Ha THE TEACHER was taught a lesson    

Jon Gosselin bought it with his kid's money! LOL

Probably some one who swept it up off a salon floor, and oh look, Elvis hair, next will be MJ's hair...unbelievable what people will buy.

Seriously wonder though, can hair be drug tested decades later? Did they say on ebay if it was proven in DNA testing to be his?

Or did his daughter buy it?

'Michael's hair'?? It's already happened! Only the story is even STRANGER! The producer from the Pepsi commercial when MJ was burned, kept some of his hair that fell out onto the floor after they put out the fire(what a winner, huh?!) & saved it all these years(1986). This freak-producer had it made into diamonds(from the carbon in the hair strands) & sold it!! Opportunistic b@stard or what?!! True story. LOL!
