More Weird eBay Auctions: Snow for Sale!

Here's another crazy eBay auction, this time they are auctioning snow. SNOW!

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...sPageName=WDVW

It's up to $55 with 3 days left! It just snowed this morning, better grab a handful.

Hmmm...since it's snowing outside right now, I think I'll save my money.

The closest that I've come to selling snow was keeping an icicle in the freezer for 6 months when I was 5.

As long as people keep talking about ridiculous ebay auctions, somebody will keep inventing new ones.



I'm going to try auctioning off my bad attitude, since I really don't need it.

As long as you can publicise your auction enough as a "funny auction" people will come and buy...every ridiculous auction has bids.

i heard about this last night on cnn.coms page, cracked me up that people were actually bidding on snow, better yet it doesnt come with a warranty and there is a 20 dollar shipping charge!

I've never heard snow hitting anything, and I've lived in New England all my life. Sounds fishy to me

Have to decide whether to bid on this or the tumor I heard about on the news.

There have been occasions of wind driven snow hitting my windows and making a noise. Then you know there is a real strong storm.

As P. T Barnum said there is a sucker born every minute. We are very lucky here in the Northern Hemisphere, the majority of us get snow for free.

Just to let ya know, those kind of links usually go in your signature if at all. Like that, you're at risk for being calling an advertiser and, as such, banned. Which is bad.

Well, if grilled cheese can sell and snow can sell, I wonder what else could sell... nose boogers?

I have an excess of that on my front lawn. Anyone want some, I'll be more than happy to get rid of it!!
I'll even throw in some free sunlight too, to make your cheap snow....oh yes...cheap rain!!
