Sports enthusiasts put the “fan” in fanatic. So we guess it’s not too surprising that this Kansas man is trying to sell a piece of pizza supposedly bitten by Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes for $50. As the Facebook Marketplace post (under “Antiques & Collectibles”) reads, according to The Kansas City Star:

This half eaten piece of pizza was left behind by Patrick Mahomes at a Shawneee Mission Pizza Shoppe. Comes with a COA and a saliva test strip. I’ll toss in his used hand wipe and toothpick for free. Serious inquiries only, please.

That last line is the best part, although all the biological material is a bit puzzling. Would the eventual purchaser be trying to trace Mahomes’ ancestral history? Or perhaps clone him?

One major wrinkle, though: Mahomes says he’s never been to that pizza place:

Also, as many on Twitter pointed out, that pizza looks more like it came from a frozen package than a pizzeria. So despite this detailed “serious inquiries” post, we suggest you ask a few more questions before you fork over your hard-earned fifty bucks for someone else’s half-eaten pizza.

“Buy this slice of pizza that that was authenticated as not being eaten by Patrick Mahomes, by Patrick Mahomes himself! Seller will include a saliva test to find out who actually partially ate this slice of pizza. Was it another famous football player? Was it that NYC rat? The mystery is yours to solve!”
As an aside, thank you Gwen for the funny articles. I enjoy reading them, and they give me an outlet to post silly comments.
