A good read. A+++++++++++
2003-07-04 01:00:15 PM  
It was good - but not THAT good.
2003-07-04 01:00:55 PM  
Go away PLA!
2003-07-04 01:02:37 PM  
looks like red box chilli pepper of pla (phone losers of america) fame.
2003-07-04 01:02:47 PM  
Haha. Good stuff.
2003-07-04 01:02:59 PM  
If by "read" you mean "cock," well, then, um, you're weird.

RBCP is the man!
2003-07-04 01:03:30 PM  
submitter is lying, not funny.
2003-07-04 01:06:20 PM  
If by comedic, you mean crying for attention, then yes it was.
2003-07-04 01:06:44 PM  
Sort of funny, but I hate all the last-second ebay bots, so in effect I still hate ebay. That makes it not really that funny, and equals out to 'beh'.

how strange
2003-07-04 01:08:09 PM  
This guy rules
2003-07-04 01:08:29 PM  
Why was it a complaint if he got his money back?
2003-07-04 01:09:57 PM  

If by comedic, you mean crying for attention, then yes it was.

I think you are overanalyzing this just a tad. . .lighten up buddy.
2003-07-04 01:10:15 PM  
Great read.

Tell me why (I got that Alf alarm clock)
Tell me why (I bid on Shatner's old toupee)
They had it on eBay

I'll buy ... your knick-knack
Just check ... my feedback
"A++!" they all say
They love me on eBay

Gonna buy (a slightly-damaged golf bag)
Gonna buy (some Beanie Babies, new with tag)

Found him on eBay

I am the type who is liable to snipe you
With two seconds left to go, whoa
Got Paypal or Visa, what erev'll please
As long as I've got the dough

I'll buy ... your tchotchkes
Sell me ... your watch, please
I'll buy (I'll buy, I'll buy, I'll buy ...)
I'm highest bidder now

(Junk keeps arriving in the mail)
(From that worldwide garage sale) (Dukes Of Hazard ashtray)
(Hey! A Dukes Of Hazard ashtray)
Oh yeah ... (I bought it on eBay)

2003-07-04 01:11:14 PM  
sad. i'd like the last 60 seconds of my life back please.
2003-07-04 01:11:32 PM  
Was it just me or was that possibly the worst attempt at humor that I have ever read on Fark?
2003-07-04 01:15:39 PM  
brianewart, it's not all bad:
Praise : Received the CD very promptly!!
Response by phoneloser-rbcp - Hope you enjoy the 1 good song on this CD.

I remember that this guy posted a link to his ebay feedback in a classified recently. Apparently somebody decided to submit it ;-p
2003-07-04 01:20:34 PM  
i have tears this is so damn funny. i can think of one or two people i know who would pull something like this.
2003-07-04 01:20:41 PM  
Goddamn that new weird al CD cracks me up, too bad i didn't pay for it

/RIAA target
2003-07-04 01:23:54 PM  
I thought it was funny...
2003-07-04 01:25:28 PM  
That's funny? Oh, well, if it makes you laugh, who am I to judge?
2003-07-04 01:25:42 PM  
i like this better

2003-07-04 01:26:42 PM  
that didn't work, needs more coffee​rId=andy 46477&items=250

2003-07-04 01:27:32 PM  
the feedback he's left for others is amusing, as well.
2003-07-04 01:28:25 PM  
Here's some more funny eBay feedback.
2003-07-04 01:30:41 PM  
I love how people here don't think that's funny when it obviously is. Those must be the same lame jacka$$es that laugh when EVERY FRIDAY the "photoshop phriday" link gets plastered all over the site like a friday night whore on her favorite corner....It's sad that people weren't born with the ability to laugh at things that are funny, unless their nerdy friends say it's funny first.
RBCP is one of the funniest people on the planet. You're all just jealous biatches.
2003-07-04 01:31:27 PM  
P.S. Cactus
2003-07-04 01:33:37 PM  
Here's some more funny eBay feedback.

