Want Jenny's number?
It'll cost you more than all the royalties Tommy TuTone earned!
That famous number from the 80's: "8-6-7-5-3-0-9" is on the eBay auctioning block!

Always a staple of any radio station's "Friday Night 80's" program, the number has recently been heard on tv commercials (although I don't remember what the ad was hawking.)

Recent changes to cellular telephony laws, namely number portability, has made this transaction possible. The current owner of the number will transfer Jenny's New York area phone number to the winner of the auction. The incredible part? How much the winner will be paying... the current bid is in excess of $80,000.00!

In the song, Tommy TuTone said he had her number on the wall. Given the current price, I'm thinking vault.

If you're interested in placing a bid (or just being one of the 30+ thousand visitors to the eBay page) you can see the auction page here. But hurry, Jenny's number will only be up for grabs until February 22nd.
