Qaeda.

Glenn Beck posts an Anonymous-style video
There’s no evidence anyone hacked Glenn Beck’s YouTube account lately, so it looks like Beck really is behind “Anonymous For Good,” the bizarre Anonymous-style video that got almost 11,000 views within a day of being uploaded on Jan. 24. (He also links to it on his own site.)
