Famous phone number up for auction

It may be the most famous telephone number in popular culture, and it's for sale.

The number from the Tommy Tutone hit song "Jenny" - 867-5309, with the Philadelphia area code 267 - is being auctioned off on eBay.

Many so-called "Jenny" numbers were taken out of service in the early 80s, after the 1982 song prompted a national wave of phony phone calls to the number in various area codes.

The eBay seller is listed as a Jason Kaplan from Southampton, Pa.

After two days, bidding for this one was up to about $700. The auction ends August 4.
