    A woman is auctioning her father's "ghost" on e Bay to assuage her son's fear of his grandfather's ghost.

    So far it has drawn 34 bids with a top offer of $US78.

    Hmm, can understand the mother trying to calm her son by saying the "ghost" has gone.... but why not just tell the child it was given away, or some other story.

    In my mind, she's just yet another fruit loop.

    If she can get 78 bucks for it, then she might as well sell it instead of "giving it away". I'm personally more worried about the buyers.

    Funny just funny, giving away a ghost, I bet the poor grandfather most be upset that his ghost is being given away.

    I think this give me an idea I will give away my aches on e-bay too, may be I will feel better after that.

    What you think people?:o

    I was thinking the same thing - I have a veritable stockpile of aches, pains, and complaints that I would be more than happy to part with.

    Unfortunately, I am sure they would be replaced by others. Wait, maybe this is a source of perpetual income - if the market will support it...

    In my caribean Island riddle with vodoo, santeria and spiritism, you find stories in how to buy a spirit at the cemetary for one penny to work for you to be used as to scare somebody that you don't like.:cool:

    Is not actually being stupid but more of what your beliefs are.

    you'll be happy to know that that cane went to $65,000 on Ebay, bought in a brilliant move by Golden Palace Casinos. They also bought the "Virgin Mary Grilled Cheese" for a huge price as well. At first I thought they were morons for doing it, but it was actually a great idea. I mean, they were able to get publicity over the entire country twice for under $100,000. Compare that to a multimillion dollar superbowl ad that goes on for a mere 30 seconds. This was on TV, posted all over the internet, and written in newspapers. But as for the rest of the bidders who actually went up to $65,000 without the motive of advertising, well, I can't say much for their state of mind

    Ghost for sale

    I bought a ghost the other day, but when I got it home the box was empty... How do I get my money back?

    for only a penny more, you can do what marg6043 does and buy a ghost to scare the seller into giving the money back....:0
  10. I have to agree with pinnapple...I am worry that the buyers have gone off the deep end > What would one do with a used ghost anyway. By the way I have some prime Alabama Zombies for sale if anyone is interested ...I could use a few bucks.

    I think that this just goes to show that people will try to scam anyone. She of course is using her sons fear and asking people to feel sorry for him to buy the ghost. Why does she not just give it to someone free if it is for her son? What would the difference be? Nothing, that is why she just wants money. But, I am sure the person will get a certificate. Hey, I am scared of all of the Titanic Ghosts... someone want to buy them all... only $150 each and you own a piece of history. I will even send a certificate of the persons name and only one per person. BTW.... I will be selling Darwins Ghost for about $5,000 and Einsteins for right around $10,000.

    I have asked all of the ghosts that have ever died to speak to me if they did not want me to represent them in the sales. But, none answered by the deadline, so legally I represent any ghost that has died prior to February 23rd, 2005. You all can fight over the rest, because I have too many clients now.......

    BTW, all ghost will be compensated with each sale.
