No question about the accuracy of Fencert's lot sales.

He is a totally reliable seller.  If he makes a mistake he fixes it immediately.

Fencert is also a member of the Acaeum, although he has only posted once or twice....actually...an offer to sell all of his Judges Guild stock.

Not so much a goofy description as an interesting choice of picture.

Please note, according to the description, "the box is in good condition for its age".

Title is accurate. They are in good condition.

They don't look like medusae; perhaps they are an ettin.

Has anyone asked the seller WTF is up with the picture?

I think that's a stock photo, not a picture of the actual item for sale.  Worth an inquiry, though.

Damn, guys, are you saying you'd boot them out of the haypile? I know my standards are low, but come on! Besides, that is why God invented doggy style. So that looks wouldn't matter.
I would assume the seller used a digital camera and linked to the wrong picture, then didn't check it when he uploaded it.

I gotta agree with Frank.  At least neither of them look like gully dwarves.  :wink:

And I was afraid that my use of "box" as a double entendre would offend some folks.

Caring about offending people ranks real high on my list, right up there with cleaning under the rim of the toilet.
Has anyone heard from the seller about the pic?

This auction itself isn't particularly funny in its description per se:


** expired eBay auction **


However, the fact that the seller just spent $27 in ebay fees to be lucky to sell a book at its $0.99 opening bid is actually quite humorous. I mean why on earth would would anyone belive that it is worth it to set that auction up as a $20 Featured plus listing as well as spendin an extra $2.00 to put in both bold and circle it and then if that wasn't enough spend an extra $5.00 to encase it. It just doesn't make any sense. :?
