How brain-dead do you have to be to bid on something like this?

If it was as well done as this ; http://tiny.cc/62bd5

I'd buy it!

Whoever carved those faces and the eagle was an extremely talented artisan.

The bottle opener.... not so much!

Bethlehem, Pa.
From reading the description I got the impression that it was a briar rescue. It opens beer and the price of saving a nice carving from the fireplace is noble.

That's the best I can do off the top of my head.

Does that look like briar to anyone ? Just looks like some tree limb he cut in the backyard. I got the impression the seller doesn't know what briar is, except that its what pipes are made out of.
