That eBay thing - new sitcom

You'll have seen this doing the rounds, probably. It came to my attention over on PooterGeek. Anyway, you may have seen it, but if not, don't go to bed tonight without reading the Member Profile for mr_bo11ox on eBay - in particular his "Feedback left for others."

I was crying with laughter last night, reading some of them, and I missed the beginning of Miss Marple as a result. It just makes me so happy that someone has livened up a dull corner of our crappy little world like this.

I have a couple of personal favourites, some of which are listed by the Pooter. One made me think Simon might like it: "Item never received. Apart from that, perfect transaction."

And there's something of the comedy genius about:

FAST PAYER. GREAT BAYER. LEO SAYER.

or these:

  • Sporadic shelling and sniper fire near sellers home did not delay transaction A+

  • THE POAST MAN BRORT THE ITEM TOO MY HOUS WEAR I LIV. THANKS

  • “Like a circle in a spiral…..like an egg on Rod Hull’s face…” etc. GREAT SELLER

  • A++ USA SELLA. However I'm giving a 'protest neg' over illegal US-led Iraq war.

  • "Is this guy a good seller?" IS J-LO A TALENTLESS BAGGY-4RSED WAILING BINT? YES!

  • DVD BOUGHT IN GOOD FAITH - TURNS OUT TO BE A PIRATE COPY. PIKEY SELLER. D-.
  • Reply by mac.er: just some guys,didn't know anything about DVD.COPY? mate,no copy on ebay,be wise
    Follow-up by mr_bo11ox: SELLER IS GUILTIER THAN LEE HARVEY OSWALD

  • GREAT ITEM GREAT SELLER GREAT PACKING GREAT SCOTT WHO LET THESE GOATS IN HERE

  • At only 250g, easily one of the lightest sellers on the bay. GOOD WORK

  • Item quite literally CAME THROUGH MY LETTERBOX shortly after payment.


I could go on, but look for yourself.

    Some real classics on there.

  • Yep, that one sounds right up my street and strangely true to life.
