In today's example of "shit people actually pay money to own" comes the high-priced, deep-fried lady box that's all yours -- if you can cough up the cash.
The Vagina Onion Ring, now up for bid on eBay, is not only a sure sign of the end of times, but also of pure entrepreneurship.
Not only did someone have the eye to spot the onion slices fried together in the shape of a cooch (in a sleeve full of other deep-fried onion rings, nonetheless), but the finder was also smart enough to know someone dumb enough would buy it.

"Selling my Va-jay jay Onion Ring," writes Ohio-based user yv2k1131954 in the official Vagina Onion Ring description on eBay. "Went to that restaurant where you have it your way on 8/27/2012 for a small order of Onion Rings. I got more than I bargained for."
The fried hot pocket is on the market until September 6, 2012, 17:24:01 (PDT), and bids made by eight eBay users are currently up to $9,100, which puts this pink canoe in the crazy eBay ranks of the Virgin Mary toast that sold for $28,000, the Corn Flake shaped like Illiniois that sold for more than $1,000, and the piece of gum Britney Spears chewed on for $14,000.
Shipping and handling is $4.
Important buyer's note: while the onion ring has been refrigerated since August 27, it's not recommended for "eating or consuming" ... And we're going to let that marinate.
