If you ever sell something on Ebay, be sure to follow this one simple rule: before posting a photo of your goods, make sure said photo doesn’t contain you’re, well, goods.
That rule was recently broken over in England, where a young woman selling a dress accidentally included a nude photo of herself in the background. The photo is above, although I’ve added a hula skirt for modesty’s sake (not to mention for the sake of the children).
Talking to the Sun, the woman said that ‘It’s so embarrassing. It is such a dizzy, stupid thing to do and now the whole world’s seen me in the nude.’ Yup, yup, and yup – although some people do think it was a publicity stunt (it is a bit hard to believe that she wouldn’t have noticed that she was in the picture, but who knows?).
Anyway, eventually realizing her mistake she re-listed the dress with a slightly more modest photo (although interestingly she’s still forgoing pants):
At one point, the new listing had been bidded up to over $175,000 – but you know what? I’m going to go out on a limb and guess that most of the bids were fake.
