Rick and Morty is known for its scatological humor. Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland do not shy away from twisting around topics such as space orgies and alien testicles. It takes a certain kind of audience to find the laughs in their controversial kind of humor — but look, sometimes we can admittedly go overboard.
The world was in on the joke when people went crazy over the McDonald’s 1998 special edition Mulan Szechuan dipping sauce after the Rick and Morty Season 3 premiere on April 1. Fans went as far as to create a petition for McDonald's to bring back the special sauce. But McDonald's refused.
However, someone was smart enough to post an unopened packet of the sauce on eBay, and things get even crazier. A bidding war broke out, and one lucky person purchased the item for a whopping $14,700!
Bizarrely, that's nothing compared to the latest Rick and Morty-related eBay bid.

If you think spending that amount of money for some old packet of sauce is a lot of cash, then look at what this is selling for on eBay:
This Funko Pop! figure of Mr. Meeseeks is fetching some major Benjamins for this rare little defect. If you are a super-fan of the #RickAndMorty show, this is your chance to get this once-in-a-lifetime toy. But you have to hurry.
