GIRL SPITS, MAN HAWKS, AUCTION SHUT DOWN
If you build it, they will come and spend their money like morons. Letting the market dictate seems to be fraught with risks that entrepreneurship will cross some major lines of conduct. Here we have the case of a large Chinese auction site, ala eBay, that recently banned a queued seller from making any money from providing saliva collected from pretty girls. If that seems hard to really get at first blush, some idiot got busted selling hot chicks’ spit on a huge auction platform with buyers clearly lined up to buy.
SPIT AS TONIC NEW LOW FOR PERVS AND DEMENTED OLD PEOPLE IN THE WAITING
Now the next step in attempting to understand this situation would likely entail asking, why would anyone consider buying a pretty girl’s saliva at auction? Well, in the latest debased version of snake oil sales, the answer is the vendor was hawking this as a “tonic” and a real special deal at $4.00 a bottle. While China is a notoriously gigantic market with a wide range of peoples and traditions that creates an even larger black market demand for goods (say, like bear gall bladder), selling hot chicks’ spit in a bottle as a tonic is a new low. It will be clear why shortly….

BANNED HUCKSTER CLAIMS IT WAS A FRONT TO TEST THE MARKETPLACE, WASN’T “REALLY” GOING TO SELL HOT GIRL SPIT AS CURE-ALL
Each bottle was offered for sale accompanied by a listing of the pictures of the 18-year-old girl the saliva was supposedly taken from. After a series of complaints, Taobao auction house deleted the listings. The seller, whose alias is Zhou, claims that his interest in placing the ads was just to see how far he could go with them. He says he will be moving on to market ‘drool’ next, but admits that so far he has not even sold one bottle of his… er, interesting products.

“The drool was all collected from 18-year-old pretty girls when they were sleeping. And buyers can pay later after they certified the authenticity of this product,” Zhou told the press.
See? Now you can sleep better at night. Unless you have a daughter, and she’s hot.
