I can't possibly be the only person who doesn't believe this is funny.
2003-02-28 03:59:24 PM  
Some of the listings really are the guy who is selling a photo of himself watching the giant cheeto auction.

In other news...cheetos are delicious
2003-02-28 04:14:29 PM  
C'mon people, hasn't the Cheeto thing really ran it's course? Let's move on...

eBay: Now with 53% more Farkage!
2003-02-28 05:43:21 PM  
This is pure gold. I love the Internet.

this whole ebay cheeto phenomena has completed the arc of amusing - totally played out - amusing again.

my favorite:​&categor y=1467

I would like to make the announcement that all funds made from this auction will go towards the purchase of fish sticks and tartar sauce.

at least they realize the absurdity.

but seriously, reading about this shiat is one thing. but if anyone actually BUYS this crap, he is an asshat of the highest order...
2003-02-28 05:48:34 PM  
yea, they'll do that.
2003-02-28 05:50:03 PM  
...and so we shall look back at this date as the true downfall of society...
2003-02-28 05:50:29 PM  

That's why it's funny...because it's absurd. The spin-off auctions are what make this great. Who would have thought that a humungeous cheeto could become a pop-culture icon!?

Pure brilliance.

Don't want to be a stick in the mud, but this is not a cool thing. It's kind of a watered down DOS attack if you think about it.

These listings cause ebay to loose money through man hours, hardware costs etc. Running a site like Ebay taint cheap boys.

That cost will have to be recovered, who do you think is going to pay for it? People who list. In the long run, people list less.

This isn't funny, it's not a good thing at all.
2003-02-28 05:53:41 PM  

eBay is one of the most profitable businesses in the world...I don't think a cheeto will bring down the machine.

Lighten's hilarious.
2003-02-28 05:54:30 PM  
Dare I say it? Cheeto Mania????
2003-02-28 05:55:07 PM  
Hehe...I said "mung"

2003-02-28 05:55:51 PM  
you are being a stick in the mud. funny shiat, plain and simple.
2003-02-28 05:56:06 PM  
yes, comedy gold... "Bootleg pictures guys looking at giant cheeto "
2003-02-28 05:57:40 PM  
A single cheeto slips through QA, brings down Ebay, which dominoes the whole economy into the brink of chaos and war.
2003-02-28 06:01:15 PM  
The Cheeto's early work was the best, before he sold out. It used to be about the cholesterol, man...
2003-02-28 06:02:05 PM  

but seriously, reading about this shiat is one thing. but if anyone actually BUYS this crap, he is an asshat of the highest order...

How about the ones who are actually selling shiat...???​=1469

And I quote from the ad..
This is a one of a kind photo of a turd piece actually containing remnants of the Great Ebay Cheeto!! WOW! Sealed in a ziplock bag for freshness. The picture is only an artists rendering. Life Size. BONUS: Real Cheeto Turd Piece contains nuts and corn.

What...?? No Cheeto's in the Real one???
/tries to keep down dinner.

Too much Cheeto Auction Action is Barely Enough.
2003-02-28 06:09:25 PM  
The Massive Cheeto is officially the worst ever Instant Internet Celebrity.

What can I to test the waters, ;)
2003-02-28 06:23:26 PM  
I wish that I had something to sell... placing Cheeto in my ad would result in more hits (and prospective buyers) than I could imagine...

2003-02-28 06:23:42 PM  
Thus we reap the sewings of our cheeto bidding non-hilarity! Doom is upon us all!

Cheetos suck....
2003-02-28 06:27:36 PM  
Buyer beware: cheetos never prosper.
2003-02-28 06:32:56 PM  

Great image- nice job. Very appropriate.
2003-02-28 06:35:10 PM  
this is just plain funny
2003-02-28 06:37:22 PM  
Can you say "cheesy"?

I knew you could.

Nostradamus predicted these events:

"In the last of the second there will be a great and encompassing orange glowing mass that will captivate the attention of the masses of the world."

Mark my words, its the beginning of the end.

"These listings cause ebay to loose money through man hours, hardware costs etc. Running a site like Ebay taint cheap boys."

Tough titty for them. That's the cost of doing business. The amount of insane shiat that gets advertised (and sold) on Ebay on a daily basis is staggering. That's part of what keeps them running. If they can't take the good with the bad, they're more than welcome to close up shop. Lived without them before, we'll live without them after.

As long as they take those crooks at PayPal with them...
2003-02-28 06:49:15 PM  
Yep, hate to admit it. But it has run it's course.
2003-02-28 06:50:47 PM  
Oh man, the 'Picture of ME looking at Ebay massive Cheeto!' has to be the best thing I've ever seen on eBay. Well maybe that's an overstatement.
2003-02-28 06:58:09 PM  
Coming soon...

(Mirror for stuff on Fark and to justify the existence of my T1.)
2003-02-28 06:58:49 PM

"Buyer beware: cheetos never prosper."

ExParrott, I don't know whether to laugh my ass off or kick yours.
2003-02-28 07:24:23 PM  
"but seriously, reading about this shiat is one thing. but if anyone actually BUYS this crap, he is an asshat of the highest order..."

Maybe he should just buy this:​=1469
2003-02-28 07:24:42 PM

someone eat the damn cheeto so ppl stop posting about it...
2003-02-28 07:30:37 PM  
I don't know how all this happened, but it's farkING GAY!

Has the net gotten so lame that people ACTUALLY think that this is funny?

Man, I miss 3rd grade.
2003-02-28 07:34:01 PM  
OMFG! They're actually selling an asshat!
2003-02-28 07:36:30 PM  
It's not so much funny as it is art.
2003-02-28 07:38:57 PM  
OMG, This is hilarious!
2003-02-28 07:44:39 PM  
I thought I was gonna crap myself with a Cheeturd when I saw this one.

Huge Giant Cheeto Turd Piece! Like New!
2003-02-28 07:46:33 PM  
Its 7:46 and I've been drunk for an hour!
2003-02-28 08:02:13 PM  
Still funny.

But this is coming from the guy who sold WTO shiat on ebay... then sold Kingdome shiat on ebay... just to make sure all the news broadcasts in the NW had a copy of his purty face.
2003-02-28 08:03:05 PM  
"a good wholesome cheeto"

Now we know he's full of shiat.
2003-02-28 08:12:31 PM  
"These listings cause ebay to loose money through man hours, hardware costs etc. Running a site like Ebay taint cheap boys."

You know what else isn't cheap? Advertising, that's what. Just look at how many hits a Cheeto & a half eaten Burrito have created. Even if only a small fraction of the traffic takes a wander through the legitmate auctions it's good for bussiness.
2003-02-28 08:17:24 PM  
I'll admit it - I'm amused...
