Turns out, there are living, breathing witches in the world who aren’t Bette Midler.
And apparently, these non-Midler she-devils have been selling hexes, spells, and other fictional bullshit on the internet for years. For much of that time, these supernatural lunatics (as they prefer to be called) were peddling their wares on eBay. Well, eBay had enough of that shit in 2012. Not only did they ban the practice of selling intangible items, eBay included a “Burn the witch!” clause in their user agreement, along with an elaborate outline of the best way to find a witch, kill her and return her soul to Satan (it includes a newborn duck, a liberal application of Dawn soap, and the Buy It Now button).
Basically: Etsy’s doing the same thing now that eBay had the balls to do years ago.
That’s right. Etsy. You know… etsy? The website famous for letting users buy a ball of used yarn that’s shaped like a larger ball of used yarn?
Yeah that one.
That’s the one that’s not cool with selling bullshit.
Anyway, the supernatural lunatic community is outraged and that’s spawned a bunch of other websites dedicated to allowing other supernatural lunatics the ability to buy and sell spells. (Like this particularly nutty one).
And you know what THAT MEANS…
It means nothing at all.
Some dumb people will be paying some slightly less dumb people money for dumb stuff.
Sorry that this one is anti-climatic. Shrug.
Editor’s note: Nick only says this because he just bought a Protection Aura for $125. It gives him Spell Resistance +8.
