What's the silliest thing you can find on Ebay?

To start you off, a single crisp with one side a different colour.

How much is shipping? How will they protect it?

And can you trust them give how it is all they seem to be selling?

Personal attacks from those who troll show their own insecurity. They cannot use reason to show the message to be wrong so they try to feel somehow superior by attacking the messenger.

They cling to their attacks and ignore the message time and time again.

A woman once successfully sued Walkers crisps because the crisps in a packet she bought were not whole. I fear for the continuation of the human race.

Nobody bid on it and he's relisted it! That will have cost him 36p (again).

You don't need to trust them, there is Ebay money back guarantee. That would give them a laugh. You could buy it, click the return damaged item button, and he'd have to pay the return postage!

Only in France. In the UK they clean them. The ones in motorway service stations have a timer saying when they were last cleaned.

That was the scam. They're less than 50% potato so they can't be crisps
even if it says crisps on the can so we don't have to pay VAT. I think P&P
got away with it for a couple of years before a slumbering politician woke
up. You have to watch those trade agreements.

If you were placed in the back of a lorry, such that there was 99% air and 1% you, you'd still collide with the side when it went round a corner. You need some kind of structure to the air, like bubblewrap. Then she'd sue them because she ate the bubblewrap because there were no instructions forbidding it. I propose a new law. Anyone suing for something stupid gets shot on sight. Like the woman who didn't know coffee was hot, balanced it between her legs, then drove off and wondered why it scorched her vagina. Some people would pay for that.

Eat it, provide written testimony it tasted foul, and send back a crumb, carefully packaged of course.

As is usually the case on the internet, I found conflicting articles. These two say they ARE crisps:

https://www.tasteofhome.com/article/pringles-arent-really-potato-chips/
https://recipes.howstuffworks.com/pringles.htm

These two say they AREN'T chips:

https://uk.news.yahoo.com/pringles-are-actually-biscuits-and-not-crisps-113530894.html
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/7490346.stm

Since one of them says the decision was reversed later in the courts, I would have said they used to be not crisps and now are crisps.

But.... they don't say crisps on the packet.

Final word - I looked at a shopping receipt. I'm charged 20% VAT on Pringles, so they're crisps.

It all comes down to government theft, they didn't make those crisps, they have no right to my money. FUCKING LEFTY THEIVES!

And why the fuck do Americans screw up every word, you've changed chips to fries then crisps to chips!

No there isn't. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know coffee is hot. She's a fucking moron. MacDonalds provided the hot drink, what she does with it afterwards is her problem.

It was hotter than it was supposed to be, and they had previously been warned.

When you make coffee at home, you boil a kettle, it could very easily be almost 100C, especially black coffee. I don't think MacDonalds have broken the laws of physics and made water go above 100C in liquid form.

Doesn't work for the weak or lazy, no, but it works for the fit healthy ones, the ones we want to continue the human race.

And of course your own family is free to help, and so are charities. You'd donate to the needy wouldn't you? Are you saying hardly anyone would? That would prove your point, we don't want it.

The contention was MacDonalds held the coffee at 190F, considerably hotter
than other restaurants. I believe that was the case. I always found it
annoying to have to drive for several miles before the stuff was
drinkable.

The woman had verifiable medical expenses from having her crotch scalded.
She asked for $20000 to offset those expenses and MacDonalds offered $800.
At that point she engaged an ambulance chaser who was good at his job.

That's the other side of 'frivilous' lawsuits. Corporations seldom accept
any responsibility figuring they have lawyers on the payroll and might as
well use them.

I would not find the big picture. We should get a group that is tasked with
looking at that. Oh. We have it.

Again, does not mean they do it well. They do not. But better than not having
it.
