Description
My Uncle Bob lost an eye in WWII. The government gave him a beautiful brown glass eye. It matched Uncle Bob's real eye perfectly. I used to tell Uncle Bob "Hell Uncle Bob you can't tell that it's not real!" Of course you could tell it wasn't real because it never moved. Remember how Sammy Davis Jr's eye would never move? Well Uncle Bob's was the same. I think it made Uncle Bob feel better when I would tell him that you couldn't tell it from his real eye. Uncle Bob loved to drink. He said it was because of the war and all the terrible things he saw there plus losing his eye and all. The guys at the bar where Uncle Bob would go to drink used to tease him and call him names like "You one-eyed bastard" and names such as that. Uncle Bob would come home drunk and say how much he hated that damn glass eye because it didn't look real and the damn government gave him the cheapest damn glass eye you could get. That's when I would speak up and tell Uncle Bob that his eye DID look real and those guys at the bar were a bunch of assholes and he shouldn't hang out with them anymore. Uncle Bob finally drank himself to death and he wanted to be cremated so that's what we did. Uncle Bob's will was read and boy was I surprised when the lawyer said that Uncle Bob left his glass eye to me. He said something like "Since you like my damn glass eye so much and think it looks so damn real here it is!" I was stunned. I kept the glass eye in the top drawer of my chest of drawers right next to my condoms. One night my girlfriend went in the drawer to get a condom and damn near had a fatal heart attack. I love Uncle Bob and all that but my girlfriend said that if I don't get rid of that damn glass eye I would never get sex again! Well, what the hell do you do with a used glass eye? eBay! Buyer pays $3.20 priority shipping. No reserve! "The Mojo Man"

Binding contract.
     Placing a bid is a binding contract in many states. Do not bid unless you intend to buy this item at the amount of your bid.

Proxy bidding for all bids
     Please bid the maximum amount you are willing to pay for this item. Your maximum amount will be kept secret; eBay will bid on your behalf as necessary by increasing your bid by the current bid increment up until your maximum is reached. This saves you the trouble of having to keep track of the auction as it proceeds and prevents you from being outbid at the last minute unless your spending limit is exceeded. (See an example of proxy bidding). Also, in case of a tie for high bidder, earlier bids take precedence. And, keep in mind that you cannot reduce your maximum bid at a later date. Unless otherwise noted, bids are in U.S. dollars.
     If you have bid on this item before, note that your new bid must be greater than your previous bid.
