The world is clearly filled with very strange and quirky people who are willing to do anything to make a quick buck. And apparently there are lots of even stranger people willing to spend their money on things that seem absolutely absurd to the rest of us. Need more proof that the world has gone stark raving mad? Well just take a look at some of the weird items that people have auctioned off on Ebay!
In 2003, a man in Arkansas tried to auction off a jar containing a ghost he claimed was haunting him.
The bidding started at $99 and closed at $50,922. However the bidder is yet to pay for the jar and its spooky contents.
Remember in 2007 when our favorite pop star went a little coo-coo and shaved her head in a salon? Well someone scooped up Britney’s strands and tried to auction them off on Ebay- starting bid, one million dollars.
Ebay later removed the listing as it was considered a violation of their policy.
Most of us will agree that there’s nothing more delicious than a bowl of cornflakes in the morning, but how many would pay $1,350 on Ebay for a single cornflake shaped like Illinois?
Well, in 2008 the owner of a trivia website bought this unusual flake to add to his pop culture memorabilia.
