It’s my favorite day of the week! I’ve got another edition of the OfferUp 8 for you, a series where I share some of the most insane things I’ve seen for sale on OfferUp, an online marketplace which stretches into the depths of people’s possessions. 

Here’s what I found this week.

Your Own Personal Darth Vader


That’s all it says. Just “Darth Vader.” My first instinct was that this was a person in a costume, but unless it’s a small child, that doesn’t make sense (I’m looking at the dog for scale). 

I think this is just a big Darth Vader statue. I cannot think of a single normal place for this to be in somebody’s home. Get away from my $150.

A … Calculator?


It says this is a “math toy” which sounds like a very clever way to trick a child into playing with a calculator. I like the vibe though; it’s giving (did I use that right?) 90s-Nickelodeon era.

This Horrifying Alien Baby


For only 50 bucks, this incredibly scary beast can be yours. I personally need to be at least one entire U.S. state away from that thing to get a good sleep at night, but to each their own.

Just So Many Locks


This dude just robbed a lock store, right? How does he have so many locks to sell? I assume these are $20 per lock, because otherwise this is the steal of the century. 

Both for you and for him.

This Signed ‘Hellraiser’ Mask


This thing is SIGNED, baby. I spy the name “Doug” in the corner, so unless it’s some other Doug, it appears to have been signed by Doug Bradley who played Pinhead in the “Hellraiser” movies. Betcha didn’t know that was his name.

A Fender, Probably


Yeah, this looks like a guitar. But what about, you know, the front? Maybe let’s try another photo choice. One that shows the thing you’re selling.

This “Clute”


I have done a lot of Googling, and as far as I’m aware, there is no variation of a flute called a “clute.” I’m quite sure this is a recorder.

None of that is the point, however. The point is that you shouldn’t buy things on the internet that have been in somebody’s mouth and then put that thing in your mouth as well.
