Another hoax on ebay!  This time, its Macbeth, from shakespeares play!

A definite hoax.  Some people get off on this, sad, but funny.

Yeah, EBay’s gonna pull that for a WIDE number of reasons…

For one, they don’t allow selling of souls, spirits, or any other ‘body parts’.

For two, there’s absolutely no way the buyer could confirm that they have received what was promised, nor the seller confirm delivery of anything but a jar. Certificate of authenticity? Authenticated by *who*?

For three… Fictional characters are not known to leave behind ghosts. There’s a few that should have died long, long ago, but that’s closer to being a zombie or lich, not a ghost.

I give it a D-Minus.

Although Macbeth wasn’t fictional.  His life was highly fictionalised by Shakespeare, but he was a real person.

Mostly

This is funny stuff. I wonder if anyone was actually naive enough to fall for it. My favorite Ebay auction that I seen was when someone was selling Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubarak. When I seen the add, there were already 5 bids, and it was at 4 bucks. I couldn’t stop laughing when I seen that.
Does anyone know anything about the milo academy? I would apreciate any information you can give me. Thanks.
