Blog: Another Ebay howler

Catherine Sleep | 18 November 2004

You make yourself a cheese toastie. You take a bite. You surmise that there is a very vague pattern on the toast that you might just, with a very sympathetic eye, be able to interpret as the Holy Mother.

You take a digital photo, you post it on Ebay. Gullible goons start bidding up to buy this lucky, blessèd toast. You make pots of money.

As I write this, bidding has reached US$18,750 with several days to go.

People, it’s a piece of mouldy toast!
