    You Can Sell Anything On Ebay – Small Island Country Edition

    Those wacky Australians – one tried to put the whole country of New Zealand for sale.

    He started the bidding at one cent, but it quickly escalated by 22 bidders to 3,000 Australian dollars (equivalent to about 200 dingo eating babies, or 74 kangaroos, or $2,330 US).

    You Can Sell Anything On Ebay – Slimeball Coat Edition

    by  • May 4, 2006 • Tagged:   • Comments

    This one’s for all the women who have had to suffer through unwanted advances while trying to have a fun night out at the bar.

    Hey Slime Ball- I have your Suitcoat! Buy it back here!
    (EDIT: This was taken down by eBay. What a bunch of fun-haters.)

    Apparently, drunken college guy annoys poor girl in bar in effort to pick her up, fails, but asks said girl to hold onto his suit coat. Girl takes suit coat home, including Gucci sunglasses, and puts it up on ebay.

    Classic line from the listing:
    “First of all; women do not like guys who wear suits to the bar. If a woman asks you what you do for a living (only to mock the fact that you are clearly wearing a suit at the bar to try and impress the ladies) and you reply- “No job, Career Fair” You are definitely not getting laid.” emphasis mine

    The pictures are worth the price of admission alone. Enjoy.

    There’s no disputing that eBay can be a great source of income, while at the same time emptying your house of crap that you don’t need.

    But how about a punch in the face?

    As of this post 30 bidders have raised the price to $10,000 with more than 6 days to go.

    UPDATE: It looks like eBay took it down. If I can find a cached link I’ll post it.
