Top 10 Weirdest Things Ever Sold on eBay
Share This Article:
We all know that the internet is a weird and wonderful place – from connecting with a community of motorcycle-riding fire breathers (yes, they exist), to trawling online shops searching for the perfect personalised fish tank accessory (sad, but true) – it is a vast, online network that makes us all feel a little less ‘out-there’. At TNS we are all up for a little bit of something different, but when this normalization of weird behaviour is combined with an unbridled love for internet shopping, or indeed internet auctioning, that’s when things go from 0 to CRAZY in the click of a mouse. So here for your entertainment is a list of the ten weirdest items that have ever been put up for auction on eBay. From rhino excrement to an actual human baby; here are some of the most bizarre things that people have ever sought to sell on the Internet. And even more worryingly, they were all bought (almost). William Shatner’s kidney stone. In 2005, legendary Star Trek actor William Shatner decided to auction off his kidney stone to raise money for charity. Although organ sales are prohibited under trafficking laws, kidney stones are clearly exempt as the Golden Palace Casino successfully bid on the most obscure of Star Trek memorabilia of all time at the out-of-this-world price of $75,000. A cornflake shaped like Illinois. This eBay find might not be as weird as the others, but it is definitely the most tragic. Not only did the sisters who found it identify it as being worthy to be sold online, but more worryingly, some evidently mundane people bid well over £1,000 for the novelty-shaped breakfast food. Spending eternity on top of Marilyn Monroe. In an attempt to raise enough money to pay off her mortgage, widow Elsie Poncher arranged to have her husband’s remains exhumed and his former resting place put up for auction on eBay. The unique selling point of this morbid item? The burial plot is directly above Hollywood bombshell Marilyn Monroe’s, and in the same cemetery as Roy Orbison and Dean Martin.
