Just when I thought Stupidity had taken a Vacation.

It rears its ugly head and blows me a raspberry.

I would never claim to have "seen it all" but I am one step closer. I have seen the ultimate in moron and it is ugly. Someone here in my great state, not even that far away from where I live has actually created a listing on e-Bay for...wait for it...ready?

An Air Guitar.

That's right. The imaginary guitar that people pretend to play when they are truly jamming to the great hits of the 80's. No offense 80's fans - I know you two are reading this!

Now the good news is that they are offering free shipping so the guitar can be yours for a simple bid. Unfortunately you can't return it if it arrives dinged or damaged. I kid you not. They actually completed all the stips and even posted a disclaimer announcing that it was a joke.

But it gets better. Keep going to page 3. There is a SECOND air guitar listed. And this one comes with a demo video. For $19.99 shipping you can have it shipped directly to your home. This bid was even linked to a charitable organization claiming that all the proceeds from the sale of this empty box go straight to...wait for it...it's another good one!

A project supporting black bears. Because there is nothing I like more than a hike in the north GA mountains to hear a black bear jam out on his air guitar.

Someday I will find a way to get paid to walk around V8-ing stupid people.
