Bargain of the Day: Ark of the Covenant

by Red Wolf

United States: Okay, so at US$10,000,000 it's no one's idea of a bargain and blindingly obvious a case of the seller playing silly buggers, but it's worth a look for the text alone:

This is a recreated Ark of the Covenant, the story of its recreation has been told in the Bonners Ferry Herald, 7183 main, Bonners ferry, Idaho 83805 208-267-5521. It must be noted that this recreated Ark of the Covenant is doing every thing just like the original did 3500 years ago.

Note that since this was posted the Ark has been relisted, and re-relisted, and re-re-relisted, each time with a little more text... after all, if people weren't going for it, it can't have been because of the price, can it?


The most recent says that `the price for the Ark was set by the Ark itself' and that `persons unknown are interfering with my email and phone'. (Yeah, right.)


We still don't even get to see a picture of it.

Wax lyrical

Evangelism, witnessing and similar activitites go by one name here—advertising, and is no different from spam for viagra, penis enlargement products and pornography. We do not take advertising. If you want to advertise your imaginary friend, please spend your own money on your own web space to do so. Any attempts to use the comments section for advertisements will be deleted, and the perpetrator barred, unless they are particularly stupid, in which case I reserve the right to pinch an idea from Teresa Nielsen Hayden and delete all the vowels.

This is not a contacts site. If you are looking for help regarding a particular path, I suggest The Witches' Voice, which does operate a contacts service.

Allowed HTML: a href, b, br, p, strong, em, ol, ul, li, blockquote, q, pre. If your name has accents in it, things will work better if you use the XHTML entities for those letters. The same applies if you are using a word processor to compose your comment, then copying and pasting the text—either turn off curly quotes and avoid using em-dashes, or edit your comment after pasting to get rid of them. Garbled comments usually get deleted.






You must give one to comment, but it will not be displayed and we won't let the spammers have it. If it is obviously false, your comment will be deleted, except in extenuating circumstances.







You must preview your comment first. Blame the spammers.
