The description itself is not all that funny, but check out the Q&A by the seller at the bottom. 8O :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Ok, that was genuinely hilarious.  You're forgiven, Brian. ;)

I don't know who asked the questions, but I watched that bitch for a good two hours, refreshing the screen every minute or so  - just in case they revised it with a Buy it Now . . .   :D  :D  :D

You know that acution right there is a Prime example why I now snipe on items that I really want.  That newbie was going to outbid ifearyeti, no matter what. Ifearyeti's bid could have been 3 times as much as it was and that newb was going to outbid him. :roll: I mean, I know your new and all, but when I was newer I was a lot more hesitant that I am today.  I just didnt jump into some bidding war for hundreds of dollars without figuring out first what the hell I was doing.  It cost me a lot of auctions, but I to me that is the only way to do it. :?

Someone has been hooked. I'm confused as to what is actually being sold though. It's about clear as mud. If it is for the whole lot I guess the current price isn't too aweful but definitely not a deal...

This book was literally on fire:

Looks like they took that whole fire breathing red dragon thing a little too far. 8O

Look how dumb this auction is:



Batteries not Included: DVDs & Movies | eBay



Why the hell would he just not put this in his store and let the buyer comethrough that way :idea:

Sadly, it is very "fraigle".

I am constantly stunned at how poorly people spell in their auctions. Do these idiots even proofread? I can understand a single minor mistake, but this is a frequent occurrence.

Well, he spelled "Dungeons" correctly 1 out of 3 times.  33% isn't bad . . . is it?  Especially when the price for a Fiend Folio is so reasonable.   :D  :D