My eyes are watering I'm laughing so hard.

Praise: Tub o jelly. 12 gallon belly. Greasy layers, oh so smelly. SEXUALLY ENTICING

What's up with this guy?????
2003-07-04 01:33:38 PM  
Oh, and here I was thinking humor was subjective. Silly me!
2003-07-04 01:36:48 PM  
Best link ever!
2003-07-04 01:38:24 PM  
Yep, silly you.
2003-07-04 01:54:58 PM  
Arbie is a clever little monkey
2003-07-04 01:57:25 PM  
Agreed, ToStupidTooCare's link is wayyyy better. That made my day. :)
2003-07-04 02:00:08 PM  
2003-07-04 02:00:12 PM  
Praise: I do not like him, Sam I am. I do not like green eggs and ham.
Response by miligram - Lay off my green eggs you prick! As for the ham, well, you can jam it!
Follow-up by andy46477 - Sam does not jam ham. Not a pound. Not a gram.

Tell me that's not funny.
2003-07-04 02:00:28 PM  
Most of the second link isn't as good I don't think...this, however, is comic gold:

chocha (3) (not a registered user) Jul-01-99 02:22:06 PST
Praise: My friend's mommy told me what Chocha means in Spanish. Then she showed me. A++!

Guess it's funnier if you speak Spanish...though if you're smart you can guess what it means I suppose.
2003-07-04 02:01:02 PM  

Very funny. Thank you. It made my day.
2003-07-04 02:01:21 PM  
not as good as the one by toostupid, but came across it when looking at the first one.

here​rId=king cutie&items=25
2003-07-04 02:09:13 PM  
Whoever submitted this is my hero!! THaNX
2003-07-04 02:16:14 PM  
This guy is an awesome Ashat, I hope to buy from him.

Whoah... this section of fark looks a bit different now....
2003-07-04 02:17:21 PM  
dogfather_jr, Vici Rhombic420


I have to give credit to for the link. And i didn't even get when i first read the his feedback how he matched his responses to the names of the buyers/sellers. I just thought they were comments made at random. stupid me.
2003-07-04 02:17:31 PM  
ToStupidTooCare: Thank you for the link! It was excellent! Like a ferret in my pants, it gives me great intrigue and pain! Wheee!
2003-07-04 02:27:54 PM  
It reads like someone from PWOT started selling on Ebay.
2003-07-04 02:29:10 PM  
Ferret in your pants? Man, thats hardcore.
2003-07-04 02:29:12 PM  
Great link. LoL
2003-07-04 02:36:07 PM  
that was really hilarious
2003-07-04 02:36:32 PM  
Praise: Rainbows are pretty. I don't know why I shoot at them.

Probably trying to hit those damn sneaky leprechauns.
2003-07-04 02:49:44 PM  
well, i found it VERY funny...
2003-07-04 02:50:36 PM  
TooStupid, great link, A+++. I remember somebody had put it up in the Ghost in a Jar thread, and that's where I found it. Brilliant!
2003-07-04 02:50:44 PM  
har har! bork!bork!bork!
2003-07-04 02:54:15 PM  

funny as hell, in my opinion:

Praise : Great seller! Would buy from again anytime!
Response by phoneloser-rbcp - I have listed other items since this transaction, he never bought any of them.

Praise : Thanks a million!
Response by phoneloser-rbcp - Buyer is being misleading, only thanked me 2 times.

2003-07-04 03:01:51 PM  
Praise : Quick shipment, great commincation

Response by phoneloser-rbcp - TOO BAD I DIDN'T SELL YOU A DICTIONARY! HAHAHA! I KILL ME!"

