Cool The most bizarre and funny eBay auctions!

Hey, I figured I'd start a "Dave the Goofy Professor's Fun Thread" on here. If you don't like it just don't reply, close the thread or even delete it if you'd like. But every once in a while I will come into this thread and post one of the most rediculous, bizarre and/or funny items that someone has posted on eBay. It's really neat to see how stupid and silly the things are that are listed on eBay! Someone once sold the Belly Button Lint of Britney Spears for over $75 or a Grilled Cheese Sandwhich that resembled the Virgin Mary for $28,000! I guess these auctions have grown to where Jay Leno has a segment every Tuesday discussing these goofy auctions listed on eBay and it's to the point where these auctions have a cult following. A couple weeks ago I discovered the Cheeto that looks like Snoopy from the Peanuts Cartoon (broken link) on eBay and the Skull Shaped Popcorn Kernel (broken link)! If you look hard enough you will find dozens of these wacky but fun eBay auctions listed on eBay each and every day. I will do my best to entertain you with my findings from time to time in this thread or if you get bored you can venture to my site [url="http://www.goofyauctions.com"]GoofyAuctions.com[/url] where I post 4 new bizarre eBay findings each day.

For my first find that I wanted to share with you it is:

A Peanut That Resembles The Egyptian Queen, Nefertiti:

I saw one on a court show on TV, a couple bought a cell phone on e-bay, at the very bottom it said what you get is exactly what is shown, what they got for their $300.00 was a picture of the phone and the sellers thought they were justified in their sale, needless to say the buyers got their money back. I laughed pretty hard at that one.

Ive seen and/or heard of some pretty crazy stuff. Example, a guy that sold his forehead. Some casino bought it, in the sense that they paid him a fortune to tattoo their ad, and he cant remove it for the rest of his life or unless that casino folds under. Another lady did the same with her tummy, now she has to walk around the rest of her life with a tattoo advertising that same casino on her belly. Someone else sold a Corn Flake because it was the shape of the state of Iowa. A half eaten grilled cheese sandwich. A lock of supposed Brittney Spears hair when she shaved her had last year. I wonder what I could conjure up and sell....and make a lot of money??

That's incredible.. I don't care how much a casino offers me, I would never want to have their name tattoo'd on my forehead, or anywhere else.

By the way Livewire, I got a few rep points, I'll sell them to you for a 100 bucks.

I don't get on ebay, so I couldn't tell you what bizarre things I've seen on there, but I'm sure there are plenty to write a few books about.

I wonder how much I’d get if I auctioned off my user name on Ebay?

The Grilled Cheese Virgin Mary Sandwich was just about the most outlandish one I'd heard of....yes shoppers, an image of the Holy Mother, toasted forever, and preserved in plastic wrap, ready for your bid!!

And there were actually people out there gullible enough to bid on it...

I got wind of it on some news show, so I checked it out, and laughed like hell when I saw there were bids!

I would think Ebay and other such websites would have somebody to monitor what goes on their websites for bids to prevent people from putting silly things like that on there.

I never used Ebay before, nor would I ever buy anything from an online auction. If I wanted to go to an auction, I'd go there in person because I'd like to see and touch what I'm paying for, before paying for it.
