I was just goofing around on E-Bay this afternoon and ran across this auction:
Ok, lets see here I can get these for about fifty cents a pack at my local Meijers or Wally World or LESS. So, that works out to 6 packs for teh same price your charging for ONE?! Good luck on this auction kid.

I have never had a problem with the asking price for anything. Setting the price as high as you want is one of the benefits of the free market.
Now the idiot who would pay that price is a different story altogether.

That's kind of what I mean. You're not going to move this here as it is A) a VERY available item, B)considerably cheaper elsewhere, heck almost anywhere and C) of no meaningful collectable value. This didn't come from Elvis's pantry or was made the day man walked on the moon so there is no tie in there. I'd just like to see what kind of doofus would pay this much money for a fifty cent pack of ramen soup mix.

Hard to say, the seller got 9.99 for a ten pack of Ocean Spray drink mix. You can get a package of 6 – ten packs for 23.00 at Amazon.
That is double. Although this seller may have had free shipping vs the 6.00 from the Amazon seller.
I have also seen the ramen on sale for 3.00 a case of 24 in the recent past.

It's funny. A joke whether or not he gets a bid
and even funnier if he manages to sell it.

Or maybe what she's shipping isn't really ramen noodles.

Are Ramen noodles available everywhere (worldwide) that cheaply?
I'm not sure why anyone would want to pay that much for them but buying readily available (cheap) items locally and selling them in places where they aren't easily obtainable is the essence of trading.
