Julian Assange & Slavoj Zizek Auction Lunch Date

You have four days to bid on one of eight seats in a lunch date with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and Slovenian author Slavoj Zizek in London.

All the proceeds from this undoubtedly surreal dining experience will support WikiLeaks. The top bid is currently £4,100–how much would you pay to dine with this duo?

Here’s more from eBay: “The lunch will be from 12 – 3pm on Saturday 2nd July at one of London’s finest restaurants. The meal will be followed by a Frontline Club event from 4pm – 6pm at The Troxy in East London where these two formidable forces will be discussing the impact of WikiLeaks on the world and what it means for the future.” (Via Gawker)
