5 IAN WOOSNAM’S RYDER CUP GOLF BAG
Celebrate the European team’s heroic stuffing of Tiger Woods and chums by bidding on this golf bag used by captain Ian Woosnam back in 1983′s Ryder Cup (when, er, the Americans won). The bag’s a bit battered – I’m imagining Woosie giving it a good kicking when the European team lost – but for £750 I’m sure there’s some golfing fans out there who’d give it a good home. More Info
4 CELEBRITY HELLO KITTY SURFBOARD
Okay, so a pink Hello Kitty surfboard may not seem like the manliest item to blow your savings on, but it has been signed by a stellar line-up of celebs. Well, kinda. Oh, alright, it’s been scribbled on by Jessica Simpson, Kevin Federline, Carmen Electra, Snoop Dogg, Paula Abdul and Orlando Bloom, among others. A mixed bag, in other words. But with a starting price of $2,500, all proceeds are going to charity, so SHAME ON YOU for turning your nose up at it. More Info
3 ELVIS PRESLEY’S DEATH COAT-HANGER
Woah there! I’m not suggesting that this innocuous-looking coat-hanger had anything to do with The King’s death. The finger of blame should be pointed at the peanut butter’n’lard sarnies for that. Instead, this coat-hanger was used to transport Elvis’ favourite suit to the Memphis Funeral Home, so he could be buried in it. The undertaker kept the hanger, and it’s now being sold on eBay for a King-sized $15,000. Although you do get a rare copy of American Cemetery magazine thrown in for free, you lucky things. More Info
2 AUSTIN POWERS FEMBOT
If you remember the fembots that appeared in Austin Powers 2: The Spy Who Shagged Me, and wanted one for yourself… well, you should probably get out more. But failing that, one’s just come up on eBay for a starting price of $1,500. It weighs 30 pounds, and is made of silicon skin with a fibreglass interior. Oh, and it comes with the original dress worn in the movie, so you can re-enact key scenes accurately. At least, until your worried friends and family section you. More Info
1 1970s ROBOT CANDY VENDING MACHINE
Wow, Canada must’ve been ace in the 1970s – they had robot cotton-candy vending machines which played music AND wheeled along the ground. It was a futuristic paradise! And now one of said machines has creaked its way onto eBay for a starting price of $1,999, although if you’re not Canadian the shipping costs may put you off. Its eyes light up, and it plays five songs while you gorge yourself on cotton-candy, which I’m reliably informed is like candy-floss. More Info
