A slight off-topic lurch: I just reminded myself of the recent Penny Arcade strip where one of the characters eliminates eBay and just buys a real, live WoW gold-farmer.

Penny Arcade - The Insuperable Barrier Of Language

Okay, back to our regular mocking of listings ... :wink:

He probably got the idea from the gold-farming listings for World of Warcraft. Most of those use soft-core pornography for their photos.

There's a scam in there somewhere ... my guess is it's an attempt to get some coin for some fairly common items in thrashed shape.

My question for the seller: "You realize it would take about 2.8 seconds to copy your 'detailed list' into the actual auction, don't you?"

Post them here so we can laugh about them....he isn't going to post mine either:

Love, Cougar


BTW "Muppet" is a shout out to Kill....a funny word that I should use more when describing a brain dribbling moron...

Geez, I was a lot nicer than that:

I just asked:

"Is she still in the original shrinkwrap?"

and

"If I win the girl do I also get the underwear?"

Not really a laughable description, but just a strange unintended D&D / Star Wars crossover.  I guess the early 80's were a much less litigious era.

Heh, heh. Very useful, yeah!

*checks out price and other auctions from same seller*
Hmm... too high for me (vs. $2.29 @ Noble Knight), but never have picked up one of those 'for fun'.

*g*. Good luck to the winner of http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 8795922121 that their GM (or players) dun string them up. :P