2003-07-04 03:13:16 PM  
I paid and he never delivered. I want my two bucks back, with interest.
2003-07-04 03:25:11 PM  
Like the others said, that Ebay Andy46477 guy has the best feedback ever. Ever.
2003-07-04 03:26:03 PM  
I thought it was great A+++ would read again!
2003-07-04 03:36:28 PM  
That guy rules!
2003-07-04 03:36:39 PM  
2003-07-04 03:53:29 PM  
Be sure to leave the feedback he's left for others
2003-07-04 03:54:50 PM  
Man, makes me want to buy from this guy, just to get his amazing response to my feedbax...

2003-07-04 04:02:14 PM  
Thanks for waking my son up with my hysterical laughter.
2003-07-04 04:02:19 PM  
lol. I really liked this post. =)
2003-07-04 04:30:11 PM  
very funny. i like it when people with smooth genitalia make me laugh. thats always held a special place in my heart.
2003-07-04 04:42:57 PM  
back in the days when you didn't have to buy something to leave feedback, you could leave feedback for every single becky on ebay if you had that much free time.
2003-07-04 05:12:04 PM  
Andy's is way better. The feedback and responses in the topic link seem like they're written by someone -trying- to be funny but really isn't.
2003-07-04 05:27:46 PM  
Jeez, can't anyone post something funny without it having to be the best ever of its kind? What a bitter bunch of old ladies you all are!
2003-07-04 05:34:03 PM  
what kinda nerd do u gotta be to write this crap
2003-07-04 06:06:33 PM  
Rberry -

There are strict, unspoken rules to humor. If you TRY HARD to be funny (i.e. - submitting a link to your own feedback) and fall a bit short, it is mathematically LESS funny. But if you cleverly drop humor like horse turds on a canyon trail WITHOUT trying (or with great subtlety) then it is exponentially more comedic.

Think - Joe Piscapo vs. Peter Sellers.

If you want a great read, however - check out rbcp's fark bio link. Seriously.
2003-07-04 06:24:49 PM  
Wow. A lot of hate for the person who wrote this stuff... but Farkers are always like that.
2003-07-04 07:39:11 PM  
Funny stuff. And the gnome agrees.

I wonder if anyone sells cheese on ebay.
2003-07-04 08:16:53 PM  
and what gnome would that be EXACTLY??
2003-07-04 08:17:03 PM  
This man is the king.
2003-07-04 08:37:39 PM  
Haw haw, this link is teh funny.

(Well, not really. Fairly stupid attempt at humor, actually.)
2003-07-04 09:59:27 PM  
Oh god! Even the positive people!!
2003-07-04 11:46:33 PM  

Now THAT'S feedback!
2003-07-05 03:04:52 AM  
"Good seller, she gets to drink from the FIRE HOSE!"
2003-07-05 04:43:13 AM  
I don't know why everyone always tries to be such a hardass on here, this ebay guy is funny as hell.
2003-07-05 05:10:59 AM  
This guy is great. Best laugh I had this morning.
2003-07-05 12:06:38 PM  
A++ Would read again!
2003-07-05 12:54:45 PM  
Mmmmm... cheese.
2003-07-05 01:54:44 PM  
Ebay is such a wonderful breeding ground for humor.


It _was_ funny.
2003-07-05 04:41:15 PM  
Praise: I am new in America! Thank you eBay for wonderful wife! I will beat her often!
Response by wifebeater - You're Very Welcome.

2003-07-05 08:04:33 PM  
chuckle, bad man!
2003-07-05 10:19:43 PM  
And for those of us who couldn't get enough of andy46477's feeback, it turns out he left more under other aliases:


So out of curiosity, could people leave feedback for anyone back then or did this guy get into ebay's dbase?
2003-07-05 10:41:06 PM  
I think its funny ass shiat. Great Humor. The retards who don't like it are probably laughing thier asses off to yet another lame ass strongbad email, or better yet PHOTOSHOP FRIDAY!! that needs to be posted every friday like clockwork, so they are lame anyway.

Don't turn the strongbad up too loud, or you'll wake up your mom.
