Hahaha, that's great. I can't believe people are bidding over $300 for the thing. Are they really so gullible that they believe his "story"? I mean, come on! Mysterious incidents in his childhood, car cleaners refusing to work and declining pay, footsteps coming from empty rooms... I mean, seriously. he's throwing every ghost story cliché there is in there.

Keep in mind these are the same sort of people who join Scientology: Idiots.

Funny bid item though. ^^

You know, being an honest person sucks. I would love to exercise creative writing skills while making a fair amount of money on something I'd gotten for free, or less than $300 anyway. I would feel  too guilty afterwords though.

I wonder if he'll even get the money though, I mean "The Carrot that looks like a vagina" didn't actually sell, neither did that "ghost in a bottle".

You got to give him credit though, he stays in character all throughout those rediculous questions, and that story is super long.

That was a fun read.

I'd like to try something like this myself, being an amateur writer and all. It's just the fact that you wouldn't actually get the money that makes it less appealing.

That was an enetertaining auction... including the questions and answers. I can't believe some people are really going for this.

Well I guess people who would bid on "novelty" crap like this would probably not be likely to actually pay.

The customer questions are the best part of the page.

Quote
Q: Dear Sir, At the moment this is just a story and nothing else, a pretty far fetched story too. What proof do you have that any of this actually happened, surely there must be some Police/Fire/Ambulance reports, video recordings (you said you had one but took it back off again), pictures or audio tapes. If you are able to prove any of this story you are telling, then I will undoubtedly be able to secure you substantially more than anyone else is offering, I have a client who would be willing to pay $10,000 if not more for this with some sort of proof. I look forward to your reply. Many thanks and kind regards, Alan

A:    You do not wish to experience what proof would be for you.
