The year 2016 may be in the rear view mirror, but one of the biggest stories of the year just won’t seem to go away. (Not to be confused with the biggest story of the year which is definitely not going away anytime soon.) Harambe, the Cincinnati Zoo gorilla that was killed after a small boy fell into his enclosure and later turned into a cruel yet admittedly somewhat hilarious meme, is back in the news for a predictably absurd reason.

In an eBay auction that ended early Tuesday morning, someone bid nearly $100,000 for not just any Cheeto, but a “Flamin’ Hot Cheeto” that supposedly looks just like Harambe. No, really.

Here’s a closer look at the Harambe Cheeto, so you can determine for yourself whether or not the likeness was worth a cool $99,900.

From the item’s description:

I opened up a bag of Flamin Hot Cheetos and as soon as I looked inside I came across this unique Cheetos that looks like Harambe the gorilla.

This item is one of a kind!

It measures up to about 1 1/2 inches in length.

This item up for bid is only for this unique Cheetos, bag not included.
This makes a great collectible for anyone who appreciates rare items!

Nearly 100 grand and the bag isn’t even included! You know what they say, a fool and his money, something something.
