From a holy corn chip to a rodent-sized suit of armour, eBay has seen some wacky purchases. Here’s a look at 5 items you won’t believe someone actually paid for.

A Dorito shaped like the Pope’s hat

Nacho average eBay sale.

In 2005, a Dorito in the shape of the Pope’s hat was sold for $1,209. We can’t be certain what flavour the chip was, but we’re sure it would taste heavenly.

A man’s life

Goodbye wife, goodbye life.

Following his divorce, Englishman Ian Usher sold his ‘entire life’ on eBay for $384,000. The listing included his home, belongings, an introduction to his friends, and a trial at his job. Then he wrote a book about it and made more money.

Justin Bieber’s hair

Baby, baby, baby… no.

After gifting his chopped locks to Ellen DeGeneres, the Bieb’s hair was put up for auction in 2011 to raise money for an animal rescue. It was sold for $40,668, making one happy Belieber and many happy cats and dogs.

En guard!

Because what responsible guinea pig owner wouldn’t provide their pet with a tiny handmade suit of armour and matching helmet? There’s one badass guinea pig out there after the suit sold for $1,150 in 2013.

Ad Space on a forehead

A walking, talking billboard.

Five-heads: unite! Apparently your large forehead could be a real cash cow. American man, Andrew Fischer, made $37,375 to advertise a snoring remedy on his for 30 days.
