The other day, I bought a stick on eBay. A really big stick. Actually, it's 44" long and made out of latex and a metal tube. This stick was "supposedly" used in the Tim Burton Planet of the Apes movie. It came from a prop warehouse and arrived with a beautiful, signed color photocopy of a Certificate of Authenticity.
