I made a note to check eBay today to see what sort of weird stuff fans would be selling from Saturday's legal Spectrum looting. As expected, I found a few chairs and other assorted items, but then I came across this. We'll just let the item description do the talking. ALL CAPS ALERT.

That's right, you could make the most dangerous children's swing ever constructed out of it. Or perhaps a comically large magnet for your next Warner Bros. production. The choice is yours, but they prefer pickup. Phew, that's a relief. We were really worried how USPS would classify a five foot tall "U" designed for threaded mounting.
Here's the link if you're so inclined. Remember, folks, they will take the best offer.
How can you not love this city?
