A cynical experiment – LOL!

I’m fascinated by people that make money from nothing on auction sites – like this guy flogging a Casio Vl-1 ‘possessed by Satan’.

So… a weekend tidy up yielded an innocuous cheese grater – and I decided to write a ‘hard case’ ad on TradeMe, taking full advantage of current hoo-hah over rising food prices. Oh Sunday Star-Times hysteria, you came in handy at last.

Best case scenario – lots of hits and comments, with loads of ‘lol!’s with a couple of people getting so carried away they actually bid actual money for something they could pick up themselves with their supermarket shopping.
