    Christina and Arianna Huffington thank you for your generous donation. Now where's their coffee?!?

    How much would you pay for an internship at the Huffington Post?

    That's right, we said PAY.

    Forget a paying internship. Forget working for free. You're going to have to fork over more than $13,000 if you want to intern at HuffPost.

    Oh, and did we mention you'd only be there for two or three months?

    At least you get to pick which office you'd work at -- New York or D.C.

    Incredibly, so far 10 people have bid on the internship, which is "valued" at $500, on online auction site charitybuzz.com. HuffPost founder Arianna Huffington donated the internship.

    What do you get for your money?

    Jumpstart Your Career in the Blogsphere With An Eye Opening Internship at The Huffington Post in New York or Washington

    Terms: Includes: a two-three month internship at The Huffington Post in NYC or D.C. Must be at least 18 years old. NYC is the main office and D.C. is the political office. Winner can choose which location they would like.

    That's about as much of a description as you'll get.

    The leading bid right now is from "Luisacb" at $13,000. It seems "Luisacb" also bid $18,000 earlier this month on a visit to the set of the TV show House, but lost out to a winning bid of $20,500.

    The minimum next bid on the HuffPost internship is $15,500. Bidding ends May 28, so you still have time to search your couch cushions for some cash.
