Can't wait to check out more books by Cary McNeal...these are hilarious!
D. DuMoulin
Be forewarned, some of the material in this book is strictly for adults in nature and is not intended for children (the word "Raunchy" in the title is a good clue).
C. Biltz
Some of the things in it are just crazy… like a fart filter, so you don't ever have to worry about smelly farts again!

Format: Paperback
One of my favorite things to look for on online shopping sites are the odd, bizarre, or weird items that people are selling. I've created a whole wish list on Amazon called "Crappy Products List." Of course eBay, the mother of all P2P online shopping sites, would have an even more varied and frankly disturbing collection of items that make you scratch your head in wonder. "Crap I Bought on eBay" is and amusing collection of some of the wackiest items that you can buy these days. Some of the products are intentionally weird, and for those you marvel that someone would go to trouble of actually manufacturing them. Other items are weird due to the fact that they are being sold well outside of their original intended niche. For those all the humor is purely unintentional.

Cary McNeal and Beverly Jenkins, the authors of this book, actually bought every single item that it's presented herein. All the products include a detailed description, the price, as well as the e-mail exchange with the seller (where applicable) and humorous comments by the authors. Some of the items that are included are "Giantmicrobes Head Lice Plush," "Belt Buckle: `Eat Cheese or Die'," "Viagra Clock," "USMC M60A1 Tank" (the actual tank; not a toy model), "Israeli Military Gas Mask," "Dinosaur Dung Fossil," and many others.

Due to an extremely graphic nature of some items described herein, only adults should read this book. (I know, I know, now every teenage boy would want to read it.) Also, if you are easily offended or scandalized, then this book will not be for you. Otherwise this is a very humorous, amusing and well designed. It's a fun book that would make a good silly gift for someone who really appreciates this kind of humor.

I must disclaim that I have known Bev for almost 20 years. She is one of the most genuinely funny, smart and smartly funny people I've known. It's great to see her talents finally in widespread print.

As for the book, it's wonderful. Funny, sharp, (as noted) crass in the best possible sense of the world, and without a doubt geared towards an adult audience that likes humor that takes both the high road, the low road and the subway at the same time.

I tend to read at night, and as such when reading humor books, I tend to wake my significant other when reading particularly funny books. She can tell how funny a book is by how difficult it is for her to get to sleep. Let's just say she slept badly for two nights straight. This is a book you can fly through in no time, but it's a tear-inducing bit of work here. Now, the items themselves are pretty absurd... nightmare fuel, in some cases. That would be amusing enough, without any commentary. However, that's the magic of the book. The author commentary (on the level of Mystery Science Theater 3000's best writing often), interactions with auction people and feedback are gut-wrenchingly funny.

Also, it's not fit for kids. Seriously. This one is your book, adult folks. However, be prepared for high quality poop jokes, sexual innuendo and outright profanity. All of which are used like surgical instruments in the most craftsmanlike manner to bring you the funny.

Buy this.

Format: Paperback
First, let me say that I love reading Cary's "List of the Day" and I also really liked his other book, 1001 Things to Scare the Crap Out of You. This book isn't a random book of facts, but instead is a collection of 101 things the author(s) bought on ebay. Apparently they went for the craziest things they could find. Each item has at least one full color photo, along with the price paid, as well as the ebay seller's description. The fun starts when Cary (and Beverly) add their own thoughts to the mix, and often include "back and forth" emails between the buyers and sellers of said items. Here is my only complaint....when I purchsed the item it did not mention in the description that there were two different chapters on "adult" items, "Crap for your junk" and "Adults only crap" When I picked up my 11 year old from school, she opened the box with the book in it and started flipping through it. We both laughed at the giant false teeth and the "cowboy gray squirrel head mount" but I about drove off the road when she asked me "What's that?" and showed me a picture of a "butt plug with disco lights." Not something I wanted to explain to my 11 year old. So, not having a little heads up about those two chapters in the item description was a bummer. I still enjoyed the book, but it's certainly not something you want your kids to flip through.

*****UPDATE November 29, 2011*****
I am aware that the current description of the book mentions some of the more adult oriented "items" listed in the book, however, when I orginally wrote my review (September 27, 2011) this description was not in place. The description which names some of the items was added October 4, 2011. I am pleased that Amazon chose to change the description to give a little more insight as to what was in the book, but I stand by original review.

I was truly amazed at what was purchased on eBay in this book. From dinosaur dung, to deeds for moon property, to taxidermy cowboy squirrels...you'll be cracking up at the insane items listed in this book! Can't wait to check out more books by Cary McNeal...these are hilarious!
