eBayer goes for bust in ashtray auction

Mamtastic offer

That stainless steel ashtray in fullNSFW Ashtray vendors take note: one eBayer has discovered an excellent way of drumming up interest in what is hardly the most vibrant second-hand market.

Our correspondent Glenn explains: "Look closely at the pic on this eBay listing, which was causing shockingly un-PC guffaws in Birmingham today..."

Terrific. We're delighted to report that what's on offer here is described as "never been used, very solid and weighty item, in excellent condition". Agreed. The ashtray's not bad, either.

Regular eBay monitors will, of course, remember the shocking case of the 19 inch monitor photograph - an excellent example of the eBay "reflectoporn" genre. There's more such silliness here (NSFW, natch).

It just remains for us to say that we absolutely forbid sniggering readers to molest the vendor of the weighty stainless steel ashtray with innuendo-laden emails and unnecessarily juvenile questions. Thank you. ®
