Ebay is a great place, full of almost cheaper than average new stuff and really shitty old stuff. Sometimes you can find a bargain, although this is getting harder and harder as time goes on and the place becomes just a general online shop rather than it’s initial action house for the anybody.
Though what is most fun about Ebay is some of the bloody weird stuff that you can find on their and strange listings. Not to mention the odd crazy that not only wants to buy something from you but also wants to make a friend. Someone I know had an email from a self proclaimed ‘Witch’ who was buying one of her items letting her know that she likes to walk the moors at night with her cats.
This vat or strange people and stuff throws up some great finds. Here are some examples of why Ebay is the perfect way to waste your time.
Rubber Michael Jackson Mask : truly scary but yours for £8.49. Luckily is ‘Includes attached black hair’ which is a real selling point and even better, one size fits all.
Crazy Green Hologram Sunglasses : You will remember these from your youth no doubt and now you can introduce them to your adult years! It’s ok because the advert states that these glasses can be worn ‘by men and women of all ages’ They make you look pretty crazy and are great for freaking out tired or inebriated friends. These are £5.69 and we are assured by the seller that they are ‘ the funniest product we sell’.
Russian Strawberry Seeds : If you were wondering where to get your Russian strawberry seeds from Ebay is the place. We have always wanted to grow our own yellow strawberries and now that dream can become a reality for £1.79 and free shipping.
Blood Bath Shower Gel : It’s O positive and gets you squeaky clean. If you have this in your shower people are just going to think you’re weird, and you probably are. But why not by it for a squeamish friend and laugh. If you want to take it a step too far prick it with a pin so when they hang it in the shower it covers them.
A Human Skull : Because every home needs one.
