EBay's strangest and funniest listings - people are actually bidding for air guitars!

I saw this on another website where they showed some of EBay's weirdest auctions and people are actually bidding money for

My favourite was the air guitar (there's 10 available) -
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...751867688&rd=1

Or the "Genuine Irish Ghost In a Bottle" which someone bought for £255 after 34 bids
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...e=STRK:MEWA:IT

A Packet for crisps touched by Jerry Springer went for £50
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...e=STRK:MEWA:IT

A 16 year old offering friendship for year. He is "a rocker who is into anything hardcore" apparently
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...526449015&rd=1

A supermarket carrier bag
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...sPageName=WDVW

A cup of tea
[url]http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=1468&item=55242950 93&rd=1[url]

And look at this one and see if you can see the small print showing how the winner of this got majorly ripped off
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...329237057&rd=1

People are stupid enough to actually spend money on things like this? Maybe it's just a British thing? I am sure there are even weirder and sillier things people are bidding for out there. £255 for a ghost in a bottle? I am certainly not throwing out my Smirnoff Ice bottles now - there's money to be made here!

the thing about the ghost is that I will be really scare if I accidentally open the bottle thinking the ghost came out or something... hahah

I guess some people just have too much extra cash to bid on things like this

My air guitar broke so I might have to bid on a new one.

I saw on Jay Leno the other week he was showing crzy stuff on ebay. Someone sold Justin Timberlake's French toast, someone was trying to sell their brother, and a chip shaped like a cowboy boot went for over $3000

And all the best for Elena
