Try searching for "sell," and see what eBay really wants its auctioners to do. (I already sent it in.)

I've already gotten 6 emails with suggestions and I've added 10 pics to the site! Keep them coming and tell your friends about the game (it's addictive... just ask Robert who sent me 18 suggestions!) Thanks everyone!

I just sent in a few – it is rather addictive. I managed to tear myself away, though. :)

Try "dirty socks", "stink bugs", "small children" (gasp!), and "pink elephants". :D

Too bad the ads are country-specific... I don't see them when I go to Google.com...

This will by far be the funniest.

I have a list of funny eBay ads. Not all of them are still live (probably none).

Today has been very busy with all of the suggestions... and I've got a new name for the ads.... eBads (derived from "Bad eBay Ads")! I revamped the page lots today and added in a bunch of recommendations from the group here. I've got some more for tomorrow includings thieves, thugs, and burglars (thanks Ionut for the idea I got from your "murderer" ad). Thanks for posting the game link Philipp – sorry you can't see the live ads but hopefully the images on the site work for you. Actually, I had to find a new host server tonight because all the activity is filling up my limited bandwidth! Thanks everyone for submitting!
