More eBay Auctions
I got an email from the girl (not guy) selling the Air Guitar and Ring of Saturn on eBay. Turns out she has a few other items for sale, such as a Ticket to Heaven (in case you're worried about going to Hell), and the Answer to Life and the Universe. I guess she's mastering the art of the Strange eBay Auction. has a great collection of such eBay Oddities. Included are hot-sellers such as Ghost Poop and A Lie.
