I Don't Think It Is Him...

Every now and then you see something that makes you laugh, and then makes you sad. Kind of like the blues. Case in point. Here is a seller on eBay that has ten feedbacks, which gives me a lot of confidence, trying to sell a photo, which he claims is a picture of Robert Johnson. The Robert Johnson, the one and only Robert Johnson.

I guess all the old bluesmen kind of looked a like. The gentelmen pictured may not even be a bluesman ;).

But this seller seems to think so, so much so that he wants to charge you, get this $795,000.00 for a picture that he thinks might be of Robert Johnson.

Supposed Robert Johnson Picture on eBay

Thanks to the Brooklyn Ski Club blog for pointing this out. He has an mp3 up of the Robert Johnson tune, "Sweet Home Chicago" as well as the two known photos of Robert Johnson.

OK, now that I have had my laugh for today, I guess I can go back to feeling sad
that there is someone out there who thinks they could actually sell a photo like this.
