    Amusing and Entertaining--People Really WILL Buy Anything!

    Anyone who has ever visited the online auction site, eBay, knows that it is indeed a vast marketplace with more things for sale than can be imagined. However, you might not realize just how freaky and ludicrous some of those items for sale are until you read the book, Crap I Bought On eBay: 101 Crazy Bizarre, Seriously Weird, Ridiculously Raunchy Items Exposed. Writers Cary McNeal and Beverly Jenkins reveal these unbelievably wacky items in this book. Almost all of the items in the book they actually purchased off of eBay themselves. A few high-priced items like a life-sized dinosaur statue and a USMC tank (too expensive to buy just for the sake of a few laughs and a book deal) make up the final chapter. Be forewarned, some of the material in this book is strictly for adults in nature and is not intended for children (the word "Raunchy" in the title is a good clue). The book gives a brief eBay listing, description, and the price of each item. The listings by themselves are quite entertaining, but are made even more amusing by the running humorous commentary from the authors about each item for sale. Also accompanying many of the listings are emails between the writers and the sellers, made hilarious by the writers playing the part of the devil's advocate asking questions that are quite often sarcastic or smart-alecky in nature to the sellers. Just a few of the extraordinary items that McNeal and Jenkins write about include: a dead body action figure on a gurney, a Mexican fish bobblehead, magickal cat claws, a dinosaur dung fossil, a Mr. T air freshener, a rubber duckie Christmas nativity scene, and a zombie defense helmet protector. Those who are already familiar with Cary McNeal's writing from his first book, 1,001 Facts that Will Scare the S#*t Out of You: The Ultimate Bathroom Reader and the accompanying calendar, 365 Facts that Will Scare the S#*t Out of You 2012 Daily Calendar will not be disappointed. Those of us who are regular readers of McNeal's online humor from his blog, List of the Day, and from his advice column where he plays the role of the Wise Ass on the website, GuySpeak, will instantly recognize his sharp wit, his signature sarcastic wink, and his straight-to-the-point, no-punches-pulled humor that keep us laughing on a daily basis. As always, he writes with a twinkle in his eye and his tongue planted firmly in his cheek. Co-author Beverly Jenkins is a TV producer, director, and writer. She writes the humor blog, Out of Bev's Head...Into Yours. For yourself, or as a fun adult gag gift, this book is sure to bring on the laughs. For those who enjoy humor that pokes fun at things that are ridiculous, inane, and far-fetched, this book is a sure win!
