Yet another ghost is up for sale on eBay
. This one has received huge amounts of media attention
(stories about it on CNN, MSNBC, etc.) thanks to a sob story that goes along with it. Last year this woman's father died. Now her eight-year-old son Collin thinks that the ghost of his grandfather is still living in the house. So the highest bidder will get the ghost of the grandfather (plus the grandfather's walking stick). The one condition is that the winning bidder has to write a letter to Collin assuring him that the ghost has relocated. I have just a few things to say about this.
First of all, the really scary thing about this auction is the amazingly huge font that the woman feels compelled to write in. What's up with that?
(oops, wrong auction). Second, the woman says that her father was a nice guy, but Collin thinks the grandfather's ghost is evil. In situations like this, the kid always knows best. Therefore, the ghost is evil. And finally, will an evil ghost that isn't trapped in some kind of physical container
(a jar, coke can, toaster, etc.) willingly move houses? Unlikely. So all you're really getting is the walking stick.
And the woman doesn't even provide a picture of that.
