Colorado Woman Selling Snow on eBay


I found this story today!

As if Colorado residents don't have enough snow to dig out from, one resident is offering more for a price on eBay. Starting bids were holding steady Friday at 99 cents for snow from "Blizzard I and Blizzard II" being offered by Mary Walker. She and husband, Jim, got the idea for selling snow after shoveling mounds from two storms a week apart that together dumped more than 4 feet along the Front Range.

"I figured eBay has ghosts and all sorts of weird stuff, so why not snow?" said Walker, who teaches business workshops on employee communications.

How much snow 99 cents or whatever the winning bid gets depends. Walker's auction notice suggests avoiding shipping and handling charges by stopping by their home and picking it up _ in a dump truck.

Only 10 offerings of snow are available and the proceeds are earmarked for a used snowblower for Jim or a pair of shovels.

She says she doesn't really expect to find a buyer for their blizzard overstock.
"We just wanted to just give some folks a laugh," she said.

Which human is more stupid -- the one that took the time to list snow on EBay or the one who bid on the snow? Sounds like a project for your new institute.

Hey! I used to live in Colorados. Humans, except my buddies' humans, have got to be stupids to stay in Colorado.

Gee, kinda like the can of fresh airs and pet rocks. I've got a pet stick. Anydog?... Anydog?


P.S. Tubey, didn't get to see nor hears the game. Heard the first half was okay. I think the Corn Heads better take their cornsbread home and find a new recipe.

I would gladly pay for some snow! We haven't seen so much as a snowflake here in VA, we barely get frost! Someone send me some snow please, but label the package as "yummy chocolate!" Cuz if mama sees anything regarding snow on the package, she'll send it back or worse....melt it!

Poseidon, I hope someone sends both of us a box of "yummy chocolate!"
