    Somebody will buy it but at what price? I hope that the successful bidder owns a bloodhound ... if not, the "winner" is one weird puppy for sniffing out such a deal.

    I believe that. The powers-that-be at ebay must allow the most alluring items to go right to the top.

    Whatever happened with that auction for the bus tour with the seller's creepy drugged out brother-in-law that always had a tin-foil hat on?

    I've actually seen similar things to this on sale in "real" shops. Not necessarily scorpions, but certainly different types of insects and worms.

    Three stockings and shoes ... that'll seal the deal for someone. And to think the kidney stone I passed two years ago might have found a good home had I only had the foresight to think of ebay. I shall be far more mindful if I ever have a hemorrhoid removed.

    Those farts in a jar are classic. I can't believe somone actually did that, and posted it up for sale. :D

    Although not especially weird, but fairly optimistic, I saw an auction a while ago for one of those really cheapo cheese graters (half plastic half metal) that claimed it "had only been used a couple of times". £2 for a used cheese grater? Tempting....:p

    i've seen far worse. try going to college for two years and doing a computing course with people that would rather search for... actually i don't think i could say it here but just think south park references to cartman's mum and certain german movies...

    i really liked the 'ltd edition'. even eating the same stuff, you never seem to get the same results. cool stuff. don't want to bid though :eek:

    once I found a grain of salt. it was up for bid at $0.01. I laughed, and wondered what the world had come to. Selling salt to naive people? Not my cuppa tea.

    Going through trunks and junk for Spring cleaning, I found a piece of the Berlin Wall sample wrapped in a brown paper bag we had kept. This thread reminded me of it, so I went on eBay to check. Sure enough. The latest piece of Berlin Wall sold at US$9.99 just a while ago.
