Happy Boxing Day, everyone! What is Boxing Day, you ask? Apparently it is the day when I burn Eggo waffles, forget to click save while writing posts thereby losing all my hard work, people in England box up their presents, and the news is pretty boring except for former “Saved By The Bell” stars nearly knifing people and pictures of dicks that may or may not be attached to Usher.
So, I say we try to solve a MYSTERY. Hm? Sound like fun? I can be Jessica Fletcher and you can whatever fictional detective you like (although if you pick Detective Robert Goren or Benedict Cumberbatch-style Sherlock I might try to make out with you), and together we will solve a mystery that is really not at all that important.
ITEM: I just caught this eBay posting on the Not The Onion subreddit (it has since been removed). One autograph of one “Caleb A. Welde” for sale. Starting at $0.01, but with an asking price of $579.99, from seller “stormsummit.” Huh. Keep reading »

Allegedly, there is a mom in New South Wales, Australia who is punishing her daughter for lying about having a sleepover when instead she and her friend hung out with older boys. Also, the girl has a “self righteous and lippy attitude.” You know, teenagers.
Anyway, this mom’s chosen punishment is to allegedly sell her daughter’s four tickets to a One Direction concert on Friday, October 25th in Sydney via eBay. ”I hope the scowl on your bitchy little friends faces when you tell them that your dad and i revoked the gift we were giving you all reminds you that your PARENTS are the ones that deserve love and respect more than anyone,” the mom supposedly wrote. “And your silly little pack mentality of taking your parents for fools is one sadly mistaken.” Keep reading »
“Is your pet guinea pig tired of wandering around the house unarmored and vulnerable? Do they get picked on by other guinea pigs? Has your guinea pig ever wanted to go with you to a Renaissance Faire but had nothing to wear? Fear not! A solution is here!”
This is the text of an eBay listing for the majestic suit of guinea pig armor and matching helmet shown above. Apparently the suit was handmade for the guinea pig in the photo, Lucky, who unfortunately passed away before he was able to use his armor for anything other than a couple photoshoots. His owner is now auctioning off Lucky’s outfit to the highest bidder, and donating all proceeds to Virginia’s Metropolitan Guinea Pig Rescue. The current winning bid? Over $8,000. Yes, seriously. Lucky’s legacy will live on for quite some time. [eBay via Digital Spy]
Itching to relive the winter wonderland of the past few months? Well, if you’ve got $10 million dollars and a really big cooler, a guy in Rotherham, UK, will happily sell you an “unassembled snowman,” aka a big pile of snow. But hey, if that’s too rich for your blood, you can also take a gander at a cheaper, similar snow-portunity. A guy in Kent, UK, is also selling an “unassembled snowman.” Here’s his listing… Keep reading »
