A hard-up UK eBayer is offering his penis as permanent advertising space - for a starting bid of £3,000. The "genuine auction" vendor explains: "I will have my penis permanently tatooed for advertising your internet company logo," and adds: "If they wish, the winning company of the bid may film the Tattoo being created - this could be streamed live from their website as well as use the footage for later promotions."

Good Lord. Of course, this isn't the first time someone has offered to become a throbbing gristle billboard. Back in 2002, a similar auction ended in ecommerce coitus interruptus when those eBay spoilsports forced a premature withdrawl.

And once again, the seller does not note the available image area, so we have no idea whether we're talking bt.com or lastminute.com or indeed a majestic http://www.llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwyll-llantysiliogogogoch.com/. Time will tell - unless, of course, eBay decides to cut this one short, too. ®
