Comic Book Quackers!

Sorry for the awful pun, but really you would have to be crackers to pay this much for a comic!

I love comics, not so fond of Donald Duck though; more of an Spiderman, Batman, 2000ad kind of guy. Bidding for this one has reached $3,450 and the reserve still hasn't been met! Comic collectors must be crazier than domain name collectors!

The going rate for these things apparently is nearer $5000-$6,500 so snap up a bargain here.

*Edit: went for $4049.00

Internet's Largest Orange Dot Auction?

Here's a very weird one for you: An orange dot.
I don't have much to say about it other than it is orangey (strictly speaking
#ff6633), and dot shaped.
It is being auctioned by

I don't have a whole lot else to say about this one. Hmmmm...except that it has had 30 bids!
See for your self here.

Poker King Domain Name

What is it with Poker domain names? Just like buses, there are none for ages and then 3 (or 4) come along all at once. The domain dot Ki serves Kiribati (Gilbert Islands).

If you buy the domain name it doesn't have to have anything to do with Kiribati. I think it is very memorable because it could be turned into the logo above, with the Ki starting off the word "King".

You might feel like a king if you win this name. Bid HERE.

Chest Advertising for Charity

Online on eBay now from seller davinci*s_code_flock_girl is an auction to advertise on her chest for 30 days. Her name seems to change almost as often as the auctions, well not quite but possibly the seller has changed her name to catch traffic from people searching for the da vinci code.

What's weird about this auction? Well, what I find weird is that it has had over 500 views and over 30 bids reaching $200 so far, but THIS recent auction to advertise on a construction worker's back for LIFE, didn't receive any bids!

What's the difference? Do advertisers only like pretty faced girls rather than workie's backs, or is it that they don't want to permanently brand someone (just in case they change their company identity in today's fast paced world)?

Or it could be that 100% of the final sale price goes to Breast Cancer Awareness. Maybe eBayers are more interested in helping good causes than I thought. See it here.

Incredible Domain Name Bundle

If you are interested in the domain name market, this is definitely a way to get your foot in the door. Seller antiqueanimalprints is selling an absolutuly HUGE bundle of domains. Sometimes people sell a bundle of domains usually because most of them are pretty iffy and only have 1 or 2 good ones. But almost every one of these is excellent

Bidding has reached US $10,095.00 but the reserve has not been reached. If by the end of the auction the reserve still hasn't been reached then the seller has said that they will consider selling the name off individually.
True they're not dot coms, but cctlds. Bear in mind though, to buy equivalent dot coms would cost you millions if not billions. Grab a bargain while you can!

Bolt In Sealed Jar

Need more IRON in your diet. How about this jar of Sweet Bell Peppers Sandwich Toppers then? The jar is completely sealed and has never been opened, But inside the jar at the bottom is a metal bolt. As the eBay description says, I'm sure a lawyer would have a field day with this!

Sea Monster in Tampa Florida

Seamystery is selling this Sea Monster which was found in Tampa, Florida.
It has attracted quite a bit of interest and 10 bids already, although I have my doubts about the veracity of this mummified sea creature.

Back Tattoo Advertising Auction

Back space for Sale. If you have a company or website you might want to take a look at this auction from pincussion345.
He is a construction worker form New Jersey, so you advert will be pretty much exposed the whole year long. =P
Bidding starts at a very reasonable $399. Where else could you buy a lifetime advert for that?
The whole back is not for tattooing just a 6 x 9 inch spot on the upper back but more space could be negotiable.

The picture above shows my logo (maybe I'll put in a bid), but my guess is that golden palace casino will be on there soon enough!

Check it our here

The 'Tache is Back!

Daxalax's first moustache auction was pulled by eBay for having a link to his site
He now has brought his moustache auction back bigger and badder than before. You can try before you buy now. The picture above is an image of Shoemoney sporting "the Captain" (what Dax lovingly calls the facial hairpiece).

Bidding has reached over $100 and Shoemoney is in the lead. He must want it real bad.

End Of The World Is Nigh!

666 according to the bible (and Iron Maiden) is the number of the beast.
What is today's date? It's 6-6-6 !
Or more precisely 6/6/06. Last time this happened was one hundred years ago.
Don't worry the world won't end, it'll probably be here still in another hundred years and people will be worrying about the same things.
But what will auctions look like in one hundred years? Will we still have online auctions then, weird or otherwise?

Here are some 666 inspired "evil" auctions for you now:We all have heard that 'the love of money is the root of all evil' but is this banknote the most evil dollar bill ever?
Check out the serial number, it's:spooky, no?


Or this car registration plate which would be good for the son of satan, or alternatively someone called Terry. (I always imagined that if Satan was to have a son he'd be called Keith, not Damien).

And last but not least is this VINTAGE Iron Maiden t-shirt from MrRetroClothing. It's obviously devilish because it has lasted since 1982 without ageing, it looks almost pristine in this photo.

Whatever you do today be careful and don't walk under any ladders.

Duck Swallows Alien

This is the startling X-ray image of a bird with strange stomach contents. All funds from this auction go towards helping rehabilitate other birds at the International Bird Rescue and Research Center of California.

One cynical email the seller got said:
"How hard would it be to open that duck up, plant an alien look-a-like toy or figure & sew the duck back up and take the X-ray giving the appearence of an alien"

Possibly true, given that the poor duck didn't survive but who would go to an elaborate hoax like that when the most likely cause of the alien head is an 'anomaly of internal organs'. The seller has had a few unkind emails too, but they seem to be missing the point that it is a charity aucion.

Nearly 100,000 people have looked at it, a huge number due to the news coverage it has had, even down under in Australia.

It's an excellent image in my opinion and would look great framed. Bids have already reached over $4000.
If you dont' have that cash to spend you could always make a donation at the website HERE. The IBRRC have been
helping saved oiled wildlife since 1971.
You can even purchase an alien duck shirt there too.

It also looks, to me, like Eddie the Iron Maiden mascot. So if you are a die hard bird lover, or Maiden fan bid now.

Another Poker domain Name.

Ok I lied (or maybe I really was bluffing), there's another one. Yes, another poker domain name is on eBay.
This time it's :

IO stands for the Indian Ocean. Not got quite the same ring to it as UG for Uganda which I told you about the other day, but still I imagine it's gonna go quite high. It's already over $300.

Casino.IO sold on back in March of this year, will this go higher? Put it in your watchlist to find out.

Here is the LINK.

ps. Just thought of something for IO: IN/OUT. I'm sure something could be made of that in an advertising spiel. "Are you sitting IN or sitting this round OUT?"
