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.

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.
