I could make a fortune!! What can I sell? Hmm..I have some used kitty litter? Maybe some pencil stubs...

There's a woman in Arizona who sells tumbleweeds! She's making a lot of money sending them all over the world and she gets them in the desert FREE!!!!

You just have to find the right product.

Um....isn't it illegal to send plants across borders? *grin*  It is a bush, afterall, just a highly mobile one that temporarily puts down roots when water is found.

Good grief.  
I have enough of my own, thank you...



Besides, I think they would have to come along with a body, and that would just be another dust-catcher...

ROTFL, thanks for the unexpected grin this morning! And here I've been racking my brains to figure out what to sell on ebay!
MY BRAINS!!! That's what I'll list. Hmmm, wonder what the bidding should start at, as I KNOW this thing MUST be worth more than a dollar or two. LOL

Well...I have been known to sell things I was going to throw out on there too, but that one beats me by a long shot, as does this one.

Do you happen to need a used flag?

Well, from what I heard someone already sold their forehead space and got a little over 30K for it...

Another one I saw the other day said "Selling left nut" and showed a picture of two cashews (I think they were cashews, they were pretty small in the picture).  Anyway, I sent the link to someone and just that fast it was off of ebay!  LOL so not all things work..

Actually, there are several foreheads for rent on ebay--I tried to link the most humorous looking forehead.

What about all that unused space behind the forehead? Make a great furniture warehouse wouldn't it?

Kacy, I actually thought about that today. I have 30 items listed on Ebay right now and will be listing dozens more over the next week (including poetry books) and considered offering custom made poems tailored to specific requests. Problem is I know nothing of love and would have to offer my services for assailing others, attacking ex-spouses, employers, neighbors et al. And combined with my Steelers loss this realization saddens me for what does that say about me? (sadder still you know it would sell)

I can't imagine anyone topping the "Virgin Mary" chunk bit half a cheese sandwich which went for several thousand dollars.

I am absolutely on the floor laughing now.
No dinghy!?
Richard, that cheese sandwich WAS the most absurd offering ever. Surely we can put our genius minds together and equal that absurdity???  

(PSST can we sell Christopher?...he looks good, nicely polished, no chips, and....LOL)

I worked all my life and this guy gets over $37,000 on eBay for use of his forehead for advertising!  I am slapping mine.

Chris you have me hooked now on checking out the totally bizarre, so how about this one? http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=1469&item=5553044896&rd=1

Is this even legal, it wouldn't be here in Canada?   http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=317&item=5950975313&rd=1

you probably could, Kacy, but I guarantee they'd want a refund!

however, should you receive an offer from Ali Larter, I'll promise to be a bad... errr... nice boy.
