    What is the Weirdest thing you've seen on Ebay?

    What's the absolute strangest thing you've seen someone selling on ebay?

    For example, I once found a guy selling his own boogers for a penny.

    Anyone else see any strange stuff?

    Somoene posted a link to buy a britney spears fart in a tupperware container somewhere on this forum I seem to remember. Not sure how you'd validate the authenticity of something like that though!

    Man I've seen so much but the one that sticks out in my mind is the dude selling the tea pot where he's reflected in it naked.

    Oh and the recently divorced dude selling his ex wife's wedding dress and he's modeling it, that one was getting like 18K hits between refreshes on it, last I looked I think it was like 6.3 million hits on his auction counter, yoiks!

    The woman who was selling her 8 year old daughter was pretty wild.

    I'm sure it was a joke or a publicity stunt.

    Why is it odd to sell the sole of a shoe?

    I saw a guy selling his family before ebay pulled it off. The dumbest thing I saw was that mike kid selling the legal papers when he got sued by microsoft.

    I saw a "ghost in a jar" that was for sale. It had this whole story along with it .... and lit was supposed to be a real ghost and all haunted and whatnot ... It was funny, but some people took it really serious. I have n oclue what it went for, but it was tens of thousands if my memory servers me. (about 1.5 years ago)

    totally weird !

    This is one of the funniest things I have ever seen. Wedding Dress . It's kind of long but well worth the time to read it. Especially if you have been through a bad divorce.

    I saw someone selling a 'haunted stick'. It was a rather large twig that seemed to be standing up on it's own on one end, and the guy photographed it and sold it for a good sum, I remember

    hahahaha




    The most unusual thing i saw was a 19 year old uni student from britain selling her virginity to finance her studies. She got about 17 thousand in bidding. ebay took it off but she managed to have contact with a few people who asked her a question through ebay.

    she went through with it and met one of the men in a hotel.

    i read this in a uk newspaper, i think the Sun... about 2 months ago.

    Surprised no one has mentioned the couple that auctioned off the naming of their child....
    It's time to kick back, pop in a From Autumn to Ashes CD, and relax.....

    I have seen a piece of poo once and read about a cough drop from the terminator himself. I am sure if you look up celebrity parifinalia you would find some pretty weird stuff from their trash and such.
