#10 Ad Space on Forehead – A man auctioned off 30 days of ad space on his forehead to be used as a billboard.

Andrew Fischer, from Omaha, Nebraska said: “The winner will be able to send me a tattoo or have me go to a tattoo parlour and get a temporary ink tattoo on my forehead and this will be something they choose, a company name or domain name, perhaps their logo”.

The auction reached $322.

#9 Grandmother – A 10-year-old girl from England tried to sell her Grandmother on eBay. She advertised her as ”annoying” but ”cuddly”. Despite a number of bids being made for Grandma, the listing was taken down soon after. Read more.

#8 Brussels Sprout – In December 2005, a brussels sprout, which had been cooked on Christmas Day was listed by Andrew Henderson from England. It sold for £99.50 with the proceeds going to charity.

#3 Human Liver – A man from Florida auctioned off his liver on eBay. The bid reached $5.7 million before it was taken down from the site, due to the fact that it’s illegal to sell human organs on eBay.

#2 Ghost In a Jar – A jar that a man believed to contain a ghost was put up for auction on eBay because it was terrorizing the owner. The seller, Teajay101, claimed that he “would not be held responsible” if the “black thing” escaped the jar, and that “all sales are final.” After numerous bids, the auction ended seven days later at a whopping $50,922, but unfortunately the winning bidder did not pay.
