I use Ebay a lot. I love it. I’ve bought and sold hundreds of completely random things. I paid $6 once for a McDonald’s Happy Meal toy that my son wanted so badly. Yes, someone sold one of those ridiculously cheap toys to me for $6. If you can’t find it anywhere else, you can surely find it on Ebay.
Just like we protect our reputation on Twitter, it’s the same on Ebay. I have a 100% feedback rating and I would do almost anything to protect that if I ever thought it was in jeopardy. Sometimes it’s fun to just check out what’s for sale. There are always strange and unusual things listed that will give you a good laugh.
Tonight when I was perusing Ebay, I started thinking about the most bizarre things that have ever been listed on that site. Of course, bizarre is a relative term, it’s all in the eye of the beholder, but after researching what has been put on Ebay over the years, I have compiled my top 12 list of the most bizarre things ever listed on Ebay. I’m sure I’ve left some super strange and gnarly things off the list, so please leave those in a comment below.
