Everything is For Sale on eBay

Everything is For Sale on eBay

An amusing remark from Kevin Richert's blog:
In the eBay economy, it seems, everything is up for bid.

Including toilet paper which, according to its sellers, came from the infamous Larry Craig stall at the Minneapolis-St. Paul airport.

Which all goes to prove three immutable truths.

1. Never underestimate the free market's never-ending power to match demand with supply.

2. Never underestimate the power of the Craig story — which, as if weighted with concrete blocks, can always manage to sink a foot or two lower.

3. If P.T. Barnum were alive today, he'd be hawking junk on eBay.
