A mother has tried to sell the "ghost" of her father on eBay. While his walking cane is the only thing the bidder will actually receive, it is assumed that "the ghost" will accompany the cane to it's final destination.
 



www.cnn.com
A woman's effort to assuage her 6-year-old son's fears of his grandfather's ghost by selling it on eBay has drawn more than 34 bids with a top offer of $78.

Mary Anderson said she placed her father's "ghost" on the online auction site after her son, Collin, said he was afraid the ghost would return someday. Anderson said Collin has avoided going anywhere in the house alone since his grandfather died last year.

This is certainly what I would call an enigma. While the premise may be subject to review, the question remains as to what boundaries will one exceed to actually trade a "ghost"? Personally speaking, I would probably be even more screwed up than I already am if I was told that the "ghost of grandpa" was gonna be sold to a total stranger for a couple of bucks.......
