Jeez, that one's even better than the dress!
Thanks a lot for brightening up my day!
ROFLMAO

Though I've seen a TV program that actually says things will sell _better_ with such horrible descriptions.
It was all about a guy who tried to sell an indoor fountain. No bids. Then he listed it as "The most ugly fountain you've ever seen!" and wrote something like: "While my wife's away I can finally try to get rid of this ugly piece of scrap..."
In the end the fountain sold for something like $300.

Who said that sleeveless flowing white can't be elegantly slenderizing?

Let's see, Randy, for $7.5K we could sell....

- Your collection of odds 'n ends in your storage shed in a coffee can... if we glue it all together or onto cheapo watches or brooches and call it 'art'

- Your old GI Joe dolls, er...action figures.

Whatchya got that you think might be totally useless?
