Autographed Air Guitar

Wedding Dress Guy

Larry Star was so disillusioned by his marriage break-up that he not only sold his ex-wife's wedding dress on eBay — but he modelled the dress as well. Spreading his 'size 12' frame around the world, the dress sold for US$3850. Not a bad result, unless you're the buyer of course.

The Internet

It really has all been thought of. Offering the World Wide Web in its entirety, this bargain of an auction began at only $1 million — when its true value is worth in the trillion-dollar region. Hopefully potential 'buyers' knew this was a gag.

Justin Timberlake's French Toast

Back in his N*SYNC heyday, Justin Timberlake caused an eBay frenzy when a supposed "uneaten" piece of his French toast went up for sale. If only there was proof that it really was him who hadn't eaten that toast (wait, what?) — which came with fork, plate and extra syrup.

Christopher Columbus' Fake Teeth

Where do we start with the problems here? Not only has Columbus been dead for over 500 years, but the accompanying photo has the seller wearing said fake teeth — which a child happened to find it on an ocean's edge — before a disclaimer tells you "no refunds on used items, especially false teeth". Like we said, so many things wrong here.

New Zealand

National rivalries never die. An Australian citizen decided to put the home of Lord of the Rings -- New Zealand -- up for sale in 2006. The auction reached $3000 before being taken down due to violation of eBay policy. Oh well.

Virgin Mary Grilled Cheese Sandwich

We all know about this one. A family from (yep, you guessed it) the U.S. discovered that a grilled cheese sandwich of theirs looked suspiciously like the Virgin Mary. While we could go on about everything that is wrong with that chain of events, we will just leave you with this: the partially bitten slice sold for $28,000.

Clean Fresh Urine

Starting at $100, this auction offered drug- and alcohol-free number one from a female specimen. The downside is that it cannot be used for drug testing ("not for illegal purpose" apparently).
