"2 POUNDS OF BRONKEN WRISTWATCH BANDS"


Hoopy proving again that they’re worth their weight in gold with another submission, sadly of something that’s not even worth its weight in dog dirt, let alone scrap metal.

“2 POUNDS VINTAGE-CONTEMPORATRY OF MIXED MEN & LADIES WRIST WATCH BANDS.”

Contemporatry. My favourite type of watch band.

“General size from small to biggest”

Rather like dog poo.

“ALL OF THEM ARE BROKEN USED FOR PARTS ONLY”

Should you need broken parts.

“The lot that is pictured is a sample what is similar you will receive.”

i.e. two pounds of worthless tat.
Now, I’m as guilty as the next guy when it comes making bits of watches into jewellery and calling it ‘steampunk’, but this is the junk and detritus normally left over by such endeavours, not what you’d want to start with. I’m quite surprised they haven’t tried selling this as being ‘Steampunk“, but maybe that’s because they find it a tricky word to spell?

    What is the thinking here? I’m trying to come up with something other than “there’s one born every minute”, but not succeeding. Can’t just be laziness – packing them up for postage would be more effort than dropping them in the bin…

    Hang them round your neck, like an 80s rapper?

    Missed a selling point:
    Scrape out the smeg of accumulated dead skin, grease and cheap hand cream. Trowel it into some buns to make a tasty treat.
