  • Sacha
    Baron Cohen
    had former vice president Dick Cheney sign a
    “waterboard kit” on his Showtime series, “Who Is America?” on
    Sunday.
  • The signed water jug was briefly available for sale on
    eBay following the show, and bids for it reportedly reached as
    high as $3,801, with all proceeds going to Amnesty
    International.

The former vice president Dick Cheney appeared in an interview on
Sacha Baron Cohen’s Showtime series, “Who Is America?,” on
Sunday.

At the end of the segment, Cohen’s character, an
Israeli “anti-terror expert,”
 asked Cheney to sign a
“waterboard kit” that consisted of a single plastic water jug,
and that jug was briefly
available for sale on eBay
following the show on
Sunday. 

“Well, that’s a first. That’s the first time I’ve ever
signed a water bottle used for waterboarding. Very valuable,”
Cheney said on the show after signing the kit.

The eBay page for the waterboard kit contained the
following description, according to
Deadline
:

“Boker Tov, my name Colonel Erran Morad.

Here is a rare opportunity to own a WATER BOARD BOTTLE SIGNED BY
the Godfather of the sport – American war hero and all-round
mensch, VICE-PRESIDENT DICK CHENEY

Unlike the cheap domestic water board kits you can buy on Amazon,
this is a professional grade piece of military hardware. Fully
functioning, it have seen many hours active use by me, both on
the frontline of the War on Terror and also in my own home, where
it has proved very effective at keeping my son, Eyal, in line.
Indeed, if you too live in a bungalow, water boarding is a great
alternative to the ‘naughty step’.

The bottle is made from Military Grade High Density
Polyethylene (HDPE), meaning that as well as Water Boarding, it
can also be used to Dr. Pepper Board, Clorox Board or even Urine
Board potential terrorists or annoying neighbors.”

Yahoo News
notes
that bids for the jug went as high as $3,801
before it was sold, with all proceeds going to Amnesty
International. 

Cohen’s satirical show has
duped a number of notable people and politicians
, including
former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin and Vermont
Senator Bernie Sanders, into appearing as unsuspecting guests on
the series, while Cohen wears a variety of
disguises.
