JoePa’s Specs Sell For $9,000

I congratulate them on having to say “be careful with those!” to house guests for the rest of their lives.

For more than a decade, the Penn State Bakery has provided the Nittany Lion Inn with a massive, display-only gingerbread house during the holidays. This year’s design features about 50 pounds of dough and 100 pounds of icing.
The menorah, which is valued at about $1,800, was returned, but was damaged, according to the complaints.
