Oh Puh-leese! (How Not to Sell Your Knives)

Postby dynaryder » Wed Jan 14, 2004 1:00 am

Someone just hit a new low on eBay. Warning: possibly not safe for work.

Veins, I think.

Look at the binoculars by same seller. Better layout. Nasty business, this ebay.

I think it is a covered up tatoo. We have a long thread in Bladeforums/Spyderco forum about this ad. Nuff said.

Hey!

Fancy this poppin' up here at our own Spydie house. Check out the BFC thread for more detail. But jimineeee, Dyna!!! Can't believe ya checked out all his other auctions <img src="wink.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0> !!

E-Bay actually has more questionable adverts but most of them tend to shuffle off over to the Mature listings. We all know that sex sells and even though this is a bad attempt, I'm not as offended by this thin attempt as I am by people who capitalize on others misfortune or sell items like the WTC Rescue or Iraqi Freedom knives at scalper prices.

Stay safe! Stay sharp!

I just thought it was too cheesy for words.

Java: there's a pair of EF Natives and like 3 or 4 WTC's on eBay. The Native listings are more cheese,but the WTC's are all consecutive #'d and have 'But It Nows' for less than SFO. Prolly from a distributer clearing out stock.

Interesting. I had to look at it for at least 10 minutes so my eyes could adjust to see a butterfly pattern. But then, I wasn't quite sure so I looked at it another 5 minutes. (These Rorschach tests are really ambiguous). Finally, I think it's an abstract spider design that is being reflected off of the Worker and onto her puppies. <img src="wink.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>

maybe that was just a typo and should have been "teats" not "tests" <img src="tongue.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>

ummmm.. those "marbled" mammaries are questionable.. Think they were "hard-worn" or simply "abused" by someone.. <img src="tongue.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>
