One eBay seller’s epic quest to rid himself of the world’s last remaining one-gallon jug of McDonald’s McJordan barbecue sauce has come to an end. The Daily News reports that the seller, a former fast-food franchisee, will say only that the unidentified buyer is “from Chicago” and purchased the sauce for its full $9,995 price tag. We’d like to think the buyer is a billionaire playboy philanthropist who’s probably just going to put the McJordan sauce, which expired in 1992, into one of those arctic bunkers built to contain thousands of years of nuclear decay, but we could be wrong.
