Ghost for Sale 

This is truly a heartwarming tale. A woman, to assuage the fears of her young son that he would be haunted by his grandfather (the woman's father) has offered Grandpa's ghost up for sale on Ebay. Isn't that touching? No. It's not. It's retarded human interest rubbish.

But this is the interesting part:
A message left with San Jose, Calif.-based eBay Inc. in San Jose, Calif., was not immediately returned Saturday.
First, I don't understand why they would want to contact Ebay about this, unless they want Ebay to say something cute to make the cute story even cuter. But why didn't Ebay take them up on it? Sounds like good marketing fodder to me: "Our service helps young children cope with the deaths of relatives and you can unload all your old shit onto compulsive internet shoppers."

What is Ebay hiding? Hmm? HMM?!?!
