This Guy Is Trying To Sell "Magic Irish Potatoes" On eBay And He Spins A Lovely Yarn About Them

This Irish guy has posted an ad for magical potatoes on eBay and you can still get your hands on these beauties.

Posted by rpbrady, he explains in the advertisement how he came into possession of these supernatural vegetables:

As I walked home the other night, as drunk as drunk could be, I stumbled upon a lost Irish traveller whose horse box had broken down, lucky enough I was able to help him jump start them and he was able to go on his way. Before he left though, he said, "Son for your good deed of kindness, I shall reward you with a lifetime supply of magic potatoes."

I didn't want anything at all, cause I was just helping the lad out, but hey, who is gonna turn down that? So I had a big enough job trying to carry them back to the cottage and me seeing double, but anyway so far so good with them. But there is just way, way, way too many of them, so I said I would offload some of them to you guys.

It's a pretty fair deal. A magic lucky Irish potato is hard enough to come across, but hopefully they will do the job of use. Slán.

You can't say fairer than that.
