Hi Shirley welcome back.
I was searching for good eBay jokes but could only find this. I am only providing a link as I think it would push the posting limits of Auctiva? http://www.jokesandhumor.com/jokes/408.html
A man went to a bird auction one day. While there, he placed a bid on an exotic parrot. He really wanted this bird, so he got caught up in the bidding. He kept on bidding, but kept getting outbid, so he bid higher and higher and higher. Finally, after he bid way more than he intended, he won the bid - the fine bird was finally his! As he was paying for the parrot, he said to the Auctioneer, "I sure hope this parrot can talk. I would hate to have paid this much for it, only to find out that he can't talk!" "Oh, do not worry", said the Auctioneer, "He can talk. Who do you think kept bidding against you?"
