  • Ebay anecdotes

    Hi guys,

    I'm writing thi small article on ebay and am looking for anecdotes on stuff and services that have been sold, or been tried to sell. i know of the slave ship, virginity and remember there was a hilarious wedding dress -type of action (anyone remember this in more detail?). I've also seen all the "8mm footage from 12.07.1972, Nevada, starting bid $10000000" -type of scams.

    I also know cherie blair's handle and someone also told me tarantino's handle but i forgot it.

    so please guys spill the beans and help me. i'm hangover and deadlines approaching fast...

        some nutter trying to sell films with something that could look like a ufo. government denying knowledge and all that business. i remember the &quot;copy&quot; reading: people who were there know what is on the film. and that&#39;s all . no bids.

              i think one went for 15 dollars or so. whether the money arrived is another matter&#33;

                These two articles should be useful to you Mokka:

                http://womencentral.net/weird-ebay-sales.html

                http://abcnews.go.com/sections/us/Wo...ffiles231.html

                According to the 2nd story, there&#39;s actually been a book published on the subject called &#39;Found on Ebay&#39;. I wonder if it mentions any Boogiejuice auctions, they&#39;re pretty unbelieveable eh?

                I find it hard to believe that you could actually purchase a human head on the bay though, shrunken tribesman stylee or otherwise&#33;
                Let him have the lot for £2.00 - we were only going to throw 'em out anyway...

                  The bucket of water was a good one.

                              Apparently they said he wouldn&#39;t be able to hack it.
