Top Spot of the Week: eBay's "Ring"
A wedding ring--carrying a big "It" diamond--falls off a woman's finger and down the kitchen sink drain, winding its way through the pipes of the apartment building as we see other residents with their "It" items purchased on eBay. Ultimately the treasured ring goes through the city's plumbing and is dischared out into a sea full of fish. Cut to the original woman and her hubby eating salmon for dinner. After taking a big bite, she spits out the "It" ring.
