Check out this moron on e=bay and what he has come up. Great way to get himself or someone else kiled.

I especially like the "plug" he uses and his evident regard for safety.

It's obviously a joke. But if someone does purchase this, I would think the seller could be in big trouble if the buyer actually plugs this appliance into a 120V receptacle and gets hurt, or electrocuted.

"Disclaimer: I the seller accept no responsibility for the use of this item for any purpose and do NOT recommend plugging this in for any reason. I do guarantee that if plugged into a regular household receptacle (excluding G.F.I.'s) that the potential for fire, electrical shock and/or extreme discomfort will be present."

Extremely funny? Kinda spooky actually. Someone has actually bid on this, so maybe they'll actually use it.
It's spooky that some people are allowed to breed.
