I cannot believe that someone has actually bid on that. I think I still have an old calendar from 2001 somewhere around here; must be worth a fortune!

Misleading ad. September 11 is the best when purchased by date, not the expiration date. I have eaten many things well after the best when purchased by date without ill effects.

You must be joking!

Maybe you are the misleading ad, sir!

When you say "ill effects" are you referring to "terrorist attacks"?

15 American dollars. I think we all know I expect to get several thousand times that, though.

My guess is that it has to do with the reference to 9-11. eBay tends to get antsy about auctions related to 9-11 and their policy is usually cancel now, think later.

But it was such a patriotic auction... it had flags and red white and blue stuff and everything. I guess they just hate our freedom.

Ken, was that actually your auction?

Perhaps there is rule against selling rotten or expired food then.

edit: Though now I remember the 10 year old grilled cheese with the virgin mary that sold for $28K.

Yeah: mine, J.

Bogus. Pulled down because it was considered 'food.' Who the hell considers horseradish food, regradless of expiration date? I always thought it was purely decorative.

Somebody probably reported it. I got a couple hate messages from people who obviously hate America, possibly bin Laden himself under the pseudonym "bigDaddy."

I could probably convince them it isn't food, right? Seems like a lot of work, though.

Thanks ya'll!
