Ebay A Virtual Bazaar

Updated on February 3, 2012

the Bazaar

Imagine you're walking down a narrow street in some exotic country with little carts and tables set up to sell everything you can possibly imagine from cellular phones to a dried up peice of toast. Every fifteen seconds you see something else even weirder. At every table there's a bidding war for this absolute junk. Well imagine no more. Just go to Ebay.

I've bought speakers and guitars there. I even bought a genuine Hulda Clark Parasite Zapper. It didn't zap any parasites though. I've seen some strange auctions there too. One auction had a piece of toast with a burn mark on it that supposedly looked like the Virgin Mary. What does the mother of God actually look like anyway? Other funny products I've seen include an auction for an ass kicking. The seller said (and I paraphrase) "I will come to your house and kick your ass. I'll make it a surprise. I'll jump you on your way down the hallway. I'm 6' 2" 230 pounds. I can do it good. Just mail me your key. I'll even slap your wife and kids around too if you let me take your credit card to the strip club." Other funny stuff on there are things like a work of art that's a poop on a piece of canvas. That's what I call a real work of art! A guy selling his B#$#% F@#$$^%^$ Wh@#%%^ of an X wife. Bidding starts at $0.99.

On a more serious note. Ebay sells more goods than all other online auctions put together. Not too shabby. If there is something you want or need, it's a good place to start. You can use existing auctions to tell you how much that crap in the garage is actually worth. I bought a mid-70s Morely wah guitar pedal for $75 at a music store some years ago. I thought I paid too much. I just sold it on Ebay for 153.50 plus shipping. Turns out that junk is worth something to somebody. So ladies, get your lazy husband off the couch this weekend and pull the flotsam and jetsam out from under the boat or behind the lawnmower and dig for treasure.
