Top 10 Strangest Items Ever Auctioned On EBay

1 2

In all fairness, EBay has its share of excellent deals and unique items that can be acquisitioned for significantly less than their fair price. No doubt about it, with just a bit of knowhow on the mechanism of auctioning and of course monumental patience to search, evaluate or track the bids, EBay users can purchase anything from rare novelty items to kitchen hardware. However, in the bundle of more or less useful things you can find on this website, there are also a number of oddities that cannot be classified as junk simply because they are unbelievably strange. Let’s find out more about the top ten!

 

1. The male chastity belt model CB-6000

Folks, if you have to resort to using the CB-6000 just to keep your vow of chastity, maybe it wasn’t worth it in the first place. This incredibly scary contraption is essentially a plastic casing for the penis, advertised as “comfortable” by the seller. You don’t need a second look to understand that its shape and dimensions make it incredibly bothersome and highly visible through pants, which means that you’ll probably have to explain the permanent semi-erection with a red face while everyone’s staring at you. Of course, telling people that you are actually wearing a Middle Ages inspired device won’t make you seem less weird.

 

2. The biggest Lite-Bright of The Last Supper painting

Lite-Bright toys are all the rage! This is what you would have said if you were born 90 years ago and you can check your grandparents’ home for one of these things. If they don’t own a Lite-Bright and you’re keep on spending $15,000 on the biggest, highly detailed reproduction of The Last Supper that probably took years to assemble – some people have way too much time on their hands – then you can always purchase it on EBay. It is important to note that in addition to the “craftsmanship”, this Lite-Bright copy features a hand sculpted/painted frame as well as an elegant velvet back.

 

3. A bike siren shaped like E.T.’s head

Now, fans of Spielberg’s tear jerking S.F. movie might think that the idea of having an E.T. siren on their bike is pretty neat. And it is, but unfortunately only in theory. The actual product closely resembles the severed head of a baby dwarf who was suffering from a lazy eye condition. In addition to the cheesy/creepy plastic design, the pièce de résistance consists of the demonic red-glowing eyes that light up when this thing is turned on.

 

4. A shot glass with the Nickelback logo

The only reason why anyone would want a Nickelback branded shot glass is that neither Justin Bieber nor Selena Gomez are old enough to advertise their “music” through alcohol-related accessories. And, since according to the internet, Nickelback is the top 3 most hated band in the world, the choice is obvious. However, it is probably better to refrain from taking this glass to the pub and, more importantly, from asking the bartender to pour you a shot in it. For obvious reasons!

 

5. The blue head of Obama surrounded by sketchy clip art

The seller of this art piece, if you can call the tacky, blue Photoshopped face of the U.S president surrounded by unrelated items like a banana and a snail wearing a watch, has the audacity to ask for a nearly $1,000 starting price. Not only does the blue face makes no sense unless Obama chocked on a piece of the said unrelated banana, but neither do the other “symbols”, like the coke can or the cloudy sky picture. But art is subject to personal interpretation, so feel free to view the snail and the banana as sexual metaphors, the blue face depicting autoerotic asphyxiation and the Rolex symbolizing wealth. The Coke can is probably just for energy.
