Oh good grief!

The description looks like a child has eaten a box of oil paints and vomited the colours onto the page.

Oh, great! Now it's going to wind up costing me a thousand dollars, because everybody here is going to bid for it like there's no tomorrow!

Wouldn't she be fabulous in a room with a bar or just as a beautiful adornment or conversation piece in any room?


Thanks for asking...

It looks like Beyonce and Dee Snider had a baby who subsequently got caught in an explosion at a makeup factory.

Hey, it's new Absinthe Barbie! biggrin.gif I wonder if she has the regurgitation feature?
Marc
Beautiful... and cheap... worshippy.gif

An absinthe troll doll! Just what I always wanted!
petbottle
Those dark, soulless eyes are creepy!

That's pretty much the last thing I'd ever want to have anywhere in my house... it'd probably give me nightmares. sleepy.gif

I am getting a lot of private messages on this, like "I understand 3 pleasure ports, what are the other 2?" or "How can there be 5 pleasure ports?" So, to keep my inbox from filling up....eye sockets, hello!!!!!
Darxtar
I can't believe someone bought it, and at that price too!

I thought it was obvious....but then again I tend to think outside of the box.

I'll believe it when I see it in photos that
aren't from the auction.


I guess that's an invitation to
rev up yer Photochoppers.

Oh, my! This is my first post on the first thread I've read! What a welcome! blink.gif
Certainly, the buyer and seller were not partaking in absinthe, but acid! How many bottles of green could they have purchased for that obscene amount of money!

With shipping to the US?

Two to three of the higher-end, five to seven of the lower ranges.
Jane Avril
Exactly! And if they drank enough home-made crap (cuz they wasted all their money on the stupid statue), they'd probably end up looking like the fairy.

Maybe the buyer dresses that way.... abs-cheers.gif
Greytail
Somehow at the bottom of all this, I feel Jmfranc is behind it.
traineraz
Why? The doll wasn't chopped into tiny bits to be sold off like a hot Chevy Bronco, was it?

Or perhaps made with fake vintage Barbie outfits?

NEW EBAY ITEM OF THE MONTH
Actually, I think this thread is really supposed to be about the incredibly stupid shit that's usually on ebay, but this one is just a little bit on the funky side

It looks like he means to sell these things on his website, and he's got two of them on ebay right now. But I swear it looks like he just broke his LeMercier fountain, and tried to figure out how to make the remaining parts into something he could sort of use.

I think the bulb on top is sealed, so the little corked tube is the only way to put water in, and I guess the ice has to be crushed really, really small, and funneled in. All so you can make yourself one glass at a time, by yourself, alone in your darkened home, after that bitch left you like you always knew she would...

ps- He also went to heroic lengths to find a glass that would fit under the spigot. Judging from the pic, it looks like that spoon would just barely be able to stand vertically under the spigot, which means most absinthe glasses wouldn't, especially not with a sugar cube on top of them.

I think it's from the "Slutty Barbie" collection.

Bill, some fine fountain! What did it go for on eBay?

Other than the crushed ice problem, it is sweet. chickawow.gif

Just take a second to look at how functional it would be. Feel sorry for the Newb that buys the thing.
thegreenimp
Use it as a perfume dispenser. dev.gif

Or Marijuana smoke dispenser.

Bong bong bong. We have a wonker!
Jane Avril
At first glance, it looks like the glass, spoon and sugar are directly under the spigot. D'oh...bad vendor! Bad vendor! blink.gif het.gif No louching there!

The water reservoir on that thing is similar to what I saw on the apparatus used as a fountain at the Cantada II bar in Paris.

The sphere was a bit smaller, and suspended from a swinging metal frame. The barman poured water from a carafe into the neck of the tube. No ice was used, but I guess that fits in with the way things are done in Paris nowadays.

Instead of a spigot, it emptied through a syringe-like tube with an embedded valve.

That thing is so convoluted it's kind of ridiculous. After making the poor bartender fill that thing twice, I just had him set me up with a pitcher.
