In typically not so subtle fashion I emailed the seller and informed him of the hysteria his auction caused. His response is below. Scary thought to ponder: He will use the funds to buy something 'absurdly ridiculous' on ebay after this slingshot sells. I am frightened, hold me. You asked: "Have you seen the riot (of laughter) this auction started on styleforum? http://22.214.171.124/cgi-bin....0"
Thank You SOOOO much for the heads up .. It is awesome that people are enjoying it. I am really glad. We live in a society of $60K haunted walking canes that come with their own ghosts, pretzels and old toast that look like the Virgin Mary and people selling themselves as SLAVES, ebay is cool like that. I do thank you again informing me of this, I am sure that the bids will climb, the item is a $150 item and YES there are people out there that will buy it... Keep an eye on it, WATCH IT at the end... there is already ONE bid. I am sure many more will come in. The people on the Forum don't get a penny of the money that it brings in... I do .. Instead of dumping it or donating it, I recover a good chunk of change and blow it on something absurdly ridiculous on eBay ..
