Porcelain Doll Possessed by the Dead
image Someday I'm going to get tired of checking out the haunted things for sale on eBay, but not yet (I'm easily amused). So here's the latest haunted offering. It's a Porcelain Doll Possessed By the Dead. I've got to hand it to the seller. That's a spooky looking doll. And the story that accompanies it is pretty good as well.

Yheah, that looks terrifying, hahaha.

Maybe whoever put up the auction decided to do their own "Chucky" creation, only with their doll wearing a bunny suit.

I have a paperclip here at work possessed by the past-life ghost of Shirley McClain. It tells me that it used to be a nail used to crucify a criminal in ancient Rome. I see no reason to doubt it's story.

You know, that person has a load of haunted items for sale, allegedly having belonged to her great uncle.
The stories... well, I could think of better ones. They're not even *trying* to be plausible.
They're all 'they say' this, and 'supposedly' that. I dunno. I want these people to put a bit of effort into their weirdness.
Yaknow?
And yes, I was bored enough at work to read all their auctions.
*sigh*

Even more amazing is the several hundred dollars that the items have been bid up to.

I had a great idea! They should turn eBay into a weblog by allowing people to post comments on items!

Oh, my gosh, John! If eBay did that, do you think it might affect their profits, any? Good idea, though.

Sometimes the most innocent of things can be the most dangerous, but yes it dose look fake. LOL

Anyone remember the old "Friday the 13th: The Series" where a devil worshipping uncle sold cursed items out of a curios shop. I wonder if that gave this person the idea for selling all this haunted junk.

There is a haunted toy milk carton on ebay! The person getting rid of it said her daughter kept asking to get sell it in order to get rid of the "spirit of the milk". And this is a toy!
