Default Some People Try too Hard to be Funny

And end up looking like idiots.

No reason to put the additional description in there.

Lol, no but there's no reason behind putting the additional description of "Smells like booze" in there other than to take a jab at someone's addiction to alcohol. Which is quite unfunny.

Even if I wanted this card, his description alone, would make me wait until another one popped up and then purchase the card from someone else.

Unfunny? Yes
Looking like an idiot as a seller? Meh. Who cares. People have too much time on their hands worrying about stuff.

I'd be shocked in 1 out of 10 people even see where he wrote that. It took me like 5 times looking at the link.

So send the seller a message through Ebay and tell them.

As someone who has abused booze, a sense of humor is essential to get over it.

He probably meant that it smells like he was wearing it during a celebration.

That's funny but why would you actually put that on your listing.

Hilarious. Makes me want to view all of his auctions in hope of other great one liners. CC is a bum.

Well, the fact that he only has 3 auctions total make it easy to look.

I see where the humor can be found in this and some people just need to not take it so serious. Not saying I burst out laughing or anything but it put a little smirk on my face. Its a little joke, thats all. Plus, he paid money to put it on there and it'll probably drive away some business so he could be just shooting himself in the foot anywho.

Really didn't find it funny and thought it was stupid. But I guess who cares, probably won't help him sell or it or hurt him.

Are we bidding on a baseball card or trying to take the seller out for a date? Its not even really noticeable unless you're nitpicking. I missed it the first two times I looked at it.

That is why I always try my best to laugh at your posts. I figure if I do it enough you'll go away.
