Salient wins garlic naan, Brad Pitt cloning to go ahead

The TradeMe auction of Brad Pitt’s half-eaten garlic naan ended last Tuesday, with Salient staffers bidding the top price of $8.50.

The naan, which was purchased with the staffers’ own money, will be delivered to Salient this week. The seller apologised for the delay but said that there was a good reason for it.

“…you will be very happy with it when you do get it. It’s quite the culinary miracle.”

The seller had earlier expressed doubt in whether Salient staffers would still want the naan, which was described as a “mouldy, fly-blown piece of filth”.

As reported in Salient last week, staffers plan to create an army of Brad Pitt clones from DNA found on the naan. It is Pitt’s DNA, not the state of the naan itself, that is important.

The naan is said to be a leftover from Brad Pitt’s rumoured whirlwind tour of Wellington late last month, during which he was reported to have been sighted dining at an Indian restaurant.
