too many things funny and wrong with this to list here... i'd like to buy that bidder pole, though. might come in handy to beat people like this in the head so they can't list any more items on ebay.

It's not Metafilter, it's Fark.com!

Wow, Tsumo. How insightful.
That wasn't a snark, it was MetaSatire!

Oh do we really have to pretend to be smart and edumacated all the time here, tsumo? That link cracks me up seriously and it gladdens my heart "in these difficult times in which we live... in." Let's be smart on another thread.

Well, I obviously agree with Su and RJ, because I posted the damn thing to begin with.

But come on, seriously. This guy is hilarious! I can actually visualize his transition as he updates the thing every time.

The winner probably bought the thing for the sheer comedic value. I know I would have! And the last line is the best:

"we are in the process of making a video of setting the light on fire and running it over with a truck...please email for info ..it will be for sale on ebay ...thanx elvis please look for it in a few days"

I too could just see his face getting redder and redder has his updates went on.

"Thanks... Elvis"

PUT IT IN MY BEDROOM ON THE CEILING AS PHSYCODELIC LIGHT FOR THE HONEY'S

Don't set it on fire, Elvis! We honey's (sic) like it psyc-o-delic.

Awesome post-Ebay never ceases to amaze me. Sociology professors should really take advantage of this freudian flea market in cyberspace.
Question to Christian,were you searching for a "PHSYCODELIC LIGHT FOR THE HONEY'S"
when you stumbled on this gem?

"IT HAS BEEN BROUGHT TO MY ATTENTION THAT YOU CAN BUY THIS LIGHT FOR 45.00 FROM THE MEXICAN FLEA MARKET IN TIJAUNA MEXICO FROM A GUY NAMED LUPE HERNDAZ."

OK, that was pretty funny.

Actually, Eric, I was looking for more information on "LUPE HERNDAZ", as I was planning on buying a very similar light from him later this week.
