More from ebay

What is it with these people?

This glass was left outside by one of my kids during a solar eclipse. When I retrieved it I noticed that it weighed over 10 pounds. I didn't notice any contents but tried pouring it out and spilled some of the "Magic Air" on my left foot. My shoe grew from a size 11 to a 17 DDD in less than 15 seconds. I ceased pouring any more of the Magic Air out and placed the Haunted Purple Glass in my cupboard.
-------------
the Magic Air had turned into a haunted gigantic bacteria and was slimming all over my living room walls. This occurs nightly between 2:30 AM and 4:30 AM Central Daylight time. Anyway, the next day I poured some of the Magic Air on a 1 pound package of hamburger. Within 15 seconds that 1 pound of hamburger turned into 50 pounds. I packaged the meat up and froze it except for a couple of pounds I kept out to make a hot dish.
And check the price it sold for!

Everyone really liked the hot dish and loved the meat but they all got terrible gas and each grew 1" overnight. I kept feeding this to my children but quit eating it after I grew 6" from my original height.
I see the winning bid was from a character calling himself pimpdaddywelfare2. I'm guessing he wants to add six inches to his height so he can play pro basketball and get off welfare?

Doesn't ebay have rules against obvious fraudulent items?

The guy is a skeptic with a twisted sense of humor methinks...
APOLOGY TO ALL PARANORMAL RESEARCHERS

It has been brought to my attention that I have been smug and sarcastic regarding paranormal researchers. I want to apologize for being inconsiderate. Additionally, I would like to make a couple of comments regarding the contribution to society paranormal researchers have made!

Paranormal researchers are a preternatural kind of scientist. They go through tremendous effort to be accepted into one of the few prestigious mail order schools available. Then they pay a great deal of money for their academic courses, up to $100.00 per class.

Then they must maintain an extremely high academic record, 62% or better, throughout their scientific studies. Finally most of the mail order correspondence schools require a 2,000-word dissertation about their field of study prior to granting a diploma. You heard me right a two thousand word thesis. That’s almost three full pages of highly researched and scrutinized information about their thesis. They must complete this hurdle prior to receiving the coveted "Diploma in Paranormal Studies".

I have greatly underestimated the intensity and the plain old-fashioned hard work these students of ghostology science must undergo! Here are some of the courses they may take: Electronic Voice Phenomena Technology, Parapsychology, UFO Investigation and Paranormal Investigation to name a few. Just think of all the ghosts that have been helped by a kind-hearted Parapsychologist helping them through their difficulties! Finally ghosts can have the same medical coverage we have. {Note to self; check on ghost health insurance. Maybe donate some money to help wayward spooks...}

So in short I have been wrong and want to publicly admit it. Also I want to express my sincere apologies to all the paranormal researchers and give them a greatly deserved thank you for making my life and the lives of everyone on the face of the Earth better as a result of all their hard work… THANK YOU EVER SO MUCH! And May the Force be With You or something…

Nothing amazes me more than what people buy on Ebay, far more than what some people sell.

That's pretty funny, I like this part of the link:
I received the following message from an eBayer: I have a talking sausage that sasses me, from the sliced end!!! It has eyes, a nose, and a mouth and speaks very eloquently. So I would like to swap my 14-inch talking sausage for your magic air if I am fortunate and blessed enough to be the high bidder of your fabulous auction.

If you bought this you could probably post on JREF when it goes down again. By sheer luck, of course.... http://cgi.ebay.com/Ebay-Haunted-Ghost- ... dZViewItem
