eBayer unleashes defecating dog to punt kayak

Crap selling technique?

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Regular readers will know that there are few holds barred down at eBay when it comes to attracting attention to some must-have item.

Photo from eBay listing showing kayak and crapping dogIndeed, we have in the past celebrated the gearbox sex doll shocker, the ashtray cleavage thriller, and the legendary 19 inch monitor flash.

All good, clean fun; unlike one of the snaps accompanying this sale of a K1 Sipre Arrow kayak, in which the owner's dog has evidently decided to indulge in a dirty protest against the world's favourite tat bazaar.

Readers can decide for themselves if this really is a crap selling technique or a cunning canine-supported plan to get a bit of free publicity - in which case it's worked. Expect eBay photos of Franklin Mint heritage collectible figurines featuring copulating animals in the background in due course. ®
