What's the most bizarre thing you ever bought, online or otherwise?

Asked by deaddolly (3431points) September 20th, 2008

Mine was my blue glow-in-the-dark dildo (that my teen daughter and her friend found later on, tucked away in a foot stool) and, Bubba – my human skull.

I bought a talking Flip Wilson doll off ebay. It is Flip on one side and Geraldine on the other. An identical doll was my very favorite toy as a child and in a sentimental moment I couldn’t help myself. I love that doll. I guess you could say “the devil made me buy that doll.”

I kind of miss previews in Pirate speak.

I don’t consider it so bizarre myself, but it’s probably the item that gets the most intriguing reactions: A bangle made from bent rams horn (similar to this but black)

My neatest ‘doll’ would have to be my Dam Troll in a devil outfit – it keeps me company at work :)

Mine was probably two packs of fake mustaches. They say ‘mustache party’ real big on the front and there’s a different name for each style mustache.

I bought a dildo that had been hand-made from used & rusted razor blades.

I got it for a male friend, so he could send it to an ex-girlfriend who had tried to publicly (and falsely) accuse him of rape.

He sent it to her workplace.

Mustache rides 5 cents?

Why would any girl pay 5ยข, for something that she can get, free?

my ex GF like to dress up for me, so sexy outfits, costumes for some role playing and just to wear around the house for me while doing regular chores, let’s just say I was very distracted when trying to do my own thing.

Definitely my book made of elephant poop that I bought at the St. Louis zoo for $8
the best conversation piece ever, no kidding.
it was a fantabulous purchase

i once bought a children’s lift the flap book about the history of underwear. it’s really cute and funny. they have egyptians, people on the prairie, all kinds of people.

Alright, I’ll admit it. Just last night, browsing through Target, I bought something I’d seen on an infomercial. Since I only cook for one, I thought this might make my life a bit easier. The chicken I cooked on it last night might agree.

I bought one similar to that, sold by George Foreman

I was afraid that if I didn’t buy one, that he’d find out where I live, and beat me up.

jca's avatar

i have the little george foreman grill. it’s great – cooks burgers really fast. it’s put away in the cabinet, in its box, though, and is too much trouble to take out.

Teach you daughter to do it, assuming she’s old enough.

jca's avatar

Jack: right now she’s only 16 months, but if she wants to she can cook for me when she’s old enough.

JackAdams's avatar

My Goodness! 16 months? That’s almost a year, right?

A Rocky Horror Picture Show pillow case with Frankenfurter’s dolled up face. I was quite obsessed as a teenager. God bless eBay.

Body: Did you indeed have that moustache party?

Maybe not the most bizarre, but the most recent bizarre thing I’ve bought
Just bought this hanger. I thought it’d make hanging up my clothes more amusing.

One of my hobbies when on vacation is cursing the local food stores for regional specialties. I once came home with a can of calf brains in milk gravy from a trip to the south.

jca's avatar

Marina: you mean “cruising” not “cursing?” unless you were mad at the stores…..

MacBean's avatar

Animal skulls. Real ones, not replicas. I have a thing for the skeletal system and skulls are my favorite, so I collect.

marinelife's avatar

@jca Thanks for catching my typo. I have cursed stores, but I meant cruising this time!

bodyhead's avatar

@Nimis, Just so you know, I have fully used one of the packages. I’m saving the other packages for a special occasion. There was an amazing burger cooking, beer drinking mustache party. It was simply divine.
