A Chinese auction site, which is the equivalent to eBay, has recently banned a potential online seller from profiting from the sale of the saliva of pretty teenage girls.
If this brings to mind the idea of trying to sell lint, used band-aids, coffee grinds, or other useless items to anyone dumb enough to be the highest bidder, well then, you go and caveat emptor.
Why would anyone in their right (or wrong) mind want to buy the saliva of pretty teenage girls? This is the question.
The answer, at least according to the seller, is that the saliva is “a tonic” and a virtual steal at $4.00 for a small bottle.
Each bottle was offered for sale accompanied by a listing of the pictures of the 18-year-old girl the saliva was supposedly taken from. After a series of complaints, Taobao auction house deleted the listings.
The seller, whose alias is Zhou, claims that his interest in placing the ads was just to see how far he could go with them. He says he will be moving on to market ‘drool’ next, but admits that so far he has not even sold one bottle of his… er, interesting products.
“The drool was all collected from 18-year-old pretty girls when they were sleeping. And buyers can pay later after they certified the authenticity of this product,” Zhou told the press.
